The move supports Motorolas strategy to provide enterprises with strong, efficient security that is transparent to end users.
Today, enterprises wishing to extend their applications to a mobile workforce are faced with the challenge of providing secure transport that is easy to use and integrates into existing IT infrastructure. This agreement addresses that challenge and enables Motorola to offer an integrated mobile solution to enterprise users. For over 15 years, Certicom has focused on developing and providing efficient security technologies. This expertise has resulted in a wireless VPN client that is one-tenth the size of desktop versions but with equivalent functionality. movianVPN supports leading gateways, including those from Cisco, Netscreen and Nortel. In addition to Motorola, several other leading handset makers have recognized this expertise and use Certicom security with their handsets. movianVPN will ship within the A760 phone which initially will be sold to the Asian market. According to the U.K. research firm Ovum, nine million smartphone units will be sold worldwide in 2003; 132 million by 2007. movianVPN is an award-winning VPN client that provides secure wireless access to corporate network resources. movianVPN is based on the IPSec standard and works with leading VPN gateways, handheld devices and wireless networks. Certicoms experience with security for constrained environments and Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC), a computationally efficient public key technology, ensures that movianVPN has negligible impact on performance or battery life. movianVPN is part of the movian suite of wireless security applications that enables users to confidently extend wireless communications across their organizations.
