Trust Digital Supports Windows Mobile 6

New functionality supports secure wireless PDAs and latest Windows Mobile release for enterprise smartphones

SAN FRANCISCO -- Trust Digital, the leading provider of enterprise smartphone security management software, today announced support of smartphones using the recently released Windows Mobile® 6 operating system and enhanced support of wireless PDAs.

Trust Digital’s award-winning smartphone security software supports the most popular advanced mobile operating systems, now including Windows Mobile 6, by providing an easy way to secure, manage, and assist a distributed workforce. Security features offered in the Trust Digital mobility management solution include data protection, endpoint security, network access control (NAC), compliance reporting, policy management, device management, help desk capabilities, self-service portal for users and remote diagnostic capabilities.

As more and more enterprise IT managers are required to support a mobile workforce with heterogeneous devices --- utilizing a variety of operating systems such as Windows Mobile 6, Windows Mobile 5, Palm and others --- the need for a consistent security management platform is essential across all operating systems and a variety of device manufacturers. With Trust Digital support for Windows Mobile 6, mobile users can still select the ‘cool’ new phone without compromising security compliance.

In addition to the support of Windows Mobile 6, Trust Digital also announced the enhanced support of wireless PDAs, those devices without phone capabilities. These devices are gaining renewed importance in sectors such as healthcare, where federal regulations govern how information is used and shared, making mobile device management and security critical. Until now, the lack of a useable centralized security and management solution has prevented wider deployment of wireless PDAs and hampered the spread of electronic medical records. With Trust Digital, the IT team can easily support doctors using smartphones along with nurses and technicians using PDAs who are capturing job related information such as a patient’s medical records, symptoms, and healthcare trial results.
