MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AirTight Networks, the leading provider of secure Wi-Fi Solutions, has constructed the world's largest cloud footprint available today with tens of thousands of Wi-Fi networks attached to the AirTight Cloud. AirTight Cloud Services™, first launched in 2008, now offers six globally deployed secure datacenters with massively scalable architecture. AirTight's data centers are SAS-70 type II certified - secured with multiple levels of physical and cyber security measures, two-factor authentication and protection against environmental hazards.



"Cloud managed wireless networks eliminate the cost and complexity of managing distributed Wi-Fi networks. AirTight provides its customers with carrier class scalability to meet their current and future needs," said Kaustubh Phanse, Principal Wireless Architect and Chief Evangelist at AirTight. "With fully redundant, fault tolerant datacenters in the United States (2), EMEA, Australia, South Africa and AsiaPAC and plans for additional geographic expansion, AirTight is well positioned to meet the growing demand for cloud-services as the enterprise becomes more comfortable with cloud managed solutions."

AirTight's globally distributed data centers offer five 9s uptime with local and WAN-based high availability and redundancy. AirTight APs and sensors at customer locations communicate with the AirTight cloud over an AES-encrypted tunnel. Both APs and sensors are capable of standalone operation and can continue to provide uninterrupted service even if Internet connectivity at a customer location goes down.
