Xirrus, Inc.: Xirrus Solves Security for Public Wi-Fi Networks With EasyPass Personal Wi-Fi

EasyPass Personal Wi-Fi Gives Any Establishment the Ability to Deliver Safe
Connectivity via Secure Personal Networks

THOUSAND OAKS, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2015) -Xirrus, the leading provider
of high-performance wireless networks, today announced availability of Xirrus
EasyPass Personal Wi-Fi, a key feature now available in all Xirrus cloud
managed networks that safeguards users and their data when accessing public
Wi-Fi, guest networks and hotspot environments. With this announcement Xirrus
is the first Wi-Fi provider to address the security concerns associated with
connecting to these networks, and makes secure personal Wi-Fi a reality for
the first time.

In a recent Xirrus survey on Wi-Fi usage, 76 percent of people know that
public Wi-Fi is not secure, but 62 percent use it regardless of security
implications. EasyPass Personal Wi-Fi allows users to create a secure
personal network via a simple, one-time process that authenticates all
devices, ensuring the data across their platforms is safe inside the public
network at all times. Unlike a virtual private network (VPN), which encrypts
end-to-end connections back to a corporate network and requires additional
software, EasyPass Personal enables users to easily create their own secure
personal network that automatically encrypts the data on the Wi-Fi network.
For the first time, businesses can easily offer security on their public
Wi-Fi networks without additional complexity.

EasyPass Personal Wi-Fi delivers the following benefits and features:

* Safe: Devices communicate within the secure personal network
* Secure: Traffic encryption protects valuable data
* Simple: Users connect all personal devices effortlessly
* Easy: No IT required to deploy and manage for each user

"It used to be that simply providing a Wi-Fi hotspot for your customers was
enough, but that isn't the case anymore. Customers are worried about security
risks when using public Wi-Fi, while organizations want to use Wi-Fi to
engage with customers in new ways," said Nolan Greene, research analyst
network infrastructure at IDC. "With EasyPass Personal Wi-Fi, Xirrus delivers
the ability for organizations to engage their guests, students and customers
while offering secure connectivity at all times."

EasyPass Personal enables public Wi-Fi environments to reap the benefits of
short term secure Wi-Fi communications for businesses like hotels,
restaurants, retail and event venues, as well as university dormitories,
assisted care facilities and multi-tenant buildings which require longer-term
use. With EasyPass Personal, these establishments can now promote an
unprecedented level of Wi-Fi security, to offer new services, attract new
business and create customer loyalty.

"Awareness of public Wi-Fi vulnerabilities is at an all time high. Whether we
want to acknowledge it or not, every time we connect to public Wi-Fi we are
putting our data at peril and are at risk of identify theft. Until now there
hasn't been a wireless solution to address this threat, said Shane Buckley,
CEO, Xirrus. "EasyPass Personal Wi-Fi is groundbreaking for our industry.
With this introduction, Xirrus offers the first and only solution in the
market that allows a secure private connection to be created within a public
Wi-Fi network. Now establishments that have deployed Xirrus Wi-Fi can deliver
the safest connection available and protect their users from cyber crime."

Xirrus EasyPass Personal is included at no charge with all XMS Cloud
deployments and is available for shipment today. To learn more about EasyPass
