Mocana, one of the top 100 privately-held technology companies in North America, have released NanoPhone suite for the Android. NanoPhone is the “most comprehensive open standards-based security suite for developers building to the Open Handset Alliance’s Android specifications”. In short, this product tightens Androids loose skin, especially in and around the area of Internet connectivity.

A secure browser and malware/virus protection are just two of the features included in the suite for Android. However, perhaps the most important aspect of the product (especially for enterprise consumers) is the inclusion of a VPN client.

Mocana state that Android has lacked a much-needed firewall, VPN, and encryption features… something we would cautiously agree with given the potential this OS has for the enterprise and business user group. We particular like the claim that this software does not compromise the performance, throughput or battery life of the platform. Music to our ears!
