San Francisco (PRWEB) July 1, 2009
OpenDNS, provider of the award-winning service that makes the Internet safer, faster, smarter and more reliable, today announced Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts has switched to OpenDNS to keep staff and guests safe online. Headquartered in Singapore, Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts has a portfolio of 17 upscale hotels, resorts and serviced suites, all employing OpenDNS as the solution to all Internet security problems. Representing ten countries across Asia and North America, Pan Pacific describes OpenDNS as the "corporate norm" because of its cost savings, ease of use and dependability.
Looking to cut costs in IT but not willing to compromise the online safety of its guests, Pan Pacific turned to OpenDNS as a security solution after an IT professional recommended the service to Monty Singh, the Director of Information Technology for Pan Pacific. Singh describes himself as an industry "trend-setter" by being among the first to implement OpenDNS, the world's largest and fastest growing DNS service.
"OpenDNS has already saved me somewhere in the region of $20,000," said Singh. "Pan Pacific has saved significant costs by OpenDNS intercepting harmful Web content."
Pan Pacific ranks Web content filtering among its top Internet security needs. Protection from phishing and otherwise dangerous sites confirm the hotel's dedication to establish a safe Internet with OpenDNS, and enhance the visitors' online experience. And the organization appreciates OpenDNS's excellent performance at all of their global locations.
"Implementing OpenDNS prevents my users from accidentally clicking a link and downloading spyware, viruses, or other harmful bots," said Singh. "OpenDNS is my first line of defense against these harmful agents."
OpenDNS is the leading provider of free security and infrastructure services that make the Internet safer through integrated Web content filtering, anti-phishing and DNS. OpenDNS services enable consumers and network administrators to secure their networks from online threats, reduce costs and enforce Internet-use policies.
