MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AirTight Networks (airtightnetworks.com), a global leader in cloud-managed Wi-Fi, announced today that it has finalized an agreement with DataAssure, for the on-going deployment of Airtight 802.11ac Wi-Fi access points to be installed in the headquarters, showrooms and service centers of one of the world's leading vehicle services groups with regional headquarters in Hong Kong.
"We are excited to offer AirTight's unique technology to customers that are looking for a proven Wi-Fi solution which has been successfully deployed on a large scale by well-known brands," said Stephen Hui, Chief Technology Officer, DataAssure. "With the help of the AirTight Wi-Fi, we have been able to penetrate the Hong Kong and Macau markets with aggressive pricing and superior pre- and post-sales support. Another consideration is that with AirTight the cloud hosting is located in Hong Kong so that customer data never needs to leave the country."
"The fact that DataAssure switched from carrying Cisco Meraki and Meru Networks to Airtight is a testament to our products," said Steve Choi, AirTight Networks' Managing Director, Asia Pacific Sales. "Our 802.11ac products were available in the region ahead of the competition and we are the only vendor that has integrated wireless intrusion prevention (WIPS) in the access points. In addition, AirTight offers a level of cost-effectiveness that allows DataAssure to meet its customers' budgets for flexible deployment models – both cloud-managed and on-premise."
Hong Kong-based DataAssure is a value-added distributor and solution integrator offering best-in-class data assurance and data protection products across Asia Pacific. Its mission is to help IT organizations fully optimize IT resources while dramatically decreasing capital and operational expenditures. DataAssure works with a variety of distributed enterprises, including retail, hospitality and education, where it plans to deploy AirTight's Social Wi-Fi & Analytics.
"Our automotive customer has operations in Europe, Asia Pacific, Russia and emerging markets," added Hui. "One of the reasons we recommended AirTight to them was the ability to manage the Wi-Fi infrastructure remotely, which aligns with our network operations philosophy and our goal is to expand the deployment to North and South Asia locations and beyond."
