EvolveODM Partners with Phoenix Managed Networks to Deliver Affordable, Legally Compliant Security Solution to Public Wi-Fi Providers

-- Partnership Provides a Single Solution for Businesses Looking to Achieve Wi-Fi Network Security and Obtain Regulatory Compliance

LONDON, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Phoenix Managed Networks, provider of PhoeniXSentry, an easily deployed and extremely affordable cloud-based network security and management service, today announced a new partnership with UK-based public Wi-Fi provider EvolveODM.

The partnership creates a unique single solution for businesses looking to achieve network security for Wi-Fi hotspots and customer data ownership in cloud based managed platforms, whilst offering target marketing opportunities and helping customers obtain regulatory compliance.

With an increasing number of network data breaches and Wi-Fi hotspots threatening data security, businesses have an obligation to protect sensitive and confidential information entrusted to them and need to deploy affordable, secure and compliant security solutions. They are also seeking the benefit of owning customer data for highly targeted digital marketing activities. The EvolveODM and Phoenix Managed Networks partnership creates the world's only combined legally compliant public Wi-Fi and PCI solution that is PCI Level 1 Certified.

"We have been providing Wi-Fi solutions for many years, but this world class product takes our offering to a new level in transactional environments. Working collaboratively to develop this new product has now significantly changed the entire landscape and price position for Wi-Fi/PCI provision," said Gary Shaw, Commercial Director at EvolveODM.

PhoeniXSentry is a managed network and security service that is easy to deploy and manage. The cloud based service protects sensitive information – such as debit and credit card data, health information and other sensitive and personal data – on a 24/7/365 basis, without requiring any work on the part of the end user. As the world's first PCI DSS Level 1-certified network security service, PhoeniXSentry ensures all businesses under its protection meet their PCI compliance requirements.

"This is a great partnership, bringing together network security, PCI compliance, legally compliant public Wi-Fi and a complete Wi-Fi marketing platform in one single solution," said Alan Stephenson-Brown, Senior Vice-President, International Sales and Business Development for Phoenix Managed Networks. "Overall network security is critical as more retailers look to consolidate services over their existing connectivity and offer public Wi-Fi to their customers.

The EvolveODM platform provides additional peace of mind to hotspot owners, offering them a secure, fully legally compliant solution. PhoeniXSentry offers access to the cloud management system via a secure portal. Carefully designed not only for analytical reporting, capturing customer data trends and habits, it also has the capability to push B2B/B2C marketing notifications to a known customer demographic via Social Media, SMS, and email. The system carries full content filtering and also provides protection in the event of a user downloading material that breaches the Digital Economy Act for the sharing of copyright material. Standard Wi-Fi does not offer any of this type of protection when issuing WEP keys.

And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
