Neverfail to improve mobile support

Plans to add more email packages

HIGH AVAILABILITY software vendor, Neverfail, is looking to support other applications in the mobile space besides just email, new CEO, Peter Parker, has revealed.

The growing reliance on smartphones and wireless PDAs offers plenty of opportunity for Neverfail to identify more mission critical applications to protect, he says.

Neverfail already offers support for Blackberry users. It can protect not only RIM's Blackberry Email servers but also Blackberry Mobile Data System (MDS) applications. Neverfail's products are sold through 750 channel partners worldwide.

AsJames Reynolds, sales director at UK Blackberry and Neverfail reseller, Mobo Tel, explained, "As Blackberry deployments become larger and more complex, business continuity becomes even more important.

Neverfail allows us to deploy a disaster recovery solution which gives our customers added confidence, and as a result we've seen a marked increase in the size of our Blackberry deployments."

Peter Parker hinted that there are other mobile email solutions - besides RIM's which Neverfail should soon support. He wouldn't say if this involved products available from Visto, Good Technology or possibly even Nokia.

Neverfail's software approach to seamless failover and business continuity means that it can potentially protect virtually any application running on a Microsoft server. Parker refused to be drawn on exactly which product areas his company might target next but hinted that fax software could well be next on the list.

The company is also looking to productise its Scope diagnostic tool which monitors corporate networks looking for potential issues such as out-of-date NIC drivers. A Lite version of the product is available on the web site for customers to use to evaluate Scope's usefulness. µ
