Hospitality’s leading provider of secured online services to present attendees with demonstrations of advanced security protocol for guestroom Internet
New Orleans — June 21, 2016 — Hotel Internet Services (HIS), a full-service provider of Internet services and solutions for the hospitality industry, will provide HITEC 2016 attendees with critical insight into one of the industry’s most critical challenges, which is safeguarding sensitive guest data in today’s increasingly digital hotel environment. With proven expertise on data security, having helped its clients circumvent effects from the growing number and severity of data breaches worldwide, HIS will share its best practices and steps that can be taken to prevent lapses in online security through the use of state-of-the-art technology solutions. With continuous demonstrations at booth #927, Hotel Internet Services will showcase how its proprietary Wi-Fi solutions can help properties satisfy increasing guest expectations of Internet accessibility, while also ensuring peace-of-mind, via highly effective and reliable data security protocols.
With record numbers of guests traveling with at least one smart device and expecting to find the same high standard of Internet connectivity that they do at home, hotel management and IT professionals have a need to understand the systems and features that must be provided, in order to guarantee consistent guest satisfaction. Attendees visiting the HIS HITEC booth will learn why implementing functions such as closed-source SSL, as opposed to open-source platforms, is critical in order to segregate guest traffic and prevent the sort of security breaches that have continued to dominate hospitality news headlines.
“As hotels come to terms with the fact that their reputation in providing effective Internet services is now often pivotal in a guest’s booking decision-making process, many are no doubt seeking answers on how to upgrade their offerings without incurring large expenses,” said Gary Patrick, CEO for Hotel Internet Services. “We are proud to stand out at this year’s HITEC as a unique resource, offering valuable advice on what is perhaps one of the most controversial topics affecting the global hospitality market. By speaking with one of our representatives, hoteliers will gain firsthand knowledge on how they can modernize their Internet offering and data protection abilities in a way that is affordable and that caters to virtually any guest need.”
Along with welcoming attendees during exhibition hours, HIS will also be hosting a press conference at its booth on June 22nd at 10 a.m., providing insight and answering questions on how properties can leverage advanced technology and proprietary Wi-Fi protocol to protect themselves from increasingly sophisticated network attacks. There will also be a presentation of HIS’ secure BeyondTV wireless streaming guestroom entertainment solution, including the latest developments and features. In addition, attendees will be provided with copies of two newly released white papers on Wi-Fi management and the BYOD trend. After the conference, attendees are also welcome to join HIS for a special “Jazz Up Your HITEC” brunch event, featuring freshly made beignets, roasted French coffee and live New Orleans jazz music.
