AirTight Adds Captive Portal, Walled Garden to Cloud-Based Wi-Fi Service

At the opening of the 2011 PCI SSC North American Community Meeting in Scottsdale, AZ, AirTight Networks, provider of wireless intrusion prevention systems (WIPS) and AirTight Cloud Services for PCI wireless compliance scanning and Wi-Fi access, announced the addition of Captive Portal and Walled Garden capabilities to its portfolio of Cloud Services - a suite of managed services which includes AirTight Secure Wi-Fi. The new capabilities allow restaurants, hospitality venues and retailers to expand their relationship with customers with Wi-Fi based value-added services such as customized content and e-coupon special deals.
AirTight Cloud Services provide a secure WLAN network with minimum cost and complexity while satisfying all PCI DSS wireless security requirements at no additional expense. The addition of captive portal and walled garden capabilities now allows merchants to expand their interaction with guests to provide opt-in localized content, create loyalty programs and garner in-store customer feedback.
