Intellisync: goAnywhere sells for an annual subscription fee of US$99.95.

It offers a solution for business professionals who usually work from home but require access to e-mail and desktop files when on the road. With Intellisync: goAnywhere, professionals can send e-mails with attachments and access files that reside on their home computer, using only their Web-enabled PDA.
Intellisync: goAnywhere provides secure remote access with 128-bit end-to-end encryption, doesn't expose any open ports on the user's PC, and doesn't store information anywhere on Pumatech's Intellisync: goAnywhere servers.
