Mobile Innovations will join other world-leading NICHE users, partners and police IT experts to showcase their seamless, smart-phone-based, PC-like experience in the street, the cruiser or the station.
Showing how MPANiche RMS puts mobile police knowledge at the officer’s fingertips, Mr. Bauer will be on hand throughout the conference, and afterwards for in-vehicle demos.
TORONTO, May 11, 2018 (Newswire.com) – Mobile Innovations CEO Gary Bauer today announced his company’s two scheduled police business sessions at the upcoming 2018 Niche User Conference in Toronto, from May 13th to 16th, 2018. One session on Force-Wide Mobile MPA Niche on Android, and another on 2-Factor Authentication will be open to all attendees on the afternoon of Tuesday, May 15th.
Mr. Bauer will be on hand alongside representatives from South Wales Police and OPTIC throughout the show to do live, demos of Mobile Innovation’s Mobile Police Assist (MPA) Niche solution, on both Android and iOS devices with PKI 2-Factor Authentication.
“After making great inroads in the UK with our Android solutions, and investing significant time and effort on 2-Factor PKI authentication, and completing several pilots in Canada for our combined Android and iOS solution, we’re now getting traction in our own backyard,” explains Mr. Bauer. “Mobility has come a long way since the early days of BlackBerry and the demand for mobile solutions that work on the street and in the vehicle continues to grow as more Millennials come on stream.”
For the last few years, Mobile Innovations been working closely with Darta Fleet Solutions and Samsung, to extend the mobile hand-held solution from the street to the Police car using the DeX Desktop Experience Dock. With its DeX-enabled MPANiche solution, Mobile Innovations can now deliver a smooth transition from the street, to the DeX equipped car, and then back to the station – all driven by the smartphone.
This mobile innovation makes it possible to issue a PKI-enabled smartphone – rather than a ruggedized laptop – to every officer as their primary computing device. Samsung Note8/S8/S9 and plus models, connected to a keyboard and touchscreen in the cruiser via DeX, gives officers using MPANiche a PC-like experience at a fraction of the cost. It includes 5 port USB hub and an HDMI port, and it is powered via the USB-C, enabling connections to keyboard, mouse, Drivers License Scanner and printer.
The company’s MPANiche in-vehicle DeX demos will be supported with an afternoon session at Samsung headquarters in Mississauga immediately after the end of the conference, before most folks head for home again. To arrange your demo, please call or text Gary Bauer directly at 416-889-9997.

At a Connected Officer Forum by Samsung, Rogers and Darta, dozens of experts lined up to see Mobile Innovations in-vehicle solution demo.
PRESS RELEASE UPDATED: NOV 17, 2017
TORONTO, November 17, 2017 (Newswire.com) – Mobile InnovationsCEO and founder Gary Bauer joined Rogers, Samsung and Darta Fleet Solutions to demo his company’s new 2-factor-secured Niche Mobile Police Assist (MPA), to a packed audience at the Rogers Connected Officer 2017 Forum. Held inside Darta’s state-of-the-art up-fitting facility, the event featured vendor presentations as well as the Mobile Innovations demo and attracted over 100 mobile law enforcement experts and solutions providers from across Canada, the USA and the U.K.
Throughout the sold-out event, Mr. Bauer carried out over 50 live demos, showcasing his company’s MPANiche mobile solution, native apps like MS Office 365 and VDI (Virtual Desktop Interface) using Citrix Receiver and Horizon clients to connect back to a windows desktop when a native app is not available to access necessary data. Using a 12” touchscreen, full-sized keyboard, license scanner and ticket printer, running on a Samsung Note8 and connected with the embedded Samsung Desktop Experience (DeX) station, the seamless setup was demonstrated live for the first time ever, in a Darta-up-fitted Dodge Police Enforcer.
“The super-positive response, from such a qualified group of mobile policing experts to our in-vehicle DeX setup was great,” said Tim Wade. “Watching the wows from people seeing DeX work live and real- time confirms that our innovation is right on the money and right on budget for any police force. This is what they want now.”
There was a queue to get in the car, and numerous questions and answers as folks imagined a phone-based platform for the street, in the vehicle, and back at the station.
GARY BAUER, CEO
“We’re very pleased at not only the turnout but also the high level of interest in our in-vehicle office and other up-fits,” added Massimo Tari. “We’re grateful to our major supporters Rogers and Samsung, and of course to Gary and the Mobile Innovations team for their work with us on this game-changing innovation.”
