Secure email coming for iPhone

Sybase has developed and will start selling software that lets businesses securely distribute e-mail to the iPhone.

The software will let workers use the iPhone to access their e-mail with the same security safeguards that are currently available in products for use on Treo smartphones from and Research in Motion’s BlackBerry.

Sybase is also working on similar software for Android, a new smartphone platform that Google is developing with dozens of other companies.
