janusGATE Mobile - for Smartphones
janusGATE Mobile filters e-mail between the corporate Exchange email server and ALL smartphones (iPad, iPhone, Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile, Blackberry with Exchange Client) to actively prevent the delivery of sensitive information to any smartphone device, without any handset modification, and with no new mobile application to install.
Enterprises responsible for private and confidential information immediately gain direct control over the risk of information spillage via their smartphone fleet.
The Smartphone / Activesync Email Problem
According to Gartner, nearly 80% of smartphones (iPhone, iPad, Symbian, Windows mobile etc) have the capability to connect to Microsoft Exchange using ActiveSync.
Smartphones are inherently more insecure than LAN connected corporate workstations. They often have weaker passwords, they are not policy controlled, and by design are portable. They are often left in public places - and are often lost.
Without mitigation, connecting users’ smartphones to corporate e-mail increases the risk of data loss via these devices.
Data loss from smartphones is likely to be accidental. E-mail senders are unaware that once the e-mail is delivered to the recipient’s mailbox, it will be transmitted to a smartphone.
