SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- NetMotion Wireless, provider of software to secure, manage and optimize an organization's mobile data deployment, today announced its Mobility XE mobile VPN has won the Fierce Innovation Award in the Device and Network Security category and its Locality cellular network performance management software was recognized as a finalist in the Test and Measurement category. Judges selected the company's solutions after evaluating their technology innovation, financial impact, market validation and end-user customer experience. The Fierce Innovation Awards are an operator-reviewed awards program from the publishers of FierceWireless, FierceTelecom and FierceCable.

"No enterprise would tolerate frequent network access interruptions for employees in a traditional office setting because of the threat to productivity and efficiency, yet that's what's going on in many field deployments today," said Bob Hunsberger, president and CEO of NetMotion Wireless. "Our superior approach to maintaining and monitoring connections in unpredictable wireless environments has led to more than 2,000 customer installations. We're thrilled to be recognized by operators for helping users overcome the technical challenges of staying connected and making it possible to troubleshoot performance issues with real-world data."

Mobility XE and Locality were selected by an exclusive panel of carrier-only judges, including Stephen Bye, CTO and VP of Technology Development and Strategy at Sprint; Mattias Fridstrom, VP and Head of Technology at TeliaSonera International; Abhi Ingle, VP of Ecosystem and Innovation at AT&T; Tom Nagel, SVP of Business Development and Strategy for Communications and Data Services at Comcast Cable; Todd Smith, Director of Media Relations at Cox Communications; and Jim Wales, Executive Director of Networks at Verizon.

Mobility XE is client/server software specifically built for wireless environments. It boosts employee productivity by ensuring that work isn't halted by lost connections or by moving from one network to another. Mobility XE prevents field workers, such as those at Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative (SMECO) from having to reconnect with their VPN, re-start applications or be distracted from the task at hand. Watch the SMECO video case study online to learn how their mobile workforce uses Mobility XE to serve the organization's 150,000 customers.

Locality software serves a vital function for organizations that rely heavily on public cellular networks to connect their mobile field workers to mission-critical applications and information. Its detailed technology performance reports help IT staff expose poor network performance and chronic connectivity problems related to signal strength, location, network saturation, older network technologies, devices, drivers and more. Locality is proven to optimize investments in technology and service contracts while boosting field worker and IT staff productivity.
