AppForge, Inc., is introducing AppForge Data Sync, a solution for data synchronization between mobile devices and industry-standard enterprise databases. AppForge Data Sync, built on enterprise data synchronization technology from Intellisync Corporation supports both the AppForge Crossfire and MobileVB solutions
Data Sync is designed to leverage the foundation of mobile application development from AppForge Crossfire 5.6. With the AppForge Data Sync SDK feature, developers have control of the synchronization process from Crossfire or MobileVB and can augment solutions to configure and access the underlying synchronization engine.
Other key features provide developers with secure, flexible data synchronization and remote data transfer capability, regardless of bandwidth or the reliability of network connections. Features such as bi-directional data synchronization ensure that changes and updates are reflected on both the device and the enterprise database. In addition, single-point client deployment capabilities automatically install all necessary supporting files on the device.
Data Sync also offers flexible user authentication, client database support and encryption options. User authentication includes Windows NT or Active Directory, LDAP and Custom for developers to create security policies to fit their environment. Encryption options include FIPS 140-2 validated Triple DES, FIPS 140-2 validated AES, SSL and Certicom SSL Plus EE.
Intellisync and AppForge entered into an OEM agreement in late 2004 to create AppForge Data Sync for the AppForge mobile application product line.
