PostPath Supports Devices

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- PostPath, creator of the industry's only email and collaboration server that offers enterprises a drop-in natively compatible alternative to Microsoft's Exchange(TM), today announced PostPath Server version 3.0.
The server now supports both Blackberry(R) Enterprise Server (BES) and
Microsoft(R) ActiveSync(R), the push technologies used by the vast majority of mobile devices for full enablement of email, calendaring, and other mobile services. In addition, PostPath Server 3.0 incorporates major performance upgrades that enable it to deliver three to five times the performance of Exchange for Outlook and mobile clients alike.

Today, companies are no longer relying on Outlook alone to access their data but are adopting a mix of access methods -- handheld devices, web-browser-based clients, and remote access -- in addition to Outlook. Existing corporate infrastructure is struggling to cope with the widespread rollout of this varied set of access methods.
PostPath 3.0 enables companies to broadly deploy mobile access alongside their Outlook desktops, and to use web browser-based access to supplement or displace traditional desktop systems, while solving performance, data management, and interoperability issues. The performance improvements implemented in PostPath 3.0 enable enterprises to give every employee large mailboxes, without running out of server or storage bandwidth. PostPath 3.0 also lowers infrastructure costs by enabling more users per server and more data per server.

"Broadening our support for devices and clients -- and substantially improving server performance with mobile devices -- supports our strategy of becoming the open corporate email and collaboration server, bridging new and old ways of working," said Duncan Greatwood, CEO of PostPath. "The infrastructure needs more performance, flexibility, and reliability to support mobile access.
It's time to escape the artificial restrictions and inflexibility of legacy architectures that were originally designed for only one type of client."
