WideFly PDA is designed with security in mind starting from scratch.

System Integrators and ISV (Independent Software Vendor) no longer need to worry about changes of application & system configurations by unauthorized persons. 

Security policies can be enforced such that sensitive transaction and personal data in PDA cannot be retrieved, stolen & misused by external parties.  Standardization of wireless and application security can be implemented easily.

End user operates WideFly PDA like a dedicated working terminal instead of a consumer PDA, i.e. no games, music, movie, personal software or other inappropriate programs which may jeopardize system stability and reduce workforce's productivity.

Wireless Security
    Single SSID
  • A rock solid feature guarantees 100% Wi-Fi connection to one-and-only-one designated SSID
  • For large scale multiple access points environment, single SSID is maintained in roaming
  • No more popup of neighbor wireless networks
  • Ends the Wi-Fi connection chaos commonly found in consumer PDAs
   Industry Wi-Fi Security
  • Incorporated in Microsoft Windows CE 5.0, most industry Wi-Fi security standards are provided
  • OPEN/WEP, Shared/WEP, WPA-PSK/TKIP, WPA-PSK/WEP & etc
Application Security
   Configurations Hardened
  • With inbuilt Admin & User mode, only administrator (with authorized password) is allowed to change system settings, e.g. IP Address, SSID/Password, roaming settings & etc
  • Once configurations are frozen, they are completely intact in user mode
   Application Environment Protection Only administrator has the right to:
  • Install applications and system components
  • Configure application shortcuts so that only POS application can be seen
   Installation Restriction In user mode:
  • Installation of unauthorized and unapproved programs, that may impose security and reliability issue, are completely prohibited
  • Modified at system driver level, standard PDA installation capability via ActiveSync is removed
Data Security
   File & Data Access In user mode:
  • No File Manager is provided for direct access to files & data
  • Application that requires temporary storage of transactional (e.g. credit card payments) and personal data (e.g. membership info) in PDA flash memory is strictly protected
  • No copy of flash memory files and database are allowed
   Card Data Protection The clear text based magstripe card reader (MSR) commonly available in POS market exposes security threat to data theft and misuse.  PDA user is able to capture the data by small utility program easily, e.g. Notepad, Word & etc.

With WideFly's integrated MSR, card data security policy can be enforced:
  • Enhanced at system driver and firmware/hardware level, credit card data captured by the MSR is fully encrypted.
  • Only licensed application developers are able to decrypt the card information
Theft & Loss
    Theft
  • WideFly's PDA, in contrast to consumer PDAs, prohibits installation of personal functionalities such as music, movie, games & entertainment and thus by nature is less prone to petty theft
