The Bat!-tle for a safe portable email begins

Smart road warriors have a new weapon to protect sensitive client data and guard against malicious virus attacks while retrieving email on the road. The Bat! Voyager PRO from Ritlabs, SRL combines The Bat! portable email client with powerful encryption software and a unique Disk Firewall feature, all pre-loaded onto a convenient 256MB flash drive. With The Bat! Voyager PRO, business travelers can securely manage personal email from any computer with an Internet connection, while accessing their entire email archive and address book with no extra installation required.

Mobile email users simply insert The Bat! Voyager PRO flash drive into a USB port and enter a PIN code to safely process emails and protect critical data when working on vulnerable hotel and wi-fi networks or traveling overseas. No information is left on the computer, and email messages can be encrypted to ensure that private information remains private along the entire communication chain. The Disk Firewall feature gives added protection to data and corporate networks against attacks through remote email access points – often the weakest link in the security chain.

With new federal privacy rules and heightened concerns about personal data theft, email security is fast becoming a top priority for companies and mobile business professionals. According to a recent survey by InformationWeek and Accenture, fifty-seven percent of U.S. companies reported being hit by viruses over the last year, mostly through email. Worms and viruses exploit security vulnerabilities found in many email programs to install harmful Trojans that help potential intruders break into computer networks.

Even if the flash drive is forgotten, lost or stolen, data remains secure – no unauthorized access to information will be allowed.

The unique Disk Firewall feature, from Dekart, is a great addition to encryption that renders extra application-level protection to files, ensuring further privacy. The user defines a list of trusted applications that can access the drive, while all other applications are rejected automatically. Viruses and worms are locked out, and intruders are prevented from using copy programs to capture valuable information.

Professional email client, including super fast processing, support for multiple POP3 accounts from all major email clients, spam blockers, built-in backup and restore functions, email templates, and powerful message filtering and automated handling tools to help manage large amounts of email more effectively.
