Juniper Systems’ Mesa Rugged Notepad has passed all testing and validation procedures, and is in full integration with the Apriva Authentication Suite. The two companies now can market a solution they say protects government and enterprise customers against data incursions.

The Mesa Rugged Notepad uses the Windows Mobile operating system, and it offers a fairly large screen and as much as 16 hours of battery life. According to security vendor Apriva, its Authentication Suite combines three key components to deliver a secure access environment to the device: the Apriva Reader, a wearable Bluetooth smart-card reader that securely accesses authentication data stored on a Common Access Card (CAC) or other ISO 7816 based ID card; the Apriva Guard that locks down the Mesa Rugged Notepad until proper authentication is achieved through the Apriva Reader; and Apriva CSPware, an AES 256 encryption engine that helps ensure “the highest level of encryption of data transmitted outside the Mesa Rugged Notepad,” it claims.??

“Providing multi-factor user authentication and access is one of the most important — but least understood — aspects of network security. This is particularly true with handheld devices that are designed for use in the field,” notes James Lawrence, Apriva’s vice president/Product Management. “It is critical to ensure that any lost or misplaced device does not allow unauthorized access to sensitive networks or information.”
