SEATTLE and MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — APCO International Booth #1806 — NetMotion Wireless, provider of software to secure, manage and optimize an organization’s mobile deployments, today announced Mobility XE is deployed by more government organizations than any other mobile VPN. More than 300,000 state and local government users in all 50 states rely on Mobility XE for secure, persistent access to mission-critical applications. This includes more than 50,000 in the top ten metropolitan markets. The company also announced new customer Washington State Patrol will replace a decades-old, in-house mobile communications network with a modern Mobile Office Platform using Mobility XE as its network connection.

“Our Mobile Office Platform improves trooper and public safety, makes troopers more efficient and will help us clear roadways more quickly,” said Tom Wallace, director of the Washington State Patrol’s Information Technology Division. “By shaving just ten minutes off a collision investigation we reduce the lingering backup by more than an hour. That will have a huge positive effect on both public convenience and freight mobility.”

Nearly seventy percent of all U.S. state troopers use NetMotion Wireless to maintain and secure their data connections as they move in and out of wireless coverage areas and roam between networks. For organizations, including the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and Iowa State Patrol, Mobility XE ensures a reliable mobile data connection for troopers as they travel across vast jurisdictions and require urgent access to mission-critical systems and applications from the computers in their vehicles.

“Our market share leadership is a testament to the quality of Mobility XE and our ability to deliver next generation features to customers,” said Bob Hunsberger, CEO, NetMotion Wireless. “We remain committed to serving our customers’ needs and meeting their mission critical requirements better than anyone else. Our team is proud to provide such a key technology to the men and women that serve and protect our nation’s communities.”

Mobility XE is client/server software specifically built for wireless environments. It boosts employee productivity by ensuring that work isn’t interrupted by lost connections or by moving from one network to another. It prevents workers, such as those at San Diego County, from having to reconnect with their VPN, re-start applications or be distracted from the business at hand.

Deployed in as little as a couple of hours, Mobility XE provides IT managers with the security and centralized control needed to effectively monitor and manage mobile deployments of any size. In July, NetMotion Wireless announced seamless roaming between IPv4 and IPv6 networks, enhanced security through the industry’s first support of NSA Suite B encryption in a mobile VPN, and an improved Analytics reporting module for easier mobile VPN troubleshooting.
