Though Apple's iPad is really the only viable tablet currently on the market, there has been plenty of concern about the security of business apps on the device, and that includes email. That doesn't have to be the case, says IBM, which is offering a free download that lets Lotus Notes customers have secure access to email, calendar, and other other tools on the iPad.
"The iPad is a lot like the iPhone," says Kevin Cavanaugh, vice president of messaging and collaboration at IBM. "I think this is a recognition that at least some folks are looking at using the iPad as a convenient business device. Personally, I'm traveling with an iPad and have been using the [Lotus Notes] software as I travel around. It's been working incredibly well."
Called IBM Lotus Notes Traveler, the apps is available now and enables the viewing of encrypted email both the iPad and iPhone. For those interested, you can download the app from here.
