JiWire today unveiled its new service that enables mobile users to securely connect and send email from any wireless network. SpotLock's security and email features are bundled with a free connection manager and worldwide hotspot directory, so users save time finding, connecting, and securing any public WiFi connection all from one easy-to-use software download.
With a click of a button, JiWire SpotLock provides powerful, yet inexpensive WiFi security protection that keeps information safe from hackers, phishing attacks and "Evil Twin" access points. SpotLock security also includes automatic SMTP email relay to ensure users can reliably send email on any WiFi network without outgoing messages being blocked by local network operators or ISPs.
JiWire SpotLock helps users secure their WiFi connections with powerful encryption technology that:
* Encrypts all data (email, web, ftp, etc.) between the user's computer and JiWire's dedicated security servers on the Internet;
* Protects sensitive personal information and company secrets from wireless intruders;
* Provides personal firewall protection;
JiWire SpotLock helps users maximize their WiFi connections by enabling reliable email delivery that:
* Ensures outgoing emails are securely sent through JiWire's SMTP servers to avoid being blocked by network spam filters;
* Allows existing email software to be used to send all email without the inconvenience of resorting to a web-based email account;
SpotLock's free features also help users quickly find a free or paid public WiFi access point with JiWire's global WiFi hotspot directory, as well as manage their wireless network preferences and connect to WiFi signals through an easy-to-use connection manager.
"With over 63,000 hotspots in nearly 100 countries, WiFi is now a global phenomenon," says Kevin McKenzie, CEO of JiWire. "However, it's still very confusing for many people to use WiFi and also keep their information safe from the growing risk of security attacks. JiWire SpotLock makes it easier for people to use and secure WiFi at public hotspots, but also at the office or in the home if they don't already have an easy and reliable solution."
Built specifically for small businesses and self-employed professionals who do not have access to expensive corporate security solutions, SpotLock facilitates secure WiFi at an affordable price:
* SpotLock WiFi security and SMTP email relay -- $4.95 per month/$49.95 per year (includes free trial of 10 encrypted connections)
