Sybase sets sights on corporate iPhone e-mail

updated 05:05 pm EDT, Mon May 19, 2008

Sybase & iPhone e-mail

Enterprise developer Sybase has plans for its own proprietary iPhone e-mail software, Reuters reports. The company's CEO, John Chen, says that an iPhone application should be released "soon," and certainly before the end of 2008. It will let people access corporate e-mail with the same amount of security available on other phones, such as Palm's Treo or RIM's BlackBerry.

Security has been one of the primary obstacles to corporate adoption of the iPhone, though Apple is attempting to remedy this through support for IT administration and WPA2 encryption. Such safeguards have been available on other phones for years. Chen meanwhile notes that it is already working on support for Android, Google's forthcoming smartphone platform.

    what a load of c***!

    The iPhone ALREADY supports securely accessing email. Both POP and IMAP support fully encrypted, secure communication between the client and server. If anything, using some proprietary protocol to transfer the data makes the data LESS secure, as fewer people know the protocol and is MORE likely to have some vulnerability.

    Push E-mail

    Yes, but is Yahoo's push e-mail secure? That is the only push e-mail that Apple supports now.
