WASHINGTON -- February 12, 2013

Federal agencies that need secure voice and data communications on a wireless
network now have a powerful new weapon in their arsenal: the AME 2000 Secure
Mobile Solution from Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI), a leading provider
of mission-critical communications solutions and services for enterprise and
government customers. It is based on Motorola’s Assured Mobile Environment
(AME) solution, which combines a commercial-off-the shelf (COTS) device with
hardware and software to provide end-to-end encrypted voice and data
communications through private or public wireless networks to support the
missions of federal agencies. The AME 2000 features a smartphone with an
Android™-based operating system.

KEY FACTS

  *Using a COTS smartphone with an Android-based operating system, the AME
    2000 provides a familiar, user-friendly experience.
  *End-to-end AES 256/NSA Suite B encrypted voice services and messaging are
    capable between AME-equipped devices.
  *A Suite B IPSec Virtual Private Network (VPN) provides secure
    data-in-transit between a mobile device and a customer enterprise through
    private and public broadband networks, including GSM, 3G, 4G LTE and
    Wi-Fi.
  *The AME 2000 supports the use of customer-installed applications, such as
    graphic information system mapping and video and remote medical
    monitoring. It also includes a browser and applications for email, text
    messaging and contacts.
  *The AME 2000 implements government-sponsored security recommendations from
    Security Enhanced Android (SEAndroid) to provide enhanced security policy
    controls through assured pipelines so processes cannot be bypassed or
    hijacked by flawed or malicious applications.
  *The Motorola CRYPTR micro, a hardware security module in a microSD™ form
    factor that meets FIPS 140-2 Level 3 and Suite B standards, provides the
    AME 2000 with tamper protection for keys, tokens and certificates, and
    performs high-assurance cryptographic operations.
  *Integrated mobile device management allows over-the-air (OTA) installation
    and updating of applications as well as device integrity verification. For
    additional protection, encryption keys can be erased remotely on devices
    that are lost or compromised.
  *Android-based software powers hundreds of millions of mobile devices in
    more than 190 countries around the world. It is the largest installed base
    of any mobile operating system.
