DUBLIN and MCLEAN, Va., Oct. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- CYREN (NASDAQ: CYRN) today announced that European Wi-Fi Hotspot operator Anacapa Holdings Ltd. recently deployed the CYREN WebSecurity platform across its European network of over 2,300 Wi-Fi hotspots, located in 20 countries and supporting 17 million authenticated users. Anacapa operates hotspots on behalf of a diverse portfolio of site partners such as McDonald's, KFC, Burger King, United Colors of Benetton, Volkswagen, Mercure Hotels, Ibis Hotels and in addition, via a partnership with a European Tier 1 ISP, a major retail bank.
Switching from a system focused on the enforcement of acceptable browsing policy, Anacapa selected CYREN WebSecurity for its ability to deliver this capability while also keeping hotspot users safe against the very latest Internet threats, such as zero-hour phishing and malware, malvertising, and watering hole attacks. In addition, through its unique European Regional security cloud hosted in Germany, CYREN WebSecurity utilizes a Data Sovereignty capability to ensure that sensitive customer data remains within the EU.
Joseph Brunoli, Managing Director of Anacapa, explained the company's reasons for choosing CYREN: "Our free-hotspot.com network is Europe's most established brand for free public Wi-Fi that is fast, easy and above all safe for the user," he said. "However, as we continue to expand our business into the Wi-Fi Managed Services sector we need to provide even more robust network security for our private, corporate and professional clients. We feel that CYREN's broad service palette and their European-based support capability make them the best partner to provide the right solutions for all our Wi-Fi deployments."
"As a European Wi-Fi network operator, Anacapa understands that maintaining the security of their users' devices is critical," said Lior Samuelson, CEO and Chairman of the Board at CYREN. "By selecting the cyber security platform that offers the very highest levels of protection against zero-hour Internet threats and sets the new standard for user data privacy, Anacapa has defined a blueprint for effective Wi-Fi security that illustrates real thought leadership. We are proud to welcome Anacapa and their 17 million users to the CYREN global cloud platform, which today already supports over 600 million users. This decision serves as yet another validation of our decision to invest in capabilities such as our Regional Data Sovereignty, which sets us apart from the rest of the industry in the area of user Data Privacy."
