What kind of encryption is being used by Capsule Workspace?

And I think the data is decrypted when you enter the passcode, can you clarify that?

1. The file is encrypted in the tuple level. One can Gather the database file from the application folder in iOS for example. Using iExplorer you can browse the iOS libraries and easily reach the application folder. Then use and SQL viewer to show that the database values are encrypted.
2. When you enter the passcode, you start a App-Wide VPN session in which you can see the de-crypted information on the CWS client.
