iAnywhere launchs XcelleNet Afaria for Windows Mobile Smartphone
Posted on 12-Jul-2004 22:57. | Tags Filed under: News.

iAnywhere has announced XcelleNet Afaria Security Manager for Windows Mobile Smartphones. The company is a subsidiary of Sybase. Press information says this latest release addresses security and device management for Smartphones, handheld devices, laptop computers and tablet PCs from a single console.

"Smartphones have the capacity to hold substantial amounts of critical - often proprietary - data. However, their small size makes them susceptible to loss or theft. Enterprises must leverage the benefits of smartphones and counter the threats they may expose by implementing an effective device management and security framework," said Joe Owen, vice president engineering, XcelleNet Products, iAnywhere. "Security Manager for Smartphones extends iAnywhere's leadership in both managing and securing the broadest array of enterprise mobile devices with a single solution."

XcelleNet Afaria Security Manager for Smartphones is the first enterprise solution to provide the centrally managed, policy-based security solution required by enterprises. From the same administrative console that delivers management capabilities, enterprises can define, deploy, and enforce security policies that control the following:

  • User authentication through enforced power-on passwords
  • Data encryption on the device and on removable storage cards
  • Device and data lockdown - and data wipe - in the event of loss or theft.
  • Policies can be targeted at user groups or groups of devices allowing appropriate levels of security to be set for different user populations where necessary.

    XcelleNet frontline management products, Afaria and RemoteWare, allow companies to centrally manage and secure technology used on the front lines of business by mobile and remote employees. XcelleNet frontline systems management software helps companies manage devices, data and applications, regardless of the bandwidth available. XcelleNet frontline security management software provides enterprise-ready security solutions to protect mobile data and devices. XcelleNet M2M and RFID solutions provide a framework that gives visibility to remote operational data currently trapped within silos of monitoring and control in the field.
