CHICAGO -- Sybase iAnywhere today announced Afaria 5.5, the next generation of the company's award-winning frontline management and security solution. Afaria 5.5 includes new capabilities to initially provision devices over wireless networks, expanded device security functionality, remote control for Windows Mobile devices, and expanded Patch Manager capabilities. Afaria Security Manager has also been updated to include FIPS 140-2 compliant encryption modules, which ensures corporations can safely extend sensitive data to mobile professionals and meet security directives and compliance requirements.

Afaria 5.5 is a core component of the recently announced Information Anywhere(r) Suite, a portfolio of products which addresses converging enterprise requirements for mobile email, security, device management and application enablement. Afaria 5.5 delivers full interoperability with the company's OneBridge (announced in a separate release today), providing users with an end-to-end secure email and messaging solution.

"What we have done here is significantly raise the bar on how IT can manage and secure wireless devices in the enterprise," said Joe Owen, vice president, engineering, iAnywhere. "Mobile devices are evolving at a very fast pace and are becoming more and more prevalent in the enterprise. Afaria 5.5 helps companies take advantage of the latest device technology while insuring that these new devices are well-managed and that the data is always secure."
