SecuBox protects information with strongest and most efficient encryption algorithm available today - NIST-approved AES 256-bit.

SecuBox creates a virtual encrypted storage on Pocket PC or smartphone, which looks like a usual storage to the user. All information written to this encrypted storage is automatically encrypted on the fly. Decryption and encryption is totally transparent and requires no additional action from the user. It encrypts all sensitive information keeping it secure and protected, even in such catastrophic cases when the PDA or smartphone is lost or stolen.

* Secure storage deletion - ensures that deleted files will never be recovered by special recovery tools.

* Change storage properties – encypted storages can be assigned read only and hidden properties.

* Multiple encrypted storages - up to 10 encrypted storages may be mounted at the same time.

Announcements from WebIS

Journal Sync 2.0

This week we released Journal Sync 2.0 which syncs Pocket Informant's Journal to Desktop Outlook for Windows Mobile 2003 and Windows Mobile 5.

Pocket Informant includes a Journal feature that allows you to create un-linked journal items as well as items linked to a specific contact, task, or appointment. But Pocket Informant alone will not sync the Journal to Outlook. Journal Sync takes that one step further and syncs up your data to Outlook through the ActiveSync connection on the desktop.

If you're using the Journal in Pocket Informant 2007 you really need to take a look! http://webis.net/journal
