Pointsec, a provider of security software for laptop and desktop PCs, PDAs and smartphones, has released Pointsec for Smartphone, a new version of its security software for smartphones running Windows Mobile Smartphone 2003.
Pointsec said that its new system is the first available solution to offer extensive data protection including sign-on and encryption for mobile devices based on Smartphone 2003.
"The growth of the Windows Mobile platform, together with our pledge to support all common mobile software platforms, made it a logical step to develop and launch Pointsec for Smartphone, which we believe is the first available solution of its kind," said Peter Larsson, chief executive officer of Pointsec.
With the new solution, any data residing in files and folders is automatically encrypted in real time, with no user intervention required. E-mail and SMS data can also be encrypted and decrypted on the fly.
Features for centralised management and remote help are also supported, allowing for systems management and helpdesk staff to manage all users from a single point, through a common interface, regardless of the client platform.
Pointsec's security solution is currently available for several other market-leading smart phones, including the Sony Ericsson P900, Nokia 9300 and Nokia 9500 Communicator. Pointsec for Smartphone includes support for central management using Pointsec profiles. Pointsec profiles enable IT and security management to create, change, and enforce the organisation's security policies.
