Certicom releases e-mail security software for Pocket PC
Posted on 18-Mar-2003 22:02 | Tags Filed under: News



Certicom Corporation announced the availability of movianMail, the first secure e-mail solution based on S/MIME version 3 for use with Microsoft Pocket Outlook. movianMail enables enterprise and government users to easily send and receive digitally signed and encrypted e-mail messages on their Pocket PC device.

“Through the release of movianMail, Certicom is showing its continued commitment to advancing the security of wireless communications,” said Mary Rose Becker, group manager for the Mobile Devices Division at Microsoft Corp. “It’s exciting to see a Microsoft Mobility Partner Advisory Council member taking a leadership position in the wireless security applications market, bringing valuable solutions to our mutual customers.”

movianMail by Certicom provides true end-to-end security for both e-mail messages and their attachments over any wireless network. It is the only wireless secure e-mail solution to store all messages encrypted on the e-mail server, in addition to offering indisputable proof of the message’s origin through digital signatures. Governments and other organizations that require highly protected information are mandating S/MIME to secure their e-mail.

“movianMail is a key component of Certicom’s support for wireless handhelds and fulfills an immediate need in the marketplace for true end-to-end security of wireless e-mail messages,” says Ian McKinnon, president and CEO of Certicom. “Our latest product offering extends the possibilities of secure e-mail and places Certicom at the forefront of wireless security innovation.”

To meet the strict security requirements of the US Government, movianMail is available as a Government Security Edition (GSE) product. Along with movianVPN GSE and movianCrypt GSE, movianMail GSE gives government agencies the ability to extend strong security to wireless devices. movianMail GSE also supports certificates and keys stored on the Department of Defense (DoD) Common Access Card, ensuring even stronger security and authentication of email messages and attachments.

movianMail includes the following benefits:

  • Standards-based – movianMail is based on S/MIME v3, the de facto standard for secure e-mail messaging.
  • Transparent – once configured, movianMail automatically secures e-mail sent between users. The user is notified only when a message could not be secured.
  • Interoperable - movianMail is designed to interoperate with today’s most popular desktop clients and e-mail servers.
  • Quick Deployment – movianMail does not require any server-side components.
  • Policy Driven – security administrators can create policies that can enforce the organization’s security policy regarding outgoing e-mail messages.
  • Platform support – movianMail supports x.509v3 certificates from Entrust, Verisign, Microsoft, DoD PKI and others to leverage existing PKI infrastructures.

    Along with movianVPN and movianCrypt, movianMail gives mobile professionals the most complete suite of security applications for wireless handhelds. movian by Certicom brings together the convenience of mobility with the security demanded by all organizations.
