NetMotion Wireless Enhances Mobile Virtual Private Network

By PRESS RELEASE — June 30, 2009

Seattle, WA -- NetMotion Wireless, a leading provider of mobile productivity and management software, released version 8.51 of Mobility XE, the company's award-winning Mobile Virtual Private Network (VPN) software.

The new version now supports the use of character sets commonly used in French, German, Italian, Spanish, and most other European languages. This enhancement means that IT administrators and end users can use their native language characters for specifying user names, passwords, resources, and rule sets. The new version of Mobility XE also provides support for Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and 2005 SP3.

International Features

NetMotion's core client-server software, Mobility XE, enables mobile workers to maintain secure connections to applications as they move through wireless coverage gaps and across various networks. Used by more than 1,500 business and agencies, NetMotion Wireless' software works across Windows-based laptops and mobile devices. Today's international feature enhancement follows NetMotion's recent expansion into Europe and formation of new European subsidiaries.

"Many European languages include characters that are not supported by the basic English character set and most products built for the United States market ignore this fact or deal with it poorly," said Pam Cory, vice president of marketing, NetMotion Wireless. "The new Mobility XE allows IT managers and mobile workers outside the U.S. to use the same character set they use every day. We're committed to serving the European market, and we believe this new product enhancement will better serve business and government agencies looking for a best-in-class Mobile VPN solution."

The updated Mobility XE now supports more than 30 languages:

English (U.S. and modern British)
Irish (new orthography)
Kurdish (the Kurdish Unified Alphabet)
Latin (basic classical orthography)
Luxembourgish (basic classical orthography)
Portuguese (Portuguese and Brazilian)
Scottish Gaelic

Analytics and SQL Server Support

NetMotion software also facilitates comprehensive reporting on the status of a mobile deployment with its new Mobile Analytics module. The Mobile Analytics module monitors the performance of all individual applications, devices and users within a mobile deployment with more than 20 pre-configured and fully customizable reports, enabling IT managers to measure the performance of a mobile deployment and proactively implement productivity changes, where necessary. The software allows network managers to set thresholds for problems with servers, individual users, or devices, and to receive notifications before critical problems develop, dramatically decreasing help desk calls.

Customers who upgrade to NetMotion Mobility XE 8.51 can now leverage the power of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 or 2005 SP3 in conjunction with the new analytics module to proactively manage their mobile deployment as a business asset. This adds to the wide range of server-side support for Mobility XE.
Around the globe, more than 350,000 mobile workers use NetMotion's Mobility XE to mitigate some of the most common challenges in mobile deployments today, including application stability as users move in and out of wireless coverage areas, and seamless roaming between Wi-Fi and wide-area cellular networks. In addition, the company provides advanced security and network management controls that extend corporate security policies to mobile devices, while also allowing customers to utilize their existing mobile investments to reliably deploy real-time applications such as Voice over IP (VoIP) and streaming video.
