ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- IACP – The Motorola Solutions business of Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today introduced two Service Automation solutions for ASTRO 25 radio systems that are designed to efficiently and cost-effectively provide better security for communication systems.

KEY FACTS

  • Service Automation is a means to reduce cycle time and costs associated with the required staging, maintenance and upgrade phases of a communication system's lifecycle.
  • Seamless Password Management uses encryption and Motorola's secure Service Automation infrastructure to periodically change passwords throughout the system for compliancy and security purposes.
  • It provides a more secure system with less risk by mitigating threats that are associated with some static passwords and accelerates system troubleshooting and resolution by preventing equipment lockout due to misplaced, forgotten, or expired credentials.
  • Solution seamlessly delivers central password management, consisting of credential storage, change control, and tracking, while also providing a single point of contact through the Motorola System Support Center for system password needs.
  • Automated Patch Management automatically delivers required software patches and updates at regular intervals to increase security throughout network components and help ensure continuity of operations across the entire network.
  • The automated approach helps improve operational efficiency, minimizes risks of attacks, allows better use of technical resources, and reduces total cost of ownership.
  • The patch solution also enables remote fixes and helps improve network stability and uptime, resulting in higher service levels and service quality.
  • Both services can help customers adhere to government Information Assurance requirements and compliance mandates.

Password Management and Automated Patch Management are among the Motorola Next Generation Public Safety solutions being featured in Motorola Booth #2947 at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference through Oct. 26 in Orlando.
