NetMotion protects smartphones, too

Seattle-based NetMotion Wireless, which makes security software for wireless devices and networks, said today that its mobile VPN is the first to meet Palm’s requirements for Windows Mobile-based Palm Treo smartphones.

Users will now be able to conduct business securely using the mobile devices on cellular or Wi-Fi networks.

NetMotion said its Mobility XE Mobile VPN software uses the same authentication and encryption technologies approved for use by the federal government to secure data transmitted to and from mobile devices such as laptops, Tablet PCs, Pocket PCs and smartphones.

In addition to providing security, the software also allows Treo users to roam between cellular and Wi-Fi, or any IP-based network, without dropping the VPN connection or crashing applications.
