Customer

The Customer is a Sweden-based IT company that specializes in file security software development. During their 10-year presence on the market, their encryption solutions got over 20 million downloads worldwide.

Challenge

The Customer’s existing product line uses the powerful Advanced Encryption Standard, recognized by the U.S. Government as reliable enough to protect information of Secret and Top Secret tiers. With their Windows desktop app already recreated on mobile (iOS, Android and Windows Phone versions) by ScienceSoft, the Customer requested its MacOS version, so that they could offer their software to a wider audience.

Solution

Satisfied with the competency that ScienceSoft demonstrated in the previous Xamarin project, the Customer chose to invest in the same vendor and the same technology. Our team used Xamarin and cross-platform XVT libraries to recreate a .NET project version on MacOS.

Since the MacOS UI was being developed by another team and wasn’t finished until our scheduled project start, our developer had to build a MacOS application while completely in the dark of the future app’s design. Once the UI was received, we proceeded to adjusting it with the MacOS app functionality that was by now complete.

Results

Adapting successfully to the inverted development workflow, ScienceSoft managed to meet the deadlines and quality standards. The Customer is satisfied and now plans to enhance their mobile apps’ functionality with the help of our team.

Technologies and Tools

MacOS, Xamarin, Bouncy Castle, Mercurial, XVT, .NET
