    The Connected Mobile Enterprise

    iPass provides a global, secure wifi service. iPass SmartConnect provides the intelligence to connect mobile workers via a cross platform application, automatically authenticating securely with minimal user input. iPass helps to consign "bill shock" to the history books.

    We live in a mobile world, where mobile workers need to get and stay connected. Businesses risk losing time and money if their teams cannot connect and undermining their security if their teams cannot connect safely. Data is exploding, driven largely by the emergence of cloud-based applications, like  Office 365, the rise of video content, and the increase in file sizes and file sharing. To access and send corporate-critical data, mobile workers will inevitably turn to public Wi-Fi. While pervasive, free Wi-Fi is not secure and a cyber-attack via free Wi-Fi can be incredibly costly to any business. In fact, 60% of small and mid-sized businesses that suffer a data breach go out of business in six months. To remain successful, businesses must ensure high-quality, secure, ubiquitous connectivity for their mobile workforce. iPass is a cloud-based service that offers intelligent, secure, seamless Wi-Fi access on any mobile device. Built on a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform, iPass ensures secure connections for users when accessing the applications and services needed to stay productive. iPass offers three layers of security and an additional layer of protection, the Last Mile VPN, which encrypts users’ data out to iPass’ secure Internet gateway.
