To a large degree that means managing applications. The new software allows IT departments to require all devices to use mandatory applications, such as virus-protection software, and to ban the launch of blacklisted applications not meeting company guidelines. Good 5 also allows advanced password and encryption management and the temporary lockdown of possibly compromised devices -- rather than a complete shutdown and erase requiring the full reinstalling of software if the device is recovered."</i> <br /><br /><img src="http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/images/Temporale-20070627-Good5.jpg" alt="User submitted image" title="User submitted image"/> <br /><br />Good has stepped things up a notch with their latest release, providing IT departments with more tools to manage the ever increasing mobile work force. I've never used Good Messaging - I did use the Good MP3 player for the Handspring Visor, but that was a long time ago, before Good found their true calling. ;) Anyone here use Good? How do you like it compared to Microsoft's Direct Push?

I just hope they didn't fix the registry hack that allows for disabling the IT Policy that requires passwords.

According to a post over at PPC Thoughts, they did. :(

my company is going to be moving away from Goodlink. It works and works pretty well most of the time..."most" :)

We're going to start using the direct push for simplicity and because I requested it.

It's been causing some issues on both the smartphones and ppc phones lately.
