CHENGDU, China, Aug. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- exands, China's leading commercial Wi-Fi service provider, supplied Wi-Fi connection with Hotspot 2.0 technology for about 2,000 network security experts at CLOUDSEC's "Take Control" Cyber Security Forum in Chengdu, China.
As the first commercial Wi-Fi provider to introduce SMS authentication to access Wi-Fi in China, exands has long been a pioneer in promoting network security. The Hotspot 2.0 Wi-Fi service provided by exands for CLOUDSEC once again demonstrates exands' capability in strengthening safety and security in the wireless network industry.
Cyber-attacks have become a serious security concern in China and the rest of the world. As connecting to commercial Wi-Fi in public places and business premises is very popular among consumers, secure Wi-Fi connections are an important element of protecting valuable personal and business operation data.
To help businesses address these challenges and control security risks, CIOs and IT directors have been actively seeking professional and reliable commercial Wi-Fi solutions. By introducing Hotspot 2.0, exands takes commercial Wi-Fi service to a whole new level, with cellular-like seamless roaming across different Wi-Fi networks.
CLOUDSEC is an important and influential global community for cyber security experts and professionals that encourages continuous discovery of new technologies to secure the digital infrastructure and manage the technological risks of their organizations to safely support their corporate goals. CLOUDSEC has therefore become a platform to recommend and showcase cutting edge technology and solutions in protecting cyber security.
"Currently most Wi-Fi providers in China offer free wireless connection, with a condition of placing advertisements on the Wi-Fi landing page, however advertising revenue generated from the Wi-Fi ads usually does not cover the cost of purchasing hardware, installation and maintenance," said Guoming Lu, founder and CEO of exands.
"Because of this, free Wi-Fi providers tend to use low cost AP equipment with no security guarantee. This means neither shops, Wi-Fi service providers nor advertisers would take consumers' online security into consideration. Unfortunately, very few consumers are informed of this risk but we are excited to see the market is eager for a better commercial Wi-Fi solution."
While exands usually partners with chain business brands which are willing to take responsibility and pay for secure commercial Wi-Fi service, the company also provides wireless connection for POS, CRM and OA systems for business management as well as Wi-Fi service for in store consumers. exands' service currently covers more than 200 cities in China and serves over 250 globally renowned brands, including President Coffee, Haagen-Dazs, Buick, Chevrolet, and commercial real estate developers Wanda Group and Charoen Pokphand Group.
As the first company to introduce Hotspot 2.0 to the China market, exands calls for commercial Wi-Fi providers to return to their most critical mission, which is research and development of reliable and secure wireless connections.
exands is a business-to-business wireless service provider that aims to enable interactions and engagement between brands and their consumers. It spearheaded a series of innovative moves in China's fast-growing information technology market and is committed to providing both enterprises and consumers with simple, reliable and secured intranet and internet services by leveraging wireless technology.
