There are three key security issues to consider when accessing your company information from a wireless device:
o o o

Does the service ensure that only I can access my information? Does the service ensure that my information is secure as it travels across the Optus GPRS network Does the service prevent copies of my data from being stored openly on the Internet?

Optus MobileMail for Business was built with the strongest standards-based security to address all three of these issues. Optus MobileMail for Business verifies your identity and protects against unauthorised access by third parties to ensure that only you can access your information.
 



Verifying your identity through security credentials. When signing up for an account on the MobileMail Web site, you are required to establish a user name and password "credential." These credentials are matched to the Optus MobileMail for Business software that you download to your desktop. You must provide these credentials when you want to access your e-mail or PIM information from your mobile device. By comparing these credentials with the desktop software, Optus MobileMail for Business is able to verify your identity and grant access to your e-mail and PIM information. This process is similar to what happens when you want to withdraw money from an ATM machine. In both cases, you provide "credentials" that verify your identity and allow only you to access your account. Optus MobileMail for Business takes numerous steps to protect your credentials. The software applies a mathematical formula to transform the credentials before storing them. This ensures that each set of credentials is protected. Optus MobileMail for Business is able to immediately reset your credentials so that they can no longer be used in the event that they are lost or stolen.

 



Protecting against unauthorised access through system security. Optus MobileMail for Business further ensures security by taking steps to protect against intrusions by unauthorised third parties. First, the software uses advanced mathematical techniques to make it computationally unfeasible for an unauthorised third party to login through repeated attempts. Second, extensive sets of monitoring tools are used to identify abnormal activity that would point to an unauthorised attempt to access the service. Finally, the data centre is protected by numerous layers of physical security such as surveillance cameras and biometric readers, as well as numerous layers of network security such as router-based packet filtering and firewall configurations. These steps are similar to those taken by the most security conscious enterprises that use the Internet for business transactions. For example, if your company uses the Internet to exchange information with business partners, it is likely these same measures are being taken.

Optus MobileMail for Business ensures that your information is secure as it travels across the Enhanced Optus GPRS Network.



Optus MobileMail for Business establishes a secure link between your enterprise information and the mobile device to ensure that no one can intercept your information. Optus MobileMail for Business uses a security mechanism referred to as "Secure Sockets Layer (or SSL)" to communicate across the network. SSL is the most commonly accepted standard for protecting information on the Internet today. It is highly likely that you already use SSL to protect your credit card number when doing transactions over the Internet, or to protect enterprise applications when accessing them over the Internet with a Web browser. The GPRS Cellular radio network uses A5 over the air encryption the same as used by GSM phone conversations to additionally protect the already encrypted user data. Optus MobileMail for Business prevents copies of your data from being openly exposed outside of your enterprise.


Optus MobileMail for Business provides real-time access directly to the email and PIM information stored in your enterprise. The information is never retrieved and stored outside of your enterprise. This means that the information is always under the control of your IT administrator and the security policies in place for protecting your company network. Optus MobileMail for Business's approach to data access is superior to many methods commonly used today for accessing enterprise information. For example, many people commonly synchronise their e-mail and PIM information from their desktop onto a PDA for use while they are mobile. When the information has been synchronised onto the PDA, it is out of the control of the IT administrator. If the PDA is lost or stolen, then the enterprise information is at risk of being compromised. Optus MobileMail

for Business provides a much higher level of protection by allowing only you to access the information on a real-time basis. Optus MobileMail for Business and Corporate Use.

Do I need to have my mobile phone on to access MobileMail? A. Yes. On an XDA for example where there is only one GPRS connection for your mobile and your PC, then you need to have your mobile on. Q. Can I change my User Name once I have registered for MobileMail? A. No. You can ask Customer Service to deregister your old service and then reregister with your new User Name. Any settings or data under the old user name cannot be brought over to the new service. Q. Can I change my Mobile Number once I have registered for MobileMail? A. Yes. However, we will need to deregister your old service and then reregister with your new Mobile Number. Any settings or data under the old Mobile Number cannot be brought over to the new service. Q. The date and times on my mail is different on my MobileMail Desktop Client and my Smart Device. Why? A. The Time Zone set on your Smart Device (e.g. XDA), the MobileMail Desktop Client and your PC must all be the same. If they are not set to the same Time Zone then the same email viewed on each device will show a different time.

Q. What happened to my settings on my Smart Device? A. If your Smart Device loses power then some of your settings will be lost. If you were using MobileMail when you lost power then any data that you were creating when this occurred will be lost. Q. I have changed my password on my MobileMail Desktop Client but I cannot logon. What should I do? A. After you have changed your MobileMail password you need to re-key the new MobileMail password on the Desktop Client. Go to Tools/Settings/Login tab. Enter your new password here. If you do not update the password then you will not be able to log on to the PC Browser for MobileMail. Q. I just became enabled on GPRS but my MobileMail service will not work. A. Turn your GPRS service off then on and service will be enabled. Q. I am unable to access the Help guides. A. Ensure you have the latest version of Adobe reader. This is available for free on the internet at Q. I am a customer with a corporate service. I have registered for MobileMail but the service does not work. A. Your corporate may not subscribe to data services, therefore you may not have a GPRS connection. Check with your corporate comms manager to see if you are allowed to subscribe to this service. If not, then either organise to allow this service within your organisation or ring into Customer Service to get the service discontinued otherwise you will continue to be charged for it. Q. When viewing my Mail Folders including my InBox and Deleted Items sometimes the date is not shown. Why not? A. As the e-mail is for the same day, the date does not appear ie. only time. Q. I have an appointment and a meeting booked in my Calendar but they both show up as an Appointment on my MobileMail Desktop Client. Why? A. The Desktop Client displays all meetings and appointments as appointments. Q. I have Mobile access to documents enabled on the Desktop Client but am unable to access any documents from my mobile device. A. File access is currently supported on the web and PDA devices but not on mobile phones. Q. I have registered and installed MobileMail but am unable to access the service using my internet browser. A. If your company does not allow you to surf the internet then you are also unable to use MobileMail. Q. What happens if I forget my password and I am away from the office? A. The forgot your password function is only available from your PC. Also if you use this function the new password is emailed to you therefore you MUST have access to your corporate mail (and this can't be going through MobileMail as you cant logon as you have forgotten your password).
