Credant Mobile Guardian Adds Proximity Based Security to Handhelds
Posted on 10-Oct-2006 00:11 | Tags Filed under: News



Credant Technologies has announced version 5.2 of Credant Mobile Guardian Enterprise Edition for mobile PCs and handheld devices. In this release, Credant adds three major security features.

The fist item is the CMG Shield support for Cisco Network Admission Control (NAC), protecing the enterprise against unauthorized or unsecured PCs from entering the corporate network. By denying access to PCs that do not have the CMG Shield installed, Credant and Cisco NAC ensure that all PCs meet security policy for compliance.

The over-the-air Sync Control for Microsoft Exchange Server detects and blocks any non-CMG Shielded handheld mobile device from downloading business email, ensuring that all handheld mobile devices meet corporate data privacy policies.

Proximity-based Handheld Access provides hands-free smartphone or PDA access and continuous operation. The software leverages Bluetooth connections by allowing a user to create a trusted relationship between their smartphone or PDA, and their headset or hands-free car kit. Proximity-based Access enables easy and continuous access to data as long as the trusted accessory is within range.

Adding an additional layer of security for organizations that want stronger application control, the new Whitelist option defines what applications can. This option, associated with an enhanced Blacklist, reduces the threat of unauthorized applications being installed that may introduce malicious code to the network.

CMG External Media Shield for Handhelds now enforces the use of strong passwords and FIPS-certified encryption of any data written to SD or CF cards. The data can be securely accessed from any Windows Mobile Pocket PC or Smartphone device, with or without CMG Shield installed. If a user forgets the password, a secure challenge and response recovery process ensures data is accessible.

Credant Mobile Guardian 5.2 will be available in November 2006. Pricing starts at US$85 per device.
