Motorola Introduces S/MIME Mobile E-mail for Federal Government

Good S/MIME on the MOTO Q(TM) Family Gives the DoD a Secure, Powerful and
Personalized Mobile Computing Solution

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 8 / / - Motorola, Inc.
(NYSE: MOT) today extended its leadership in government mobility with the
introduction of Good Mobile Messaging Secure Multipurpose Internet Mail
Extensions (Good S/MIME). Designed specifically to meet federal government
security policy requirements, Good S/MIME supports the Motorola Q family of
smartphones and gives the Department of Defense (DoD) and associated
government agencies a mobile messaging solution that is more personalized and
easier to manage and administrate than other alternatives.

While DoD agencies such as the Navy, Army, Marine Corps and Air Force are
highly mobile and dependent upon secure, anywhere, anytime access to data to
do their jobs, they have not previously been given options when it comes to
mobile email. With stringent security requirements such as the Homeland
Security Presidential Directive (HSPD 12) which requires the use of Public
Key Infrastructure (PKI), and Department of Defense Directive 8100.2 (DoD
8100.2), which mandates the use of a common access card (CAC) to access mobile
devices and information, few mobile messaging systems meet the federal
government's advanced security requirements. Good S/MIME is compliant with the
mandated standards for public key encryption and signing of e-mail, and with
approval from The Defense Information Security Agency (DISA) has developed a
software technical implementation guide (STIG) to enable DoD agencies to begin
deploying Good S/MIME immediately.

"For years, CIOs in the DoD have been asking for a secure mobile messaging
solution that allows them to take advantage of the newest Windows Mobile
devices and extends them more of the customizability of their desktop while
they are mobile," said Charles Kriete, President and CEO, OTBT, Inc., the
leading wireless communications distributor to the Federal Government sales
channel. "Good S/MIME together with the MOTO Q family of devices meets the
federal government's strictest security requirements and delivers a killer
user experience that truly rivals a desktop or laptop--on powerful, sleek 3G
and 2.5G devices."

Superior User Experience with Common Access Card Integration
Good S/MIME works with the Motorola Q family of smartphones, Bluetooth(R)
CAC-readers and standard DoD-issued common access cards to seamlessly secure
CAC communication, sign and encrypt emails and attachments, and deliver a
superior user experience featuring:
o Automatic signing and encrypting of attachments, including Word, Excel,
PowerPoint and PDF documents and pictures, for greater productivity and
maximum security
o 3-click CAC pairing provides a simple and efficient process for end
users to pair their CAC readers to their smartphones and minimizes
deployment costs for IT
o Automatic over-the-air synchronization of all certificates delivers
cable-free access to all certificates, including Personal Contacts,
rather than just those stored in the corporate directory (GAL and
LDAP), for easier, more efficient communication that does not require
the use of a cable

Personalized, Productive and Secure Mobile E-Mail
Good S/MIME includes all of the new features of the recently introduced
Good Mobile Messaging 5 (Good 5) software and service. Using Good S/MIME with
the MOTO Q family of devices, DoD users get a fully integrated mobile RSS
reader and subscription manager, the ability to group and sort emails by
conversation threads, the ability to customize priority mail with personalized
notifications, and complete calendaring capabilities, including real-time
free-busy visibility and conference room look-up. In addition, Good S/MIME
provides IT managers with ultimate control through advanced security and
management capabilities including a web-based monitoring portal for real-time
handheld fleet visibility, a mandatory application checker, application
blacklisting, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, SD-card and camera lock-down, and SD-card and
database encryption, all through a single management console with complete
over-the-air controls.

"There has been a void in mobile email solutions for the federal
government, where security has come at the price of a poor mobile experience
and manageability headaches," said Sue Forbes, Senior Director Product
management and Marketing, Motorola Enterprise Mobility Business. "With Good
Mobile Messaging S/MIME, we've eliminated the compromises. Users can now be as
productive on their handsets as they are with their laptops and enjoy a
personalized mobile experience, while IT can ensure the highest level of
security to comply with government directives."

Good Mobile Messaging S/MIME Edition is available now through certified
value-added resellers and directly through Motorola. The software and service
will support the Motorola Q family of smartphones running on Microsoft
