Smartphones no longer sidelined: Secure data communication and complete protection for the intelligent devices of mobile managers
New Level of Security for Windows Mobile
networks without having to worry about opening potential security gaps.
certgate's Protector for Smart Phones offers a randomly scalable security level for
Windows mobile devices, including a high-end solution for top security zones. It uses
the certgate Smart Card functionality to prevent unauthorized access by ensuring
tamper proof smart phone configuration. Whenever required, functions like Bluetooth,
WLAN, or ActiveSync etc. are deactivated and certain applications and ports are
blocked – as a result, infiltration with harmful software is effectively prevented.
"A top-security military cell phone of the kind the American president uses would
obviously be unreasonable for us Europeans," says Dr. Paschalis Papagrigoriou,
CEO of certgate GmbH. "On the other hand, mobile devices without hardware
protection represent a serious risk for network safety." To avoid that risk,
Papagrigoriou further points out, many large organizations have simply prohibited
their staff from using Smart Phones. "But with our solution, even mobile devices can
be integrated in the PKI."
The certgate Smart Card is equipped with a crypto-processor capable of generating
and storing digital key pairs (RSA 2048 Bit). Certificates and keys stored on the
Smart Card are used to encrypt all user data, thus protecting them against
unauthorized access even if the device is lost. In addition, they are also used to encrypt and electronically sign e-mails and to access protected networks (VPN) or secure websites (SSL).
With the certgate Protector, companies will now be able to extend their security
concepts to their managers' and field staff's handhelds and smart phones.
certgate can be found at CeBIT until March 8, 2009
