AirTight Expands Its Cloud Services

— March 29, 2013

AirTight Networks, a provider of secure Wi-Fi Solutions, has constructed its largest cloud footprint available today with tens of thousands of Wi-Fi networks attached. AirTight Cloud Services, first launched in 2008, now offers six globally deployed secure datacenters with massively scalable architecture.

The data centers, located in the United States, EMEA, Australia, South Africa and AsiaPAC, with plans for additional geographic expansion, are SAS-70 type II certified - secured with multiple levels of physical and cyber security measures, two-factor authentication and protection against environmental hazards.

The globally distributed data centers offer five 9s uptime with local and WAN-based high availability and redundancy. 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.

AirTight Cloud Services is a suite of hosted Wi-Fi access, wireless intrusion prevention (WIPS), and compliances services, which offers customers:
  • Multi-tenant, massively scalable architecture
  • Secure, fault tolerant datacenters
  • Location aware centralized management
  • Zero touch provisioning and flexible pricing
Depending on their requirements, enterprises can choose from a variety of deployment and pricing options. The service can be hosted and managed by a scalable global multi-tenant public cloud, a specific private cloud, on-premise VMware or server appliance.

Pricing is available as full Capex, full Opex (bundled) cloud service, or a hybrid (unbundled) cloud service. The AirTight Cloud Services can be chosen from pay-as-you-go subscription-based modules so that customers can buy only what they want and not pay for features they don’t need.
