IBM Delivers Enterprise Secure Mail For Smartphones

IBM has announced a major expansion of the IBM Lotus collaboration software and delivery of enterprise secure mail for Android, the iPhone and Nokia Symbian smartphones.

As a collaboration player, IBM is the first to announce plans to expand its enterprise mobile messaging offering in a future release of Lotus Notes Traveler. This will include mail, calendar and contacts support for versions 2.0 and 2.1 of Google's Android mobile operating system.

Lotus Notes Traveler is no-charge software that can be downloaded by Lotus Notes customers and provides two-way, over-the-air synchronisation of information between Lotus Domino data and mobile devices.

In addition, IBM's new application for the iPhone is called IBM Lotus Notes Traveler Companion, a plug-in to view encrypted mail on the iPhone. Available now in the App Store, the Lotus Notes Traveler Companion download allows Lotus Notes users, who synchronise their mail, calendar, contacts and Domino mail via Lotus Notes Traveler to view encrypted mail such as confidential business and personal data on the iPhone. The application requires Lotus Notes Traveler 8.5.1 software.

IBM's partnership with Nokia has led to a broad spectrum of collaboration capabilities on Nokia's smartphones including IBM Lotus Notes Traveler, IBM Lotus Mobile Connect, IBM Lotus Sametime and IBM WebSphere Portal, as well as XPages-based applications built with IBM Domino Designer developer software. IBM's Lotus Connections software also works with Nokia Symbian smartphones, enabling users to collaborate with social networks, update information and access shared files while on the go.

A future version of Lotus Sametime software for the Nokia Symbian smartphone devices is planned to offer users presence awareness and Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony click-to-call capabilities in the native address book on the device. This new Lotus Sametime functionality on Nokia devices is planned for commercial availability by the end of this year.
