Seattle, Wash. - Nov. 24, 2008 - NetMotion Wireless, a leading provider of mobile productivity and management software, today announced that TELUS Mobility, a leading wireless service provider in Canada, will now offer Mobile VPN Plus using NetMotion's flagship product, Mobility XE, through TELUS' business sales channels as a new monthly subscription offer. NetMotion's Mobile VPN (Virtual Private Network), Mobility XE, enables mobile workers to maintain secure connections to applications as they move through wireless coverage gaps and across various networks.

"Companies and government agencies throughout Canada have mobile field workers that need secure and consistent wireless access to information in order to perform their jobs efficiently," said Bob Hunsberger, President and CEO of NetMotion Wireless. "TELUS is at the forefront of providing their customers with advanced wireless services, and we're very pleased to work with them to enhance mobile productivity for these major accounts."

Jim Senko, TELUS vice-president of Mobility Solutions said, "Mobile VPN Plus is an ideal offering for organizations across multiple industries, including: public safety, utilities, healthcare, communications, government, transportation and many others. These organizations often deploy large quantities of laptops and smartphones to highly-mobile field personnel, and they can benefit greatly from a VPN designed specifically for wireless environments with centralized software tools to manage their devices."

Pricing varies based on the size of the mobile deployment.
