SafeBoot Launches Data Security and Access Control for Symbian Devices
Posted on 14-Sep-2005 19:16 | Tags Filed under: News



Control Break International (CBI) has released SafeBoot for Symbian OS, designed to protect data residing on Symbian-based devices using access control and encryption.

Phebe Waterfield, Senior Analyst at Yankee Group believes, "Businesses are prolific users of Symbian based mobile devices but many have not addressed the risk to sensitive information stored on these platforms. Strong authentication and prudent use of encryption are must-haves for regulated enterprises who have chosen to support mobile platforms for e-mail, text messaging or file transfer."

The software enforces mandatory, company-wide security policies. These policies are managed from a central point, with options for administration, deployment, upgrades, auditing, hot-revocation, recovery, and synchronization.

Password synchronization is integrated with Active Directory, Novell, and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) servers.

SafeBoot Device Encryption for Symbian OS provides users and organizations with an automatic and transparent encryption and decryption of data on Symbian OS devices, using multiple, standardized algorithms such as AES. It provides protection of data, e-mail and memory cards.

As an added security the Web-based SafeBoot webHelpdesk recovery tool permits the Helpdesk to reset user passwords remotely after the user successfully passes a verbal challenge-and-response verification and authentication with the administrator helpdesk via telephone.
