LogMeIn will enable Storm users to manage passwords and log into multiple different machines securely; it will let users access folders and files; and it will allow users to see what machines are online or offline.
According to LogMeIn, the software uses 256-bit SSL encryption to make sure the connection is secure.
In a prepared statement, Kevin Farrell, vice president and general manager, Digital Living at LogMeIn, said, "BlackBerry smartphone users are accustomed to being productive while on-the-go; LogMeIn extends users' mobility by making their office and home computers fully accessible from their smartphone. Ignition will be optimized for use with the BlackBerry Storm and make it easy for anyone to carry the power of their computer with them virtually anywhere-without the weight."
The software is currently in beta and will be available later this year. A separate desktop client is required to make the remote log-in capabilities work.
