Kerio Puts Wireless Email and Groupware Within the Reach of Every
Small Business Kerio MailServer 6.3 syncs email, contact, calendar
and task data directly to ActiveSync enabled smartphones and PDAs
without additional third-party client or server software.
SANTA CLARA, California – November 7, 2006 – Kerio Technologies Inc.,
specializing in secure Internet software for small and mid-sized
businesses, today released a new version of Kerio MailServer that
offers Direct Push email for Windows Mobile smartphones and PDAs.
Users will be able to wirelessly synchronize their email messages,
calendar data, contacts, and tasks in their Kerio MailServer account
with a Microsoft Windows Mobile-based device.
“Mobile email can be both complicated and expensive for the average
small business owner to deploy,” says David Ferris, president and
senior analyst at Ferris Research. “Most secure mobile email
solutions require a groupware server, usually combined with another
expensive middleware server.”
“I want small businesses to benefit from mobile email, mobile
calendar, and mobile contacts just like large corporations do,” says
Martin Viktora. “Kerio MailServer takes Microsoft Exchange out of the
equation when it comes to delivering push email or looking up
contacts in Global Address List with a handheld device connecting
Support for mobile email in Kerio MailServer 6.3 is fully transparent
and does not require users to install any additional software on
their mobile devices. Likewise, Kerio MailServer does not require any
additional third-party middleware to push email, contacts and
calendars to mobile users.
Kerio also addresses a big worry of IT administrators – lost cell
phones and a potential loss or leak of private company data.
“We constantly see people losing their phones,” says Eric Near, Help
Desk Manager at the Nashville Symphony. “We really need to address
the problem of how to remotely delete company data from their phones
after such incidents.”
Kerio MailServer supports Remote Wipe allowing administrators to
simply delete all data from a particular smartphone linked to a
company mail server. As Remote Wipe is not available in older Windows
Mobile phones, Kerio MailServer 6.3 offers its own alternative
solution – Smart Wipe – for older devices that lets administrators
push alternate empty mailbox data to the phone thus erasing all
emails and groupware information.
Kerio MailServer supports all Windows Mobile smartphones and devices
such as the Palm Treo 700w and Motorola Q offered by Verizon
Wireless, T-Mobile’s SDA, and other OEM phones offered by Cingular,
Sprint, Orange and O2.
Kerio MailServer supports over-the-air synchronization for all
versions of Microsoft Windows Mobile operating system developed for
PDAs and smartphones including Windows Mobile 2002/2003/2003SE and
the newest Windows Mobile 5.0 and Windows Mobile 5.0 AKU2 as well as
Pocket PC, Pocket PC Phone Edition and SmartPhone Edition of
Microsoft Windows Mobile.
With Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync built in, Palm Treo 650 users can
directly sync up their corporate email and calendars with Kerio
