Fujitsu Launches Network Service Enabling the Secure Use of Smartphones and Tablets for Business

Securely connects to corporate intranets without leaving business data on devices

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, August 18, 2011

Fujitsu today launched a network service that enables smartphones and tablets to securely connect to a corporate intranet.

With the new Mobile Browser Connection Service, customers can connect to a company's internal network over the FENICS II Universal Connect(1) service from a mobile device equipped with a special FENICS(2) Browser application from Fujitsu. This, in turn, enables enterprise users to access websites, applications, web e-mail, groupware, address books, and other resources without leaving business data and logs on their mobile devices. As a result, users are freed from having to worry about information leaks and can securely browse and update data.

Background

Amid a remarkable spread in the use of smartphones and tablets, companies are increasingly facing the need to employ such devices in a wide range of business scenarios. On the other hand, due to uncertainty about information leaks and other security risks, as well as concerns about deployment costs and operational burdens, many customers are hesitant to use mobile devices as part of their business processes.

In light of these circumstances, Fujitsu is offering the Mobile Browser Connection Service, a network service that enables mobile devices to securely connect to a corporate intranet. In addition, as an added service, Fujitsu will be offering the Mobile Content Conversion Service, which converts website content intended for PCs into a format that is easily viewable on mobile devices.

1. Securely and safely employ mobile devices for business – also supports personal mobile devices

The service is equipped with robust authentication functionality, including mobile device identification number registration and a login feature that can only be accessed by authorized users. Moreover, unlike standard mobile browsers, the service includes a variety of features that prevent business data from being left on mobile devices, including automatic cache clearing and restrictions on copy and paste functions. With advanced security measures in place, customers can securely and safely use mobile devices as part of their business processes. As such, the service is beneficial for companies allowing employees to use their own personal mobile devices for business purposes, rather than devices provided by the company.

2. Can be effortlessly employed through simple operations and an easy-to-view interface – delivering a specialized browser for Android and iOS

Users can connect to their company's intranet by simply launching the special FENICS Browser application and logging in using a pre-designated ID, making operations very simple. The FENICS Browser can be downloaded for free from regular smartphone application stores.

In addition, by taking advantage of the Mobile Content Conversion Service, website content intended for PCs can be converted to a mobile device format, thereby making content easier to view and enabling effortless operations.