“There was a queue to get in the car, and numerous questions and answers as folks imagined a phone-based platform for the street, in the vehicle, and back at the station,” exclaimed Mr. Bauer. “Native Mobile Apps, using a DeX-connected smartphone to make the device work like a secure, in-vehicle PC with 12” touchscreen and keypad, license scanner and ticket-printer, is the first implementation of a vision many people see as their own.”
The Darta up-fit with Samsung DeX and Mobile Innovations is now available at a fraction of the cost of ruggedized laptop up-fits and works with Galaxy Note8 and Galaxy S8/S8+ devices.

PRESS RELEASE UPDATED: OCT 24, 2017
PHILADELPHIA, October 24, 2017 (Newswire.com) – Mobile Innovations and Darta Fleet Solutions embed Samsung DeX Station Into Concept Police Cruiser At IACP 2017 For Low-Cost In-vehicle Data Using Galaxy S8 and S8+ and Galaxy Note 8 devices.
Mobile Innovations Founder and CEO Gary Bauer today officially announced immediate availability of his company’s solution for secure mobile data, in the form of a fully-loaded Darta Fleet Solutions Dodge Enforcer featuring Samsung DeX Station with USB, HDMI and Ethernet connections.
To maximize in-car users’ visibility and ease of use, Mobile Innovations has DeX enabled their Android Niche RMS client so that it presents in portrait mode on the phone. When docked in the car the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note8 is presented in a full-screen landscape mode on 12.1 ruggedized screen. While docked in the car the phone is also being charged by the DeX Station.
The battle for the handheld will be won on the desktop, and the DeX Station is a huge factor in seeing how this could permit your phone to become your primary data device, in-car, at your desk, and on the street.
MANDY STAGER SMITH, IACP ATTENDEE
In this concept cruiser, Mobile Innovations leverages the affordability and functionality of DeX Station by adding a ruggedized 12.1 inch monitor and keyboard — turning the Galaxy Note 8 or Galaxy S8 or S8+ into an end-to-end mobile data access solution. From the officer’s hand to a desktop, to an in-vehicle Samsung 8 series device — there is no break in the chain with fingertip data access that is better, faster and cheaper.
The entire in-cruiser RMS data setup available launched at the IACP 2107 Conference and is available now for about one-third of the cost of a ruggedized laptop solution.
“We’ve worked on a few concept cars with Mobile Innovations over a five- or six-year period, but our upfit for Samsung is past the concept stage and is immediately commercially available today!” said Mr. Bauer.
Comments from participants at the IACP conference being articulated are ‘the battle for the handheld will be won on the desktop’, and the DeX Station is a huge factor in seeing how this could permit your phone to become your primary data device, in-car, at your desk, and on the street.

MONTREAL, July 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Mobile Innovations Corp. CEO Gary Bauer today announced the 112th Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police Conference and Expo 2017 as the venue for the upcoming release of his company’s new secure mobile RMS / CPIC data solution — the MPA Niche 3.0 suite of law enforcement apps with industry-first Two-Factor Authentication for Android and iPhone. MPA Niche also features law enforcement apps for GPS tagging and location look-up, various forms and reports including street check, intel submit, witness statement, and an electronic pocket notebook.
Two-Factor Authentication enables users to access data on their smartphones when two factors of authentication are provided. It is an extra layer of security for officers, designed to ensure they are the only persons who can access their accounts, even if someone else knows their password. Canadian Law Enforcement policy requires all National records or Police data be accessed only if protected by 2-factor challenge/response authentication.
In Canada and many other countries, Two-Factor Authentication is required by strict government privacy laws and regulations like NIST SP800-157, which have been put in place for protecting confidential and personal RMS and CPIC information on mobile devices. Mobile Innovations integrates Entrust Datacard and Gemalto SafeNet with access to Niche RMS data and other policing apps providing the mandated data protection — previously available only with the discontinued Blackberry Smartcard reader, a PC or a ruggedized laptop. Mobile Innovations is the only company with a viable, device-agnostic, Two-Factor protected ‘total mobile policing’ solution.
MPA’s secure access to Niche RMS, CPIC and MTO/PARIS data, as well as a well-rounded family of law enforcement apps literally puts the sum of police knowledge at the officer’s fingertips. Police records and confidential data can be accessed, created, sent, checked, and backed up securely by the officer in the field. A robust back office suite and the ability to carry out basic work functions offline round out the MPA Niche offering.
