Spb Software House Gives Enterprises More Control Over Their Pocket PCs with Spb Kiosk 4.0
Spb Software House has released Spb Kiosk 4.0, a new version of its enterprise-oriented application for Windows Mobile environments.

The company says Windows Mobile Pocket PC is a feature rich device with many built-in programs, games, multimedia features and other resources. On an enterprise environment some of these features are not needed and very often must be disabled. The main goal of Spb Kiosk is to lock down Pocket PC and allow only applications required by an enterprise to be available.

This new version of Spb Kiosk implements some new technology that uses some low-level techniques to work with system drivers and to intercept API calls. Device administrators now have control over applications running on the devices, and only explicitly allowed executables can be started. This technology effectively prevents known attacks like using remote tools, malicious programs started via memory card autorun and others.

Spb Kiosk keeps a device in kiosk mode by implementing a Kernel-level application block, replacing the touch screen driver, denying access to the taskbar and start menu and other features.

A device administrator can configure Spb Kiosk using a desktop-side Kiosk Builder. Then Kiosk Builder produces a customized Kiosk CAB which can be deployed to as many devices as needed. After Spb Kiosk is deployed on a device, it provides kiosk mode for selected applications. Spb Kiosk can be used with most enterprise applications, both native and managed (based on .NET Compact Framework).

Windows Mobile 5.0 support is now fully implemented on this new version. The software is currently available in English, Czech, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. Other language versions will be available shortly.
