Eliminates need for separate firewall appliance, saving costs while elevating security features
LOS ANGELES – March 28, 2023 — Nomadix® Inc., bringing connected experiences to life, today announced the introduction of new firewall and security features to its suite of internet gateways. The firewall module replaces the need for purchasing, configuring and maintaining separate appliances and aligns with major brand standards. The new release also offers CAPPORT API support, a feature that enables improved Wi-Fi onboarding experiences.
Hotels, apartments, student housing and other managed Wi-Fi networks need to protect users from a wide range of cyber threats, while maintaining fast response times for a high level of traffic. By adding built-in firewall functionality to the Nomadix internet gateway, IT managers gain granular and flexible management controls to effectively protect their networks with a single device, without disruption to the bandwidth management or service. The latest release, which also includes CAPPORT API support, is available in release 9.4, launching in April.
According to the IDC FutureScape Worldwide Hospitality, Dining and Travel 2023 Predictions, by 2026, 45% of hospitality and travel organizations will hire or reskill employees for cloud IT security to reduce the negative impact of breaches. Eighty percent of hospitality and travel organizations will make security/trust programs a top priority.*
“It is critical that every property provides the essential security and privacy layer to protect every guest, resident and employee who accesses the property Wi-Fi,” said Chris Spencer, group chief information security officer at Nomadix. “Nomadix is dedicated to delivering secure, reliable, affordable, and frictionless connectivity experiences and believes the new firewall and security features embedded in our internet gateway family will provide greater value, simplicity and security for the hospitality and multi-tenant markets.”
Secure, reliable and fast Wi-Fi is the top amenity requirement when choosing where to stay, where to meet or even where to live. The full internet gateway portfolio enables resilient and responsive Wi-Fi access for properties of all sizes. The Nomadix Firewall is available as an add-on module to the Nomadix Gateway as part of the 9.4 release.
The Nomadix suite of internet gateways is a powerful standard for the hotel and multi-tenant networks, and the company will be announcing further expansions to the product family over the coming months and at several industry events. For more information, visit: https://nomadix.com/events/.
