Netmotion software is a VPN or piece of software on the device which controls

Could someone help me to clarify this?
I understand that the NetMotion increases the productivity of remote workers by providing persistence, perfomance, etc. The NetMotion is defined as a VPN software. I would like to understand what kind of VPN it is. The VPN connects end users to the corporate network to access corporate resources. Does NetMotion connects end users to corporate network? Or it is just a piece of software on the endpoint which tracks/controls all activity on the device regardless of it is in the corporate network or public network?

What I am basically trying to understand is that NetMotion is a VPN software that connects the users to corporate network in addition to all the security features? Or it is just a client software which controls all activity on the device according to the policy in which case we may need a separate VPN(cisco AnyConnect, Global protect) to connect to corporate network.

    Sorry it looks like there haven't been any answers to this yet!  Technically NetMotion Software is both!  Works as a traditional VPN that connects users back to corporate networks, but also gives you the ability to have policies/analytics on each device.  Happy to help answer any other questions you might have!

Employee Experience in a Tight Labor Market

NetMotion recently conducted a study to learn what frustrates a specific group of employees – the mobile workforce. Although the issues they flagged didn’t surprise us, we did discover that most of these issues could be resolved (or at least improved) without much effort from the organization. If your employees are having trouble connecting to the company intranet, find a way to fix it. If they’re spending way too much time authenticating, inputting repetitive data, or talking to the helpdesk, get better or more reliable tools. Do remote employees feel disconnected? Invest in unified communications tools that everyone is willing to use.

Mobility and the Financial Services Workforce

"Financial services are not so different from other industries in that an increasing number of employees require around-the-clock access to corporate IT services via mobile devices. As the always-connected, always-on smartphone generation continues to enter the workforce, financial services organisations find themselves needing to offer more flexible work environments to stay competitive. Many millennials in the industry have reported frustration and a general dissatisfaction with the devices and applications available to them, remarking that they want more freedom to use mobile devices.

But this industry leads lags behind others in the adoption of mobile technologies for its workforce. The regulatory environment doesn’t help with IT leaders facing risk management, compliance pressures amongst others. And it’s not just compliance – financial services face numerous security and data protection concerns; data breaches are very costly in this industry, not only directly but also due to the loss of goodwill and new customers. Also, legacy platforms and applications mean that fewer companies here have integrated mobile applications with legacy back-office systems."

What is a mesh network?

A mesh network is a type of local network in which the individual devices (called nodes) within the infrastructure connect directly, dynamically and non-hierarchically to as many other nodes as possible and cooperate with one another to create one virtual network that can efficiently route data between clients.

A normal mesh network may contain several different routers, bridges, switches and other devices that operate as nodes. Typically, one node acts as a gateway and connects directly to the main network asset (such as a server or the Internet); then, each additional node talks to one other and expands the wireless coverage. So while only one node is physically connected to the external resource, every node is able to send data back and forth at equal speeds.

Mesh networks are appealing to large enterprises because they are highly scalable and the network connection can be spread out among dozens or even hundreds of wireless mesh nodes, allowing the network connection to be shared across a large area.

Is your data going where it should be?

The age of the app is well and truly upon us. It feels like a very long time ago now that Apple was first pushing its app for that message, and today, barely a second thought is given to downloading the latest app from the iOS or Android app store. But what does that mean for mobile data security?

Most of us are reasonably well versed in what to look out for when it comes to bad apps. Dodgy looking icons, suspicious imagery and inaccurate names are all big signals that the app listing in question is not quite the real deal. Fake versions of Fortnite, for example, are rife on the Play Store – a phenomenon regularly seen whenever a new app soars to the top of the popularity list.

The security savvy will also be wary of apps made available outside of official channels. Switching off third party downloads and being extremely careful when installing APK files are widely accepted best practices for mobile security.

For businesses, adopting a Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) tool will keep users safe from these kinds of threats. Yet there’s something potentially even more scary to be aware of.

NetMotion Takes to the Skies… with a TOUGHBOOK and Teams

At NetMotion, we like to push boundaries and constantly take ourselves outside of our comfort zone. We also like to test our technology in extreme environments, which is why we decided to test the limits of connectivity yet again, by launching a connected device into space.

This time however, instead of testing our connectivity using Skype on an iPad, we tapped our good partners at Panasonic and Microsoft for a TOUGHBOOK running a Microsoft Teams call. We also switched up the location, so instead of the wide-open spaces of a Nevada desert, we took a quick hop across the pond and ventured out to the rolling hills of the beautiful English countryside.

There’s no fun without a bit of risk and for us it was all about whether the connection would actually work. Would we see the same results? Would NetMotion be able to harness and protect the TOUGHBOOK’s connection, and maintain the Teams call? Would the balloon get as high as it had in Nevada?

TL:DR: Thanks to our partners Panasonic, Microsoft and our joint customer Centrica (also known as British Gas), the launch was a whopping success.

NetMotion Opens Victoria Office

Opening a new office, in and of itself, isn’t necessarily a good thing. Downsizing is common, as is moving from a premium location to somewhere further outside of town. There are even a growing number of companies dramatically reducing office space or abandoning assigned seating at the office in a bid to encourage more remote working. If only there were some kind of funky technology that improves the whole experience for remote workers, huh?

NetMotion’s upgrade in Victoria, however, is an unmistakably positive move. In 2018, when we decided to first establish a presence less than 50 miles north of our Seattle HQ, it was just a single person (albeit a very talented one) added to the engineering team. Fast forward to Q4 and that number had grown to four, including the arrival of yours truly from the similarly mild climes of the UK. Quite quickly we realized that although our shared office location meant we all worked together in theory, its disjointed floorplan wasn’t fit for purpose. Within the space of a year we were in need of a bigger and more cohesive working space.

That’s why it was so exciting when this Summer we finally moved into a stunning new central downtown Victoria office. With room for up to 30 people, this was a strategic decision to accommodate growth, meaning there’s currently plenty of space for an impromptu cat-swinging session, should one of my colleagues so desire (folks: please don’t).

The Device-Agnostic Enterprise VPN

If we zoom out now to the enterprise level, deploying a VPN offers many advantages for the mobile workforce and the IT teams that support them. A mobile VPN or software-defined perimeter (SDP) can deliver features such as data encryption, data compression, and application session persistence. The IT team also gains an incredible amount of visibility and control over what’s happening, via active diagnostics, troubleshooting, and analytics as well as powerful policy management tools.

That’s where we come in. NetMotion’s device-agnostic enterprise VPN makes it easy for any organization to securely connect (essentially) any modern phone, tablet or laptop to the available Wi-Fi or cellular network. Better yet, it can be deployed by the IT team and remain completely invisible to the user.

NetMotion Diagnostics® v4.70 is Here

NetMotion Diagnostics v4.70 is now available. This latest version of our powerful delivers a raft of upgrades and stability improvements as well as support for the latest smartphone operating systems, Android 10 and iOS 13.

Why is this v4.70 update important?

In addition to giving IT teams real-time access to what’s happening in the field, Diagnostics is a critical tool for finding and diagnosing issues on those mobile devices. Troubleshooting problems with mobile devices has always been a notoriously difficult and time-consuming problem for IT teams, particularly when they had no visibility outside the corporate firewall.

NetMotion Diagnostics reveals the root cause of connectivity-related issues, whether they are on the mobile device itself, on corporate servers or any of the private or public networks being used. This helps to dramatically speed up MTTR and keeps our mobile workforce productive.

Existing customers can download Diagnostics v4.70 using the NetMotion customer portal, or by going to the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
