DataViz's New RoadSync Supports Windows Mobile 2003

DataViz has announced that RoadSync, its Exchange ActiveSync client, will 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 Direct Push Technology, available in Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Exchange Server 2003.

In March 2005, DataViz licensed the Exchange ActiveSync technology from Microsoft to integrate into its RoadSync solution. 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, GAL as well as select IT policies.

The following new features are among those that will be supported with RoadSync for Windows Mobile 2003 when installed in combination with SP2:

- Direct Push Technology
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.

- Remote Wipe Security
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.

- Global Address List (GAL)
Access to the corporate contact list, also known as GAL, over-the-air provides a deeper level of mobile office connectivity while maintaining a local personalized and filtered contact list on the mobile device.

- Select IT Policies
Support for select remotely enforced IT policies will provide Exchange administrators with the ability to manage user policies such as requiring a device password.

Using the Exchange ActiveSync protocol licensed directly from Microsoft, RoadSync provides secure, wireless and "Direct Push" synchronization of corporate e-mail, calendar, contacts and attachments - all in one affordable, scalable and easy-to-manage package.
