Open Garden and IntegriCell Collaborate on Secure Wireless Mesh Solution

By Rory Lidstone April 29, 2013

Startup Open Garden and IntegriCell, a provider of mobile security for enterprises and governments, have entered into a partnership to develop a secure, multi-network wireless mesh solution for IntegriCell's customers. This solution will leverage the latest version of Open Garden's software platform to provide consistent, crowd-sourced bandwidth and improve Internet connectivity across all devices.

Open Garden launched version 2.0 of its platform in March, which offers better service, stronger coverage and faster download speeds thanks to new, multi-hop and channel bonding features, which help mobile operators offload network traffic, while enabling seamless connection handoff.

"IntegriCell's expertise in enterprise security and mobile ecosystem integrity makes them the ideal partner for Open Garden," said Micha Benoliel, Open Garden CEO and co-founder. "Our goal is to solve the ongoing 4G availability, Wi-Fi security and Internet resiliency issues that organizations face, and help enterprises distribute high-integrity network access to their teams; anywhere, anytime."

Open Garden works behind the scenes, leveraging multiple devices, Wi-Fi connections and any other available Internet signals simultaneously to deliver efficient, powerful and consistent mobile Internet connectivity. As such, the platform is capable of joining all types of Internet off-ramps, whether Wi-Fi hotspots or 4G base stations, to offer superior connectivity on many levels.

Indeed, Open Garden doesn't just provide faster, more reliable Internet connectivity, it also offers unique security capabilities, ensuring the integrity and confidentiality of data shared over its network.

"When enterprises have tried to solve the problem of mobile connectivity, security has often been an afterthought. With this new version of Open Garden, we will deliver an innovative enterprise collaboration system that reinvents how people communicate securely," said Aaron Turner, CEO of IntegriCell.

Of course, security is always of the utmost importance in the enterprise and is more relevant than ever as more companies embrace BYOD (bring your own device). As always, the best tool to use in order to secure your network while implementing BYOD is knowledge. Fortunately, TMC is holding its SecureIT Conference at the NYU Kimmel Center in New York City soon – July 23, to be exact.

The focus of SecureIT is how to protect your enterprise in a BYOD world, providing attendees with just the knowledge needed to keep sensitive data secure even with multiple devices connected to the network.
