MONTREAL, July 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile Innovations Corp. CEO Gary Bauer today announced the 112th Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police Conference and Expo 2017 as the venue for the upcoming release of his company's new secure mobile RMS / CPIC data solution — the MPA Niche 3.0 suite of law enforcement apps with industry-first Two-Factor Authentication for Android and iPhone. MPA Niche also features law enforcement apps for GPS tagging and location look-up, various forms and reports including street check, intel submit, witness statement, and an electronic pocket notebook.
Two-Factor Authentication enables users to access data on their smartphones when two factors of authentication are provided. It is an extra layer of security for officers, designed to ensure they are the only persons who can access their accounts, even if someone else knows their password. Canadian Law Enforcement policy requires all National records or Police data be accessed only if protected by 2-factor challenge/response authentication.
In Canada and many other countries, Two-Factor Authentication is required by strict government privacy laws and regulations like NIST SP800-157, which have been put in place for protecting confidential and personal RMS and CPIC information on mobile devices. Mobile Innovations integrates Entrust Datacard and Gemalto SafeNet with access to Niche RMS data and other policing apps providing the mandated data protection — previously available only with the discontinued Blackberry Smartcard reader, a PC or a ruggedized laptop. Mobile Innovations is the only company with a viable, device-agnostic, Two-Factor protected 'total mobile policing' solution.
MPA's secure access to Niche RMS, CPIC and MTO/PARIS data, as well as a well-rounded family of law enforcement apps literally puts the sum of police knowledge at the officer's fingertips. Police records and confidential data can be accessed, created, sent, checked, and backed up securely by the officer in the field. A robust back office suite and the ability to carry out basic work functions offline round out the MPA Niche offering.
Mobile Innovations Corp. CEO Gary Bauer — known for his work with Blackberry's 2-Factor solution — says that his company's new, NIST-compliant MPA Niche offering fills a significant void in the mobile policing marketplace. "Secure and encrypted mobile communications used to mean having a Blackberry phone and a Blackberry smart card reader. For the last four years after Blackberry smart cards readers disappeared, no viable mobile alternative has been available. Ours is first out of the gate; MPA Niche is the first secure mobile RMS data solution that is really complete, and completely device-agnostic."
"With CACP 2017's theme of Policing in a Digital Society, and the special emphasis on security, the 112th Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police 2017 Conference and Expo is the perfect setting to showcase the power of MPA Niche 3.0 on any Android or iPhone. We invite all attendees to visit us at our booth at the Palais des Congrès to see how MPA Niche 3.0 can change the way your mobile officers can work faster and safer with better knowledge, when they need it most."
