Increasing security and smartphone support
TORONTO, Oct. 2 /CNW/ - 01 Communique Laboratory Inc. (TSX:ONE) announced
today that Hitachi Business Solution ("HBSol"), a group company of Hitachi
Ltd., issued a press release in Japan on October 1st, 2007 announcing the
release of DoMobile Ver.2.5, the latest version of HBSol's secure remote
access system with increased security and additional smartphone functionality.
"One of the major concerns Japanese businesses have identified with
remote access is the issue of "information leakage", said Andrew Cheung,
President of 01 Communique. "DoMobile Ver.2.5, representing the next
generation in remote access, has increased security features built in that are
designed to resolve this issue. The combination of our technology with
Hitachi's FLORA Se210 notebook and server provides a turn-key remote access
solution offering businesses the ability to stay connected and not be
concerned about the loss of sensitive information."
"The market for secure access solutions in Japan is large and expanding
representing an excellent opportunity for strong revenue growth for our
company," says Andrew Cheung. "We have industry leading technology, protected
by patents, that resolves one of the major security issues facing remote
access today. We have a strong partner in Hitachi who has taken the product to
market through Hitachi Ltd's extensive sales channels. With their commitment
to sales and marketing and our commitment to support we are confident DoMobile
Ver.2.5 will be successful. We look forward to capitalizing on our investment
as HBSol's sales and marketing initiatives are realized."
The package is now available throughout Japan with customer shipment
expected November 2007. It is being distributed by Hitachi Ltd. and its
Under the terms of the agreement between the parties HBSol has the
exclusive marketing rights to DoMobile-CSE in Japan and pays 01 Communique a
royalty on sales. In addition the companies have made a joint patent
application in Japan. The patent application is a continuation of 01's U.S.
479 patent, which is the patent 01 Communique alleges Citrix Systems Inc.
Translation of the HBSol press release follows.
"There have been numerous articles in the media concerning theft of
personal and confidential information resulting in heightened public concern
about the security of public information," said Shinji Sugawara (Package
Solution Div. of Hitachi Business Solution Co., Ltd.). "As a result many
companies do not allow employees to take laptops out of the office thereby
reducing the business' mobility and ability to respond to critical issues."
DoMobile CSE Ver.2.5 alleviates these types of security concerns. By
combining DoMobile CSE with Hitachi's "FLORA Se210" (a secure notebook PC
without a hard drive), Hitachi's customers have a complete and secure remote
access system. This combination helps to prevent "information leakage," a
common problem associated with remote access whereby files are moved from a
company's network to a notebook PC, which may be lost or the files become
compromised. Hitachi's FLORA Se210 secure notebook operates as a "dumb
terminal" allowing the user to access their PC and work as if they were at the
office; however all files remain on the corporate network.
"The market for mobile technology for business use is growing rapidly,"
said Shinji Sugawara. "Lead by Willcom's "W-ZERO3", most cellular phone
carriers are now releasing new smartphones equipped with Windows Mobile, which
in combination with fixed charge plans, is accelerating the number of
DoMobile CSE's features, combined with the FLORA Se210 Server
Introduction Model, make it an ideal security solution for small-medium sized
enterprises. Hitachi, Ltd and its partner companies will distribute the
package, with shipping starting in November 2007.
To address the needs of this growing market improved support and new
features for smartphones have been added for DoMobile, V.2.5.

Easy to introduce for small-mid enterprises or section units
Generally it involves significant reconstruction of the existent network
system to introduce remote access systems. However, DoMobile can be introduced
without changing the network construction due to its patent pending (in Japan)
technology resulting in reduced start-up costs. Additionally, system
requirements are on the same level as an open web server, making its use
possible for small-medium enterprises or section units.
(Highlighted new features of Ver.2.5)
(*) Windows Mobile smartphone supported
Remote control function through a smartphone with Windows Mobile 5 or 6
is now supported, as is WVGA screen resolution. This makes it possible for the
smartphone to run applications on a remote PC. This new feature will expand
the applications of smartphones for businesses, making mobile work faster and
(*) More server machines supported by an updated server OS
The updated server operating system expands the range of server machines
