Motorola unveiled its MOTOPRO Mobility Suite, a software package designed to make it easier for enterprise CIOs to secure and manage business operations, and improve mobile worker productivity.

The company says the integrated software framework enables rapid development and deployment of enterprise-wide mobile applications, with full integration to existing information systems.

“Enterprise CIOs need an integrated approach to securing and managing the rapidly growing population of mobile devices accessing corporate information systems,” said Motorola’s John DeFeo, corporate vice president, Enterprise Products. “They also want the ability to leverage existing tools and technology to help achieve a rapid return on investment.”

MOTOPRO offers device-level intrusion protection, user authentication and authorization, data encryption and secure network access control. Comprehensive management of mobile devices is enabled through the platform, with key features including device provisioning, configuration management, backup and restore, and diagnostics.

The Mobility Suite takes a web services-based approach to integrating and mobilizing business applications such as Customer Relationship Management, Sales Force Automation and Executive Information Systems, supporting both online and offline processing modes.

“With the introduction of the Mobility Suite, Motorola is taking enterprise mobility from opportunistic, point-based solutions to an architected approach that delivers flexible, scalable and integrated enterprise mobility,” said DeFeo.

The Mobility Suite will be commercially available this summer. At nearly the same time, Motorola has added the HC700-G to its series of MOTOPRO handheld computers, designed to work seamlessly with the Mobility Suite.

“The HC700-G provides mobile workers with real-time access to enterprise applications, increasing their productivity and performance at the point of activity,” said Julie Johnson, director of ruggedized computing solutions, Motorola Enterprise Mobility Solutions.

“Coupled with the Mobility Suite platform and integrated real-time collaboration capabilities, the HC700 series devices become powerful mobile communications tools for enterprise field users across all industries and job functions,” said Johnson.
