A new software package enables businesses to send confidential corporate and personal data, such as financial statements and medical records, to users of Palm and BlackBerry handheld computers without fear of theft by computer or Internet hackers. To date, a security gap between the firewall in corporate networks and the wireless networks has made it impossible to guarantee confidentiality of such applications. The Neomar Enterprise Server creates a secure link between the corporate networks and handhelds, closing that gap and protecting confidential data.

By closing the wireless security gap, companies can deliver corporate applications to their field forces, as well as to their customers. The company expects initial adoption from the banking, financial services, insurance, and health care industries. 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 to email The handheld system supports Palm, BlackBerry, and PocketPC systems.
