WiFi service provider for hospitality and hotspots finds network management solution with OpenDNS

OpenDNS, the award-winning navigation service that makes the Internet safer, faster, smarter and more reliable, today announced Hospitality WiFi has switched to OpenDNS in an effort to make its wireless Internet service safer for its customers. Hospitality WiFi provides the most advanced Wi-Fi and wired networking solutions for high-speed Internet access available to hotel guests, convention center exhibitors, corporate apartment residents, special event participants and other venues where Internet access is desired. OpenDNS is the world's-largest, fastest-growing DNS service.

Hospitality WiFi services over 280 properties in 48 states where each ISP has its own DNS service with a unique set of IP addresses. While searching for a DNS service that is both superior to the basic service provided by the ISPs - offering phishing protection and Web-content filtering - and that can be used at all of the properties, Lead Systems and Support Engineer Brandon Miller came across OpenDNS as the answer after a suggestion from his co-worker.

"We used each individual ISP's DNS settings, which are rather difficult to keep accurate track of. OpenDNS is a solution to this problem," says Miller. "Additionally, the phishing filter is an excellent feature. Using OpenDNS protects Internet users from going to phishing sites and submitting private information to nefarious parties."

Miller was also encouraged to select OpenDNS over other services because of the additional features and tools it offers. Hospitality WiFi was looking to expand into areas and businesses where stricter content filtering is needed, but the company did not have a Web content filtering solution available prior to OpenDNS. Now, with OpenDNS's easy-to-use Web content filtering options Hospitality WiFi can make its goals of expansion a reality.

"I would definitely recommend OpenDNS to others," says Miller. "Our experience with the service has been very positive and we are looking forward to using OpenDNS at more and more installations. Thanks for a great service!"
