BRUSSELS, Belgium - October 4, 2001 - EZOS, a service provider active in the mobile I.T. business, is proud to announce the full support of EzWAP 2.1 for Microsoft Windows-Powered Pocket PC 2002 Software, the next-generation software for personal digital assistants (PDAs) from Microsoft Corp.
As a provider of services and solutions for mobile technologies, our goal has been to turn our initial WAP micro-browser into a Secure Mobile Internet Client. With version 2.0, we added WTLS and Push technologies; Version 2.1 is another major step in the right direction. Multiple markup languages support, including cHTML and XHTML basic, will allow us to offer the kind of access that millions of Japanese subscribers have been enjoying for some time now such as color and animated graphics. With more than ten million users, RSA SecurIDÂ® authentication is by far the worldâ€™s leading solution for two-factor authentication. This technology, which is embedded in our micro-browser, enables secure automatic connection to corporate networks for e-mail and mobile services.
â€œItâ€™s clear that secure communications and transactions over the air are going to explode. Since Internet standards such as HTML, HTTP, TLS, and TCP are inefficient over mobile networks, our current strategy is to establish EzWAP 2.1 as the de-facto Secure Mobile Internet micro-browser for the Pocket PC and Pocket PC 2002 platformsâ€ said Jean-Claude Streel, Business Development Manager.
â€œMobility isn't just about voice -- it's about having access to your data regardless of where you are. Microsoft recognizes that mobile data needs great software to become a reality", said Andy Haon, Director of Product Planning for the Mobility Division at Microsoft Corp. â€œWe are excited that EZOS is taking advantage of this to produce EzWAP 2.1 that will benefit users by providing a Secure Mobile Internet client.â€
EzWAP 2.1 has been specifically tested against Microsoft Mobile Information 2001 Server, thus delivering instant OutlookÂ® services to Pocket PC users via wireless application protocol (WAP) or compact HTML (cHTML) markup languagesRelated Links
