PostX is introducing the PostX Envelope with Mobile Device Extensions, an added feature to its secure messaging platform that enables secure email delivery to mobile devices.
This new capability provides PostX customers with encrypted mobile email delivery without requiring users to download or install software on their devices. In addition, external recipients and users will be able to view sensitive emails and data on their mobile device regardless of the platform used.
According to the company the solution works on any web browser-enabled PDA or smartphone, including Windows Mobile, Palm, and Symbian.
"Mobile devices have become a critical business tool for professionals today; particularly when enabled with e-mail and messaging. As more sensitive information is being exchanged via mobile devices it becomes increasingly important for this data to remain secure, both in transport and post delivery," said Michael King, research director of mobile and wireless, Gartner. "The adoption of an end to end solution to ensure this security needs to be an imperative for any enterprise undertaking a mobile data project."
PostX Envelope with Mobile Device Extensions allows data to remain encrypted and secure at all times enabling the recipient to securely reply and forward emails as they would normally.
"One of the truly unique capabilities PostX provides is the ability to deliver secure, encrypted email communication vital to businesses everywhere, at all times, regardless of platform or device," says Scott Olechowski, Vice President of Product Strategy and Business Development, PostX. "Business practices are not limited to communication that happens behind the corporate firewall anymore. For mobile technology to remain effective, new ways of protecting email that is sent outside of the network needs to be developed, and PostX is the first to address this issue."
