Telex: Microsoft launches a lighter Outlook app, Apple Pay will get rid of Safari, Netskope buys Infiot

– Microsoft launches a lightweight Outlook app. For entry-level Android smartphones and in regions with poor connectivity, the Redmond company has launched a lighter version of its messaging application (5 MB against 80 MB for the classic version). The app is currently available in select countries including Saudi Arabia, Argentina, South Africa, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, India, Mexico, Peru, Taiwan , Thailand, Turkey and Venezuela. Outlook Lite can be run on devices with less than 1GB of RAM and 2G or 3G network connectivity. Microsoft specifies that the application is also optimized to consume less battery.

– Apple Pay will get rid of Safari. In a beta version of iOS 16, clues suggest that Apple’s payment solution may no longer work only on its browser. In the coming months, users of Chrome or Firefox should benefit from it. This discovery was made by Steve Moser, contributor at MacRumours, where he saw “order with Apple Pay” buttons appear on certain sites like Apple.com from a browser other than Safari.

– Netskope acquires Infiot. And two. In a few months, Netskope, a specialist in CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker) and which has evolved into SASE, announced the acquisition of the start-up Infiot for an undisclosed sum. Founded in 2018 in California, it offers an edge network security and zero trust platform. Its expertise will be integrated into Netskope’s Borderless WAN offer. For the record, the latter bought last June Wootcloud, a company specializing in the application of zero trust principles to the security of the Internet of Things (IoT).
