Secure Access Solution For Corporations With Mobile Executives

iBAHN(r) VPN Certification Program Secures Connectivity for 500 Corporations
(PresseBox) (Bad Homburg, ) iBAHN, a leading worldwide provider of managed broadband services to the hospitality industry, has reached a new milestone, having certified the Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) for five hundred corporations worldwide.This number includes one-third of the Fortune 100 companies, such as Microsoft, ExxonMobil, General Electric, and Pfizer, among others.In today's compliance and data security dominated world, it is imperative that corporations are able to rely on their ability to use VPN connections when their employees travel.iBAHN meets this need by managing a program to certify the unique VPN settings of major corporations on their networks to ensure seamless, secure connectivity.

Hotels benefit from being able to ensure large corporations that the network will function with their VPNs.If a company is secure in the knowledge that its employees can access their company's VPN at a particular hotel or meeting facility, then those properties will keep and gain additional business.Roger Binks, director of marketing communications UK South & Ireland Marriott International, comments:"At Marriott we do all we can to ensure that our guests have a great experience when they stay with us or visit us for a conference, so the iBAHN VPN certification scheme is another way we can ensure that things will run smoothly.Our business guests demand a secure and easy connection to their corporate network, and iBAHN helps make sure it'll work for them each time they connect."

Companies benefit from knowing that their traveller's data is secure while using the iBAHN network.iBAHN enables multiple security levels on its networks,including the implementation of WPA (WiFi Protected Access)throughout its wireless network of over 1,000 hotspots in hotels, as well as patented capabilities within the network to isolate users from seeing each other's data.A VPN is a virtual private network that creates a secure "tunnel" to connect through either public or private Internet connections back to a company's internal networks and data repositories.Many companies regularly use VPNs to connect to the office while travelling or working from home due to its capability to create secure remote connections - meaning users have access to applications and files on the office server no matter where they are connecting from.

A common misconception is that an Internet connection is all one needs in order to access a VPN.Many corporations set up parameters that require unique settings on the network.In addition, each VPN connection requires an IP address to be dedicated during the connection.
Many network providers have to assign IP addresses to each individual hotel, which makes it difficult to add more IPs or re-allocate them as needed.The iBAHN network is set up so that each property can be dynamically (and automatically) assigned IP addresses, making it possible for large corporate meetings at an iBAHN-enable property to easily use VPN connections for all attendees.These are just a few reasons why more and more corporations are certifying their VPNs with iBAHN.

iBAHN VPN certification is a free service that ensures when a company's employees visit a hotel or conference location with iBAHN(r) Internet connectivity, they can seamlessly access their VPN.Not only does iBAHN provide a patented, secure broadband network, but the company also offers a virtually limitless pool of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.If an Internet provider doesn't supply enough IP addresses, then they can't properly support VPNs.Troubleshooting is also simplified with the iBAHN VPN certification because iBAHN keeps information about each corporation's specific VPN configuration and version on file.Corporations and hoteliers can begin the process for VPN certification by emailing "vpn@ibahn.com".iBAHN maintains a list of the recently certified organisations on its website.
