President’s Message from Mark Rotman Mobile: I am often asked for my thoughts on EAS (ActiveSync) vs OWA security given the amount of corporate mail that is being accessed and stored on personal mobile devices. It is always a tradeoff between the convenience of native email client and information security. Consider what happens if the device is lost or stolen (3.1M stolen last year in the US), how secure is the cloud backup that most devices default to, can you enforce policies in the device (eg. strong passwords), and what is the cost to the enterprise of data exposure.
OWA on the mobile solves a number of these issues and OWA on the mobile device with Messageware solves many more. Give us a call if you would like to explore this in more detail.
I hope to see you at the RSA Conference in San Francisco in April, or at the Microsoft Ignite Conference in Chicago in May!

Messageware OWA Client Suite 2013 Updates
Messageware is pleased to announce the latest release of our OWA Client Suite 2013. This release updates both OFFICE 365 and ON-PREMISE editions. The OWA Desktop interface has also been refreshed and users will appreciate how easy it is to work with OWA when a small desktop app is managing their Inbox and Calendars.
The Messageware OWA Client Suite 2013 vR20 is currently available for production installation and contains both of our award winning client side applications that bring desktop Outlook functionality to the OWA user.
Messageware Adds Additional Product Features
Plus Pack 2013 now includes an Advanced Search feature that gives users the capability to search for recipients in the Corporate Global Address List using customizable search fields. Advanced Search is very useful for finding individuals in a particular department of office location and zeroing in on one individual in an organization that may have several staff with the same name.
AttachView 2013 updates include enhancements to both the smartphone OWA user interface as well as the iPhone OWA App. Now users can easily work with a variety of document types on their phones, without the need to extract or forward corporate documents.
