TitanHQ, the leading global provider of secure Wi-Fi solutions, has announced a new partnership with 4ipnet.

4ipnet is a global provider of affordable WLAN products and solutions to businesses, providing them with opportunities for value added services and the monetization of Wi-Fi networks. 4ipnet customer base includes businesses, educational institutions, healthcare organizations, and hotels around the world, with clients including Chunghwa Telecom, FLC group, Adrian Hoteles, Iberostar Hotels & Resorts, Berjaya Hotels and Resorts, and the PPHE Hotel Group.

TitanHQ is an award-winning provider of email and web filtering solutions which make networks safer and block a wide range of cyberthreats. TitanHQ’s SpamTitan and WebTitan suite of products have been adopted by schools, universities, colleges, hotels, banks, governments, ISPs, and SMBs in more than 129 countries around the world.

The partnership between 4ipnet and TitanHQ has seen 4ipnet accredited as a provider of Friendly Wi-Fi. Friendly Wi-Fi is a certification program for public Wi-Fi hotspot providers that confirms the Internet is filtered to prevent obscene material such as pornography from being accessed, and that all webpages included on the Internet Watch Foundations blacklist – webpages known to contain images of child abuse and child pornography – are blocked.

The Friendly Wi-Fi program was created by the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) and is supported by the government and major Wi-Fi providers. The initiative was launched after concerns were raised of the risks to minors from accessing the Internet via public Wi-Fi networks that lacked the parental controls typically implemented at home. Any location that displays the Friendly Wi-Fi symbol has been confirmed as having appropriate controls in place to ensure the Wi-Fi network can be accessed safely and securely by minors.

4ipnet customers are now protected from a wide range of online threats, and can carefully control the Internet sites and web pages that can be accessed via their Wi-Fi networks. 4ipnet customers will also be able to market their Wi-Fi hotspots under the banner of Friendly Wi-Fi, ensuring customers are prevented from viewing inappropriate and illegal website content.
