NEW SOFTWARE FIXES WIRELESS SECURITY GAP ON HANDHELD COMPUTERS.

A new software package enables businesses to send confidential corporate and personal data, such as financial statements and medical records, to users of popular Palm and Blackberry handheld computers without fear of theft by computer or Internet hackers.

"Security concerns are the single greatest barrier to widescale deployment of corporate applications on handheld devices," said W.R. "Butch" Winters, CEO of wireless software maker Neomar, Inc. "With this technology, companies have 100% confidence that the data they send to handheld devices is secure." See www.neomar.com.

To date, a security gap between the "firewall" in corporate networks and the wireless networks themselves has made guaranteed confidentiality of such applications virtually impossible. The Neomar Enterprise Server creates a secure link between the corporate networks and handhelds themselves, closing that gap and protecting confidential data.

By closing the wireless security gap, companies can deliver corporate applications to their field work forces, as well as to their customers. Initial adoption of the software is expected in such industries as banking, financial services, insurance, and health care.

Neomar's software incorporates both server and browser components. The server software is installed and managed behind the corporate firewall, while the browser enables handheld users to view sensitive data and respond with complete privacy. Palm, Blackberry, PocketPC, and other popular handheld systems are supported.
