DataViz RoadSync Now Available for Windows Mobile Devices
Posted on 12-Sep-2006 09:53. | Tags Filed under: News.

DataViz, Inc. has announced an updated RoadSync, its Exchange ActiveSync client, now compatible with mobile devices running Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition software.

In addition to wirelessly synchronizing e-mail, attachments, calendar and contacts, this edition of RoadSync supports new mobility features added in Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2) such as Direct Push technology, Remote Wipe, Global Address List Lookup and IT Policy Enforcement.

As Microsoft Exchange added these new mobility features in SP2, a corresponding Messaging and Security Feature Pack (MSFP) was added to Windows Mobile 5.0 software, but there was still a need for comparable MSFP features for Windows Mobile 2003-based devices.

DataViz has developed RoadSync to fill this need by effectively delivering a similar feature pack for devices with Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition software. This provides IT departments the ability to further maximize their existing device investments while offering mobility in a more secure and managed way.

DataViz will also offer RoadSync for Windows Mobile 5.0. This version will build upon the current wireless synchronization capabilities while adding support for new Exchange 2007 productivity features such as: e-mail flagging, online mailbox search, support for linked SharePoint files and more. Those features are also available on RoadSync for Symbian S60 and UIQ 3.0.

Support for Direct Push ensures that the device automatically receives new e-mail and other PIM data from a company's Exchange Server. RoadSync uses an HTTP connection with industry-standard SSL encryption to securely push e-mail, calendar and contact notifications to and from the device.

Through central device management tools, Exchange administrators can trigger a remote wipe to remove all sensitive data from the device. This security feature will help to ensure corporate data is not compromised when devices are lost or fall into the wrong hands.

The software also supports for select remotely enforced IT policies will provide Exchange administrators with the ability to manage user policies such as requiring a device password.