Mobile Innovations Corp. CEO Gary Bauer — known for his work with Blackberry’s 2-Factor solution — says that his company’s new, NIST-compliant MPA Niche offering fills a significant void in the mobile policing marketplace. “Secure and encrypted mobile communications used to mean having a Blackberry phone and a Blackberry smart card reader. For the last four years after Blackberry smart cards readers disappeared, no viable mobile alternative has been available. Ours is first out of the gate; MPA Niche is the first secure mobile RMS data solution that is really complete, and completely device-agnostic.”
“With CACP 2017’s theme of Policing in a Digital Society, and the special emphasis on security, the 112th Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police 2017 Conference and Expo is the perfect setting to showcase the power of MPA Niche 3.0 on any Android or iPhone. We invite all attendees to visit us at our booth at the Palais des Congrès to see how MPA Niche 3.0 can change the way your mobile officers can work faster and safer with better knowledge, when they need it most.”
Visit Mobile Innovations at Booth 219 or contact us in advance to arrange your demo.

KENORA, CANADA, July 11 2017 Treaty Three Police Chief Louie Napish and Mobile Innovations CEO Gary Bauer today announced their successful completion of proof-of-concept for two-factor Authentication for the Treaty Three Police Services’ iPhone. This Canadian mobile policing innovation is the first in Canada to provide the two-factor security level required for police officers to use iPhone to access police data, paving the way to provide secure mobile access to police data to officers in the field.
Two-Factor Authentication enables users to access data on their iPhones when two factors of authentication are provided. It is an extra layer of security for officers’ Apple ID, designed to ensure they are the only persons who can access their accounts, even if someone knows their password. Canadian Law Enforcement policy requires all National records or Police data be accessed only if protected by two-factor challenge/response authentication.
Mobile Innovations is currently the only Canadian mobile software firm able to offer two-factor Authentication in compliance with Canadian Law Enforcement’s strict requirements for smartphones. Developed leveraging the Entrust Datacard Technology Alliance partnership, Mobile Innovations’ two-factor solution gives Treaty Three Police Service officers industry-leading PKI technology solutions through their Entrust Datacard platform.
Integrated with the NIST FIPS 201-compliant credentials from Entrust Datacard, the solution uses contact and NFC interfaces on smartphones and desktops. Using Entrust IdentityGuard Mobile Smart Credential, the two-factor solution on smartphones and tablets leverages NIST SP800-157 compliant derived credential technologies capabilities certificates on iOS, Android and Blackberry 10, which provides seamless smartphone security.
“We knew where we wanted to get to in terms of security, authentication, and ease of use, and we brought together many people, organizations and components to complete the task,” said Police Chief Napish. “By sharing technology from the province of Ontario, Ontario Police Technology Cooperative (OPTIC), and Treaty Three Police Services, our police service is able to contain costs while delivering information to officers using iOS devices and technology. The Treaty Three Police Service CIO, David Brown and numerous other partners worked closely together to realize this vision.”
Mobile innovations CEO Gary Bauer added, “Treaty Three Police Service officers have certificates on their smart cards so they can generate derived certificates on their VMWare AirWatch Mobile Device Managed iPhones, enabling them to achieve the strongest Identity Verification security level available on any handheld device.”
“While strong two-factor authentication has been used by Law Enforcement in Canada for over 10 years on desktops and laptops, making this available via mobile devices, like iPhone, while increasing the device security with two-factor authentication is a vision shared by many, it can now be deployed within Treaty Three Police Service,” said Bauer. “We are working with the most popular EMM platforms currently used by Canadian Law Enforcement and the two smartphone platforms these agencies are moving forward with. With the proof-of-concept behind us we are thrilled and looking forward to seeing our two-factor solution rolled out successfully in the coming months within the Treaty Three Police Service production environment.”
“Mobile Innovations is excited to leverage BBM Enterprise SDK,” says Gary Bauer, president of Mobile Innovations Corp. “Our law enforcement customers have a strong need for highly secure and protected IM, also using dynamic multi-OS chat groups, as they come together to staff incidents, attend occurrences, and solve crimes.”
Mobile Innovations is launching its new Two Factor Authentication solution at the 111th Canadian Chiefs of Police Conference in Ottawa Ontario. Company CTO Ian Bowles and President Gary Bauer will both be on hand to demo their company’s answer to securing CPIC and RMS data on mobile devices in compliance with Canadian legal requirements.
