NetMotion Wireless, a leading provider of mobile productivity and management software, announced today that Mobility XE, a mobile Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution, has been deployed by Amica Mutual Insurance to improve the performance of hundreds of mobile workers for accessing wireless data and applications. Amica Mutual Insurance is a national writer of automobile, homeowner, marine, personal umbrella liability, and life insurance.
"Our field personnel constantly change locations and access multiple applications throughout their day," says Larry Brown, senior systems engineer, Amica Mutual Insurance. "They need reliable wireless connections and continuous, persistent access to data no matter where they are. With NetMotion Wireless we can ensure consistent performance–in and out of networks. NetMotion has also helped streamline our network authentication process when user passwords expire."
NetMotion Wireless software also facilitates comprehensive reporting on the status of a mobile deployment with its Analytics Module. The module monitors the performance of all applications, devices, and users within a mobile deployment and produces pre-configured and fully customizable reports, enabling IT managers to measure the performance of a mobile deployment and proactively implement productivity changes.
"What I find useful in the Analytics Module is being able to see what applications people are using on their Panasonic laptops," says Greg Saugy, network operations specialist. "I can see when they have installed unauthorized software and remind them that this is against our security policies. Often this software is actually impacting performance and they do not even realize it."
