Good's GoodLink Offers Secure Messaging Server

Recently-upgraded version of Good Technology's GoodLink system version 1.5 consists of GoodLink Server implemented in Windows (NT or Windows 2000) environment),  GoodLink application software and its proprietary handheld - the G100 wireless handheld. GoodLink supports RIM's Blackberry, as well. These components provide always-on two-way wireless synchronization between users' e-mail client and the handheld.GoodLink Server that provides compression and encryption functionality. The messages are sent to the company's GoodLink Operation Center using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption. The GoodLink Operation Center then routes the messages to mobile users' handhelds via the Cingular Wireless Mobitex network.

Deployed behind the corporate firewall, GoodLink Server integrates with Microsoft Exchange Server® to provide a secure and highly-reliable wireless connection with users outside the firewall.

MobileInfo Comments and Advisory: GoodLink is fast encroaching upon RIM's territory. It is not got there but moving steadily towards that goal. Predictably, Good has got into trouble with RIM's lawyers - litigation continues. 

We would suggest that customers should evaluate Good's technology if it meets their basic functional requirements (e-mail only to start with), cost objectives (perhaps less expensive than the leader (RIM), current messaging system they employ (Microsoft Exchange only, at this stage) and security (less secure than RIM). But they must do it consciously and deliberately after comparing it with RIM's offering.
