Popular 2-FOR-1 Cineplex benefit returns to give Members access to awesome entertainment
TORONTO, April 2, 2014 /CNW/ - Mobile phones and movies have a questionable relationship thanks to a few in-movie talk and texters. But Virgin Mobile isn't afraid to take center stage and state its love for movies and movie-lovers by offering a bucket-sized collection of Member Benefits for film buffs. Virgin Mobile Members get access to advance movie screenings, celebrity meet and greets and VIP access treats just by hooking up. Today, by popular demand, Virgin Mobile's 2-FOR-1 partnership with Cineplex is back for a sequel. What has your phone done for you lately?
Starting April 2nd, 2014, Virgin Mobile Members can grab two Cineplex movie passes for the price of one, every two weeks while quantities last. The offer was test run back in December 2013, and given five star reviews from our Members. High redemption and social buzz proved that two is better than one, and inspired Virgin Mobile to team up with Cineplex again to bring back the buzz.
"Only Virgin Mobile Members can say their phone gets them double the fun at Cineplex," said Joseph Ottorino, managing director, Virgin Mobile Canada. "We love offering Members awesome experiences. We're thrilled to partner with Cineplex to bring back this popular program that gets our Members access to a fantastic range of movie offers."

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems.

In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
