Orange County Sheriff's Department Turns to NetMotion Wireless for Mobile Communications

Orange County Sheriff's Department Turns to NetMotion Wireless for Mobile Communications

Net Motion Wireless, a leading provider of mobile productivity and management software, today announced that the Orange County Sheriff's Department Investigations Division (OCSD) has deployed NetMotion's Mobile Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution to support its police officers and investigators in the field. NetMotion's software, Mobility XE, boosts mobile productivity by maintaining and optimizing connections to applications as users move in and out of wireless coverage areas and across various networks.

"Our Sheriff's Department covers an extremely large area, and we need to ensure that our officers and investigators can access our dispatching system, state and federal criminal databases, and other key applications wherever they might be," said Ed Lee, project manager for OCSD's Information Systems. "Most of the applications we use require a connection to the server, so they become useless when an officer loses their wireless connection. We turned to NetMotion to solve this problem, so our officers can focus on their jobs, not on the technology."

Orange County Sheriff's Department Investigations Division is responsible for solving some of the most serious crimes in Orange County, California, an area that includes Anaheim, Buena Park, Orange, Santa Ana, The Canyons, Tustin, and Yorba Linda. OCSD joins a number of law enforcement and government agencies across the country that rely on Mobility XE to mitigate some of the most common challenges in mobile deployments today, including end-to-end security, application stability, and seamless roaming between Wi-Fi and wide-area cellular networks. Additionally, NetMotion optimizes wireless performance and automatically connects users to the fastest available network.

"In OCSD's high-demand environment, it's essential that their wireless data transmissions are secure, and that officers have access to critical information from anywhere in the field," said Tom Johnston, senior vice president of products and marketing, NetMotion Wireless. "Our Mobile VPN increases productivity, giving OCSD more reliable data and application connections, even between networks and outside wireless coverage areas."

NetMotion's Mobility XE integrates end-to-end AES encryption to secure all data transmitted across the wireless networks. Its encryption libraries are FIPS 140-2 validated, meeting the industry's highest security standards for protecting data transmitted to and from mobile devices. Mobility XE also empowers IT administrators with a system-wide view of device activity, including application use, device connections and battery life. With Mobility XE, administrators can customize policies to better manage application and network access, quarantine lost or stolen devices, and prioritize bandwidth for critical transmissions and applications.

In addition to OCSD, other state and local law enforcement and public safety offices that use NetMotion Wireless include the Los Angeles Police Department, Santa Barbara County, the Texas Department of Public Safety, the State of Washington, the City of Las Vegas, the State of Illinois, the Florida Highway Patrol, Fairfax Country Police Department, the State of Connecticut, and hundreds of others worldwide.
