Hitachi, Ltd.’s, Ubiquitous Platform Systems Group and Certicom Corp., a Mississauga, Ont. provider of wireless security products announced an agreement today in which movian wireless security applications will be available on the Hitachi G1000 smart phone.

The collaboration will enable mobile workers to quickly deploy secure wireless access to enterprise applications, anytime, anywhere on the Hitachi G1000, the companies say.

Certicom’s movianVPN is a software client that establishes a secure tunnel from the device to the existing corporate VPN gateway, encrypting data end-to-end so it is safe from prying eyes.

It interoperates with more than 13 leading VPN gateways, including those from Cisco, Netscreen and Nortel.

According to Certicom, the product brings together the convenience of wireless communications with the security demanded by organizations looking to extend critical enterprise applications such as e-mail and web browsing to mobile professionals.

movianVPN provides secure access to the corporate network via wireless devices while movianCrypt(TM) offers secure data storage on the device. movianMail(TM) provides true end-to-end security for e-mail messages and their attachments over any wireless network.

Founded in 1985, Certicom products and technologies are currently licensed to more than 300 customers including Motorola, Research In Motion, Sony Ericsson and Texas Instruments.
