Motorola bundles secure comms with Android handset
Encrypted solution aimed at Middle East government agencies
Motorola Solutions Inc today introduced a secure communications tool to markets in the Middle East.
The AME 2000 Secure Mobile Solution, is aimed at government agencies that need secure voice and data communications on a wireless network. AME 2000 is based on Motorola's Assured Mobile Environment (AME) solution, and combines an Android smartphone with additional hardware and software to provide end-to-end encrypted voice and data communications through private or public wireless networks.
"As government executives, intelligence agents and military personnel increasingly adopt commercial devices to perform their missions, it's crucial that the equipment is capable of communicating and accessing sensitive information securely and confidentially," said Mohammad Akhtar, senior vice president, Asia Pacific & Middle East, Motorola.
"AME 2000 integrates a commercial Android smartphone with hardware and software to provide end-to-end encrypted voice and data communications through private or public wireless networks. With AME 2000, government officials will have a smartphone for secure communications from wherever duty calls."
"Motorola Solutions has built a platform that will create a truly global secure solution because it has the ability to comply with a variety of standards and guidelines established by governments around the world," said Osama Shihabi, director of sales, Middle East, Motorola Solutions.
"AME 2000 features a familiar Android-based OS experience and is an affordable mobile solution for government agencies to access secure information over the air. We believe AME 2000 will become the secure mobile solution of choice for governments across the region."
