m3connect Chooses TitanHQ to Provide WiFi Content Filtering in DACH

TitanHQ has announced a new partnership with m3connect, one of the largest wireless Internet service providers in Europe. TitanHQ’s cloud-based WiFi content filtering solution – WebTitan – is now being used to protect m3connect customers from malware and ransomware downloads, while carefully controlling the Internet content that can be accessed across its WiFi networks.

Since the company’s formation in 2001, m3connect has grown into one of the largest providers of wireless Internet in Europe, with the company operating from its European offices in Aachen, Karlsruhe, Berlin and Sibenik and in San Francisco in the United States. In addition to offering customers wireless Internet with a flexible network design, the firm provides a wide range of digital services including VoIP, VoD, location based services, guest infotainment systems and digital signage and serves clients in the finance, retail, hospitality, transport and healthcare industries.

Now the firm’s customers will benefit from secure WiFi access protected by WebTitan. WebTitan is a cloud-based web filtering solution that offers organizations precision control over the websites that can be accessed via their wireless networks. Customers can control content by category, keywords, and blacklists to prevent harmful and undesirable content from being accessed. WebTitan detects and blocks more than 60,000 malware iterations each day, with the solution particularly well suited for WiFi deployments in the retail, finance, hospitality and healthcare sectors.

WebTitan can be used to protect single WiFi hotspots or global WiFi networks through a single administration control panel, offering instant control of website content without any latency.

Organizations are increasingly choosing a secure, filtered Internet service to protect customers from web-based threats, although in the hospitality and retail sector it is becoming increasingly important to filter the Internet to prevent pornography and other undesirable content from being accessed by WiFi users. As Roland Heinen, Head of Retail Department, m3connect explains, “Providing a powerful security solution is key to save the brand reputation of our customers. Youth protection is mandatory in modern hotspot solutions.”

Commenting on the new partnership, Heinen said “The partnership with WebTitan is one more step in our successful retail strategy serving our customers with state-of-the art WI-FI hotspot, digital signage and infrastructure solutions.”

TitanHQ’s CEO Ronan Kavanagh said “We’re delighted to welcome m3connect and their customers on-board. This is a partnership that illustrates just how well suited WebTitan is to retail environments.”
