Extended Systems' Mobile Solution Offer Secure Access Via the Web

3/4/2003 - Extended Systems (Nasdaq: XTND), a leading provider of mobile information management solutions for the enterprise, announced the release of XTNDConnect Real Time, an addition to the XTNDConnect product arsenal that gives secure access to corporate email and PIM (personal information management) via any browser-enabled device including handhelds, laptops, and desktop PCs.

XTNDConnect Real Time allows wireless users to take advantage of the proliferation of WiFi "hot spots" and airport and campus Internet kiosks. It also increases the value of browser-based phones, PDA's and two-way pagers. Additionally, employees working from home PCs have the benefit of real-time access to corporate data which helps organizations improve productivity and streamline workflow processes by making it easy for workers to remain connected while out of the office.

For IT Managers, the highly scalable solution is a secure and cost-effective way to provide corporate-wide, real-time email and PIM access. Because XTNDConnect Real Time is a thin-client solution, there is nothing for IT to deploy on the client side, making implementation easy and immediate. For enterprises who are in the beginning stages of adopting mobile standards, XTNDConnect Real Time offers the tools IT needs to develop some baseline strategies and corporate standards while introducing workers to the idea of mobile and wireless access to corporate data.

"Mobile workers have different data and device access needs depending on the job they perform," said Senthil Krishnapillai, senior product manager of Groupware solutions at Extended Systems. "With the addition of XTNDConnect Real Time to our mobile solutions kit, we now provide both online and offline access capabilities to better meet the dynamic needs of users while optimizing company resources and investments."

With the announcement of XTNDConnect Real Time, and the recent debut of its Live Connect technology (www.extendedsystems.com/ESI/Company+Info/Press+Room/default.html), Extended Systems raises the bar in the mobile marketplace by providing the most comprehensive set of solutions that enables enterprise organizations to choose the data access and connectivity option best suited for its mobile users.
