The latest update of Sybase iAnywhere , a provider of secure mobile application, incorporates security and usability enhancements in order to strategize enterprise wise adoption. The new enterprise sandbox model is going to provide security and usability challenges that corporate iPhone user demands from Mobile Technology Vendors. It is a little difficult to provide secure infrastructure like data encryption for iPhone in comparison with Windows mobile or Symbian OS.
Users can use the sandbox as e-mail, calendaring, tasks, and contacts. The enterprise can protect the application by using the password and can also encrypt the data that is stored in the sandbox. The other useful features are administrative controls to manage the data cost of roaming to other networks, and support of remote consoles and Web services for task automation. The new features can reduce the total cost of ownership successfully.
