Extended Systems Introduces OneBridge Mobile Secure Version 2.0
Posted on 2-Sep-2005 10:56 | Tags Filed under: News



Extended Systems is introducing OneBridge Mobile Secure version 2.0, an add-on software module to the Company’s OneBridge Mobile Platform.

OneBridge Mobile Secure 2.0 provides IT administrators with control over mobile devices and the information they carry. The software allows an organization to extend and enforce security policies to mobile devices currently located outside the the corporate firewall.

Version 2.0 brings strong encryption across all platforms and separates device authentication from device encryption. Although simple in concept, this has profound usability implications, enabling smartphone users to answer the phone without having to enter the device password. With FIPS 140-2 Validation and Common Criteria EAL-4 certification, OneBridge Mobile Secure 2.0 is suitable for government projects within the U.S., across Europe and other countries. In addition, version 2.0 provides end-to-end encryption and is capable of encrypting files found on external media cards, such as SD cards. The company says IT managers will also appreciate the software’s ability to remotely manage mobile devices from any browser.

From an end-user ease-of-use standpoint, version 2.0 employs easy-to-remember PicturePIN password capabilities. PicturePIN is a user-friendly interface that provides pictures for entering the PIN. To further increase security, the pictures are shuffled at each authentication. This makes it almost impossible to learn a PIN by “shoulder surfing.” OneBridge Mobile Secure 2.0 also supports the use of alphanumeric passwords, if desired. Centrally controlled security administration enables IT to switch from PicturePIN to alphanumeric at any time.

OneBridge Mobile Secure 2.0 is a rebranded version of software provided by Extended Systems’ partner Pointsec Mobile Technologies. Extended Systems and Pointsec recently announced that they would offer an integrated OEM version of each other’s solutions to their respective customer bases.
