securing the corporate pda

Novell has had a product out for years that manages & secures pda & data.

It does palm of course, wince/ppc, rim, & they are expanding it to others.

No, it does not require a netware server (most novell products dont)

For those of you who might remember it, Zenworks for Handhelds started off life as Callisto Orbiter. Novell aquired Callisto in November 2001 or so.

After quite a bit of research we're now using AppLock from Pocket Science in Australia to secure Palm handhelds (OS 5 only currently) in our environment. Works great.

No affiliation, just a happy customer. We are however still looking for a similar OS 4 app.


Not just in business world

This is happening in the education world too; people aren't taking data security seriously enough. A lot of high schools now store student data on handhelds, and many are simply asking that users enable the built-in password protection. I mean, unless they're using something like Principalm - - that encrypts everything, then addresses, schedules, grades, attendance, etc. can be available to thieves in an unencrypted form. This is a serious issue.

Trust Digital has also offered similar security software for some time.
