AirTight Showcases Unique Secure Wi-Fi Access for Multi-Unit Retail at NRF 2013; Cloud-managed Solution Provides Reliable In-store & Guest Wi-Fi, Customer Analytics and WIPS with Centralized Management

Software Configurable 3x3 802.11n Platform Addresses Security Gaps of Other Access Products

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AirTight® Networks, the global leader in secure Wi-Fi solutions, is showcasing its unique cloud-managed Wi-Fi for Multi-unit retail at the 2013 National Retail Federation's 102nd Annual Convention and Expo. AirTight Wi-Fi™ is the only enterprise-class 802.11n Wi-Fi access solution embedded with AirTight's top-rated wireless intrusion detection and prevention (WIPS) for concurrent access and wireless security in a single AP platform. Using AirTight Wi-Fi, retailers can provide reliable in-store and guest Wi-Fi, gather customer analytics and business intelligence and enhance loyalty programs while maintaining PCI compliance with a system that is secure and centrally managed. AirTight is providing live demos at NRF Booth 2183.

According to a recent report from Retail Systems Research, 96% of shoppers surveyed said they, "prefer locations that offer free Wi-Fi and return to stores because of this," while the majority of retailers who had adopted Wi-Fi for in-store applications reported various business benefits in terms of better employee support, improved customer experience, increased revenue and reduced costs.

Because AirTight Wi-Fi is centrally managed from AirTight's web portal, store operators can manage hundreds or even thousands of stores all from a single interface and deploy value-added services over AirTight Secure Wi-Fi to improve store efficiency and enhance the customer experience by offering Guest Wi-Fi, line busting applications, mobile POS and in-store kiosks. AirTight Wi-Fi offers:

  • Controllerless WLAN architecture which minimizes cost and complexity
  • Simple deployment and management with limited IT resources
  • Guest Wi-Fi access with captive portal and walled garden
  • Embedded WIPS which satisfies PCI compliance requirements

"AirTight's solution offers secure, cloud managed Wi-Fi for distributed retail that is affordable and easy to deploy. In-store and guest Wi-Fi can be operational in minutes with little or no on-site IT support. Customer analytics and business intelligence provide valuable insight to increase customer loyalty and satisfaction. And with the industry's top rated wireless IPS embedded in the access point, PCI compliance has never been easier," said David King, Chairman and CEO of AirTight.

AirTight Wi-Fi addresses the four major concerns that retail IT departments face when rolling out a Wi-Fi network – simplicity of deployment, ease of management, enforcement of a strong security policy across geographies and cost effectiveness. AirTight's unmatched flexibility in configuration, deployment and pricing makes its Wi-Fi and WIPS solutions easiest to use and most affordable compared to any competing WLAN solution, controller-based or otherwise.

The new C60 platform eliminates the security gaps inherent in all Wi-Fi access products at a cost 30% below that of any enterprise-grade 3X3 802.11n solution on the market today. Pricing is available as full Capex, full Opex (bundled) cloud service, or a hybrid (unbundled) cloud service.

AirTight has also introduced a fully customizable HTML5 user interface, giving network administrators a blank canvas to create the optimal WLAN management console for their individual business requirements.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization).
