Galway, Ireland & Manchester, UK. May 25th, 2017
Purple, the intelligent spaces company, has unveiled its latest partnership with TitanHQ, who are providing secure Wi-Fi content filtering to both new and existing customers worldwide.
By partnering with TitanHQ, customers who have opted to include content filtering in their Wi-Fi and analytics package from Purple will have complete peace of mind that over 60,000 malware iterations are being detected and blocked daily by the market leading Wi-Fi filtering solution.
TitanHQ’s content filtering is powered by WebTitan, the global leading content filter, which manages thousands of Wi-Fi locations across the globe through a single admin console without any latency.
Commenting on the new partnership, James Wood, Head of Integration at Purple said “We approached TitanHQ with a number of specific requirements that were unique to Purple. From day one it was evident that they were capable of not only providing what we needed but were very responsive and technically adept.
“We take guest Wi-Fi security seriously so it was important that our customers were protected in the right way. Along with superior protection, WebTitan also allows us to extend the control to our customers via their API. Our customers can now manage their own filtering settings directly from the Purple Portal.”
The superior content filtering system from TitanHQ not only blocks all inappropriate web content but also provides a key layer of security, which is particularly beneficial for businesses following the recent “Wannacry” ransomware attack that affected government, healthcare and private company systems.
Once the contract was in place between TitanHQ and Purple, the WebTitan team set out to replace the incumbent system in the fastest possible time frame. Over several thousand users were migrated safely and securely to the new content filtering solution within a matter of days.
Discussing the impressive turnaround time, James adds:
“With demanding timescales involved for the migration, we invested heavily in WebTitan and they have not failed to deliver.”
Ronan Kavanagh, CEO of TitanHQ, commented:
“We’re delighted to welcome Purple to the TitanHQ family. This is a partnership that illustrates just how well suited WebTitan is to Wi-Fi environments. Content filtering for Wi-Fi will be a given in service terms over the next few years. Purple again is leading the way with their focus on this area.”
Purple’s solution allows businesses to monitor their physical spaces and actively promote their brand, while providing valuable insights into customer behavior within venues.
With over 20 million users across 125 countries, Purple works with a range of brands and venues, including Legoland, Jaguar, United Wireless Arena, City of York, TUI, Centurylink, Outback Steakhouse, Pizza Express, British Land, Merlin Entertainments Group and the Indiana Pacers.
It has a global agreement in place with Westcon Comstor, in addition to an active reseller base of over 1,200 in 102 countries. Purple employs over 100 full time staff and currently has offices in the UK, US, Spain, Australia, Singapore and Chile, with more offices planned.
Purple is experiencing growth in multiple sectors, including hospitality, where people have time to spend online; in retail, where footfall tracking is essential; in healthcare, offering transparency around service and communication; and in entire cities moving towards the Internet of Things.
