iPass signs deal with major U.S. bank for global mobile connectivity
iPass announced that it has been chosen by a major multinational, US-headquartered financial services company to provide global wireless connection management and Wi-Fi connectivity for its employees. Following a successful pilot program, the deal will keep bank employees automatically connected to the best data network available, ensuring productivity and security while managing costs. Using iPass SmartConnect on corporate-issued devices, the bank's employees will be able to seamlessly and securely connect to millions of iPass Wi-Fi hotspots, automatically transitioning back to cellular when Wi-Fi is not available. The bank in turn will be able to manage how its devices connect, optimizing performance and costs.
