Protects communications system users from outside threats
The Motorola Solutions business of Motorola has unveiled two new service automation offerings for ASTRO 25 radio systems, to provide security for communication systems.
The company said the new offerings reduce cycle time and costs associated with the required staging, maintenance and upgrade phases of a communication system’s lifecycle.
The security offering includes password management that uses encryption and Motorola’s secure service automation infrastructure to periodically change passwords throughout the system for compliancy and security purposes.
It also allows central password management through credential storage, change control, and tracking, to provide a single point of contact through the company’s System Support Center for system password needs.
The security offering also features an automated patch management which delivers required software patches and updates at regular intervals to increase security throughout network components and ensure continuity of operations across the entire network.
Motorola Solutions systems integration and services vice president Tony Marshall said maintaining a secure ASTRO 25 network and complying with strict information assurance requirements can be a challenge for public safety customers who need to mitigate the risk of threats and vulnerabilities to maintain effective control of their system operations.
"Motorola’s password management and automated patch management services ensure the security and reliability of customers’ networks as they also lower the costs of planning, designing, deploying, integrating, securing, maintaining and managing their networks," Marshall said.
