Web Information Solutions, Inc. and Ilium Software are together announcing eWallet 6.0 - a new release available for Windows Mobile and Palm OS, combining the earlier functionality of both FlexWallet and eWallet, and adds many new features, including stronger security, with AES FIPS and 256-bit encryption, more remote syncing options, and more security and customization options.
In addition, eWallet 6.0, based on FlexWallet for BlackBerry, will be released for Blackberry devices in the first half of 2008, allowing current eWallet and FlexWallet users to have compatible wallets across Windows Mobile, Palm, Blackberry, U3, and Windows desktop platforms.
WebIS and Ilium Software have worked together to create an easy migration path for FlexWallet users. From eWallet’s new Flex View, a display format that emulates the FlexWallet grid style display, to automatic FlexWallet wallet conversion, FlexWallet users will find the transition to eWallet an easy one.
“By combining the efforts of Ilium Software and WebIS together our customers win”, said Alex Kac, CEO of WebIS. “Ilium is focused on the wallet market and this move creates a synergy which over the next year is going to really shine between the two companies.”
With eWallet 6.0 Ilium Software is also unveiling the eWallet Web Companion. This web-based application allows eWallet users to view their information on the iPhone, iPod touch, Blackberry devices, Symbian phones, or any other device with a web browser and an internet connection.
The encryption method has been updated to a stronger, U.S. government-level 256-bit AES FIPS algorithm, offering better security for important information.
Users can also insert and encrypt files into their wallets, making it safe and easy to take data with them to access whenever they need it. And now users can even tell the program to automatically save a backup of their file any time they close or lock it, ensuring that no one will have to be without the info they need.
eWallet 6.0 also adds SFTP synchronization, allowing users to securely synchronise their information to remote locations.
