Orlando, Florida (PressExposure) June 15, 2009 -- iBAHN, the worldwide leader in digital information and entertainment systems, along with its well known Internet solutions, for the hospitality and meeting industries, announced today that its Virtual Private Network (VPN) Certification Program is now serving its clients globally. As businesses become increasingly global, iBAHNâs VPN Program provides assurance to certified companies that their executives will be able to function productively and seamlessly, with no geographic boundaries, while staying in iBAHN-installed hotel properties.
With its worldwide tally now including half of the Fortune 10, more than 40% of the Fortune 100 â and a total of 700+ corporations â iBAHNâs VPN program continues to provide certification services to companies whose corporate virtual private networks support thousands of business travelers every year. Because of their worldwide reach, these companies often require that their employees have the ability to remain productive while traveling on business. iBAHNâs worldwide reach includes more than 30 countries on six continents, making it the ideal technology partner for its corporate clients.
âOur unique-to-the-industry VPN program gives corporate travelers and their companies the highest level of security and productivity available,â noted Gregory G. Hodges, iBAHNâs president. âWe continue to bring new and value-added services to our hotel partners through deep investment in new technology development.â
The globalization of the iBAHNâs VPN program has proven to be a successful and valuable effort particularly for companies whose executives frequently travel in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia. A worldwide leader in networking products and management services recently needed its VPN certified for worldwide use, and the iBAHNâs implementation process was a coordinated effort among groups and teams located in the United States, Amsterdam, the United Kingdom, and Spain.
A recent example of iBAHNâs global team working together to support its global clients is a conference sponsored by the worldwide leader in networking for the Internet at the Hotel Arts in Barcelona in February 2009. The companyâs chief executive officer attended the meeting and received great benefit from the iBAHN VPN program.
âBefore the conference kicked off, we successfully tested the VPN connectivity both in the CEOâs room and in the conference area,â said Christian Schmidt, customer account manager for the region. âBecause we are able to work very closely as a global team â including the iBAHNâs VPN manager in the US, the enterprise conference solution manager for EMEA, the hotel account manager for the hotel and iBAHNâs UK operations department â this conference proceeded absolutely flawlessly. Very positive feedback from the client confirmed our success.â
