DataViz, Inc., has updated the RoadSync software, its Exchange ActiveSync client, to support Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition devices, starting with the HP iPAQ hw6500 series and Samsung i700 series.
This edition of RoadSync will extend the current capabilities of Exchange ActiveSync for Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition devices to support new mobility features, including tge Direct Push Technology, introduced with Exchange Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2) and until now only available with Windows Mobile 5 devices.
Prior to this announcement, RoadSync has offered enterprises Exchange ActiveSync connectivity with SP2 support specifically for non-Microsoft based mobile devices.
With RoadSync installed, customers using Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition devices will have access to SP2 mobility features including Direct Push Technology, remote wipe security, on-line GAL lookup as well as select IT policies.
Support for Direct Push Technology ensures that the device automatically receives new e-mail and other PIM data from a company's Exchange Server. RoadSync uses an HTTP connection with industry-standard SSL encryption to securely push e-mail, calendar and contact notifications to and from the device.
Through central device management tools, Exchange administrators can trigger a remote wipe to remove all sensitive data from the device. This security feature will help to ensure corporate data is not compromised when devices are lost or fall into the wrong hands.
