This press release was issued by Motorola Solutions Enterprise business prior to its acquisition by Zebra Technologies on Oct. 27, 2014. 

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. – Jan. 3, 2012
– Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI), a leading provider of mission-critical communication solutions and services for enterprise and government customers, today announced that its WiNG 5 Wireless local area network (WLAN) access points (APs) and controllers have received the ICSA Labs’ Firewall certification. A leading global authority in security certifications, ICSA Labs testing provides assurance to the user community that certified products meet ICSA Labs’ stringent security standards and also deliver strong risk-reducing security protections.


  • Motorola is the only technology provider in the market that has received certification for both APs and controllers in its WLAN portfolio, following rigorous testing at ICSA Labs.
  • ICSA Labs tested Motorola’s products against the new, more stringent version 4.1x of the firewall corporate certification testing criteria, which includes a standard set of functional and assurance criteria elements.
  • Once tested, vendor firewall products remain continuously deployed in ICSA Labs’ Firewall Lab. Continuous deployment affords ICSA Labs’ analysts the opportunity to upgrade regularly and quickly test products against the latest security vulnerabilities that arise.
  • Motorola’s WiNG 5 architecture eliminates choke points faced by traditional hub-and-spoke architectures by using quality of service (QoS), mobility, dynamic RF management and security at the edge for mobile applications such as video and voice. Access points also have an integrated firewall to provide comprehensive, unmatched security features to protect enterprise wireless networks and help address PCI and HIPAA security requirements.
  • With solutions for every type of network, Motorola APs provide enterprise-level security and high performance for any LAN environment, allowing organisations of all sizes to select from a series of APs with special features, such as mesh networking, versatile radio coverage and instant deployment.
  • Motorola’s certified APs include: AP 621, AP 650, AP 6521, AP 6532, AP 7131, AP 7161, and AP 7181. Certified controllers include RFS 4000, RFS 6000, and RFS 7000.
