Mobile Security Software Extended To Pocket PC

Courtesy of Mobile Pipeline

Fiberlink Communications said Tuesday that its Extend360 mobile access and security software now works on Pocket PC handhelds.

For now, the software works on Pocket PCs based on the Windows Mobile 2003 platform but it will also support the recently-announced Windows Mobile 5.0 when devices based on that platform are released, the company said in a statement.

The software provides a single interface for mobile users that can help them detect and log on using various types of access methods ranging from dial-up to Wi-Fi hotspots. Also in the interface is access to various encryption and other security features.

"When Gartner's research showed roughly 1.5 million Windows Mobile devices shipped in the first three months of 2005, we saw a huge opportunity to extend our mobile workforce solutions to users of personal digital assistants," Billy Stephens, the company's vice president of product management, said in a statement. "Workers that use a variety of connected PDAs, including those running on Wi-Fi and CDMA/EV-DO networks, can now use Extend360 to access all their network resources in the same way they access resources from their laptops."
