Certicom announced that Motorola has embedded movianVPN into its A760 smartphone, a Linux based 3G smartphone. The movianVPN software will ship within the A760 phone which initially will be sold to the Asian market.
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.
"We've been turning to Certicom for our security needs for a number of years. They are security specialists who understand the needs and complexities of adding security to constrained environments," said Samuel Li, Director Product Line Management for Motorola's GSM High Tier SmartPhone Product Group. "We're pleased to be expanding our relationship with Certicom. The security built into our new phone is transparent to users yet it enables them to access critical information and applications on their enterprise networks without concern for security risks." Motorola has been working with Certicom since 1996 as both a customer and partner.
The VPN client 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. Certicom's 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.
