SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE) -- Jan. 22, 2001 --

Workstyle(TM) Server Becomes The First Enterprise-Based Packaged Application To Achieve RSA SecurID(R) Ready Certification, Enhancing Its Ability To Provide Secure Wireless Access To Key Corporate Data

Wireless Knowledge, Inc., a Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq:MSFT) and QUALCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq:QCOM) company, Monday announced it has joined the RSA Secured(TM) Strategic Partner Program to support
interoperability between its Workstyle Server software and RSA SecurID  authentication technology.

By joining forces with RSA Security, Wireless Knowledge enhances the industry-leading security capabilities of Workstyle, which provides mobile executives with real-time, wireless access to their
organization's existing messaging platform.

As part of the program, Workstyle has been awarded "RSA SecurID Ready" certification, signaling its compatibility with RSA Security's authentication technology. The RSA Secured certification lets organizations know that Workstyle is compatible with RSA Security's products and technologies.

"We are pleased to welcome Wireless Knowledge to the RSA Secured Partner Program," said Robert Pritchard, director of strategic partner development at RSA Security. "Workstyle is the first packaged
m-business application to support our industry-leading wireless authentication standard and creates an ideal fit for Wireless Knowledge's customers who need secure, wireless access to critical
business information."

RSA SecurID authentication software provides a strong two-factor authentication solution for enterprises requiring enhanced authentication security for their mobile employees accessing Workstyle. RSA SecurID software requires the use of both the employee's static password and a dynamically changing code generated by an RSA authenticator that is carried by the user. 

RSA SecurID two-factor authentication software greatly minimizes the risk that mobile employees' authentication credentials will be compromised, thus preventing exposure of corporate data to
unauthorized individuals. Workstyle provides the necessary user interface and backend connections to the RSA ACE/Server, which performs the user authentication.

"Joining the RSA Secured Partner Program affirms our commitment to bringing the industry's most advanced security technologies to our enterprise customers," said Ken Whitaker, vice president of product development for Wireless Knowledge. "As the first company in our category to earn RSA SecurID Ready certification, Wireless Knowledge has further established itself at the leading edge of the wireless data market."

Workstyle Server is an enterprise-grade packaged application that enables mobile workers to access critical information residing on the corporate network. Because it resides behind the firewall, Workstyle
Server delivers secure, real-time wireless access to Microsoft Exchange- and Lotus Domino-based corporate email, calendar, company public address books and personal address books. Mobile employees can access this data through any number of wireless Internet devices -
including mobile phones and PDAs (e.g., Palm and Pocket PC) worldwide, as well as landline PCs such as laptops and kiosks.

In addition to RSA SecurID software support, the product's security features include true end-to-end encryption for wireless devices and gateways that natively support Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
or Transport Layer Security (TLS), two of the most common standards today.
Workstyle uses highly encrypted networking protocols to communicate wirelessly with remote employees, ensuring secure access - even if a device is lost, stolen or broken.
