Siebel Systems provides a suite of mobile solutions that allow remote access to data within Siebel Business Applications. These solutions support a variety of mobile platforms, including wireless phones, handhelds, and laptop computers (running Siebel Mobile Web Client).
Siebel Wireless provides real-time wireless access to Siebel Business Applications through browser-enabled mobile devices. Siebel Wireless views rendered in XML or HTML are sent through the Siebel-supported Web server to a wireless network and ultimately to the requestor's browser-enabled wireless device.
In this enterprise solution, the Web server and the Siebel Server reside within the firewall of the Siebel customer, thereby protecting data security. Standard protocols are used to secure browser-based data transmissions across the wireless network.
Mobile devices themselves must be secure. If a wireless or handheld device falls into the wrong hands, organizations need assurance that sensitive data will not be compromised. Siebel Business Applications are fully compatible with the embedded security within these devices, as authentication is generally a device-level decision, rather than an application-specific one.
