USTA(R) and EdgeWave(R) Enabling Secure Network Connectivity at 2014 US Open Tennis Championship

Powerful, Nonintrusive Solution Key for USTA to Provide 750,000 Attendees With a Secure, Connected Experience at World's Largest Annual Sports Event

SAN DIEGO, CA and NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/14 -- For the seventh consecutive year, EdgeWave, Inc.,® (www.edgewave.com), a San Diego, California-based cybersecurity firm, and the US Tennis Association (USTA) will be partnering to provide secure mobile Internet access to more than 750,000 fans, media and athletes expected to attend this year's 2014 US Open Tennis Championships.

An expansive mobile Internet infrastructure at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, N.Y., allows the US Open to provide athletes, media, sponsorship partners and fans with the most accessible and connected experience possible. With more demand for reliable, high-speed Internet access, the USTA once again selected EdgeWave to provide end-to-end Internet policy enforcement, keeping its network secure by blocking users from accessing undesirable content, such as online gambling sites, and keeping users safe from data breaches and attacks.

"In years past many major sporting events sought to keep people off of data networks, but the US Open has truly embraced the connected experience. Whether its fans posting to social media networks or sponsors using Wi-Fi devices for on-site marketing, more people and devices at the US Open means more demand and strain on our networks which need to be more secure than ever," said USTA CIO Larry Bonfante. "EdgeWave built us a powerful and nonintrusive solution that allows us to effectively control Internet usage policies without the need to touch every single device that comes on board."

"Environments like the US Open, the largest annual sporting event in the world, require solutions with maximum flexibility and scalability when it comes to network management," said EdgeWave CEO and President Dave Maquera. "Instead of having the USTA sacrifice business and user experience to meet security requirements, we built a custom solution that achieved both, allowing the USTA to provide a truly secure and connected experience."

With EdgeWave's Advanced Web Gateway and iGuard platform, the USTA can set flexible, yet granular security policies for Internet users and automatically block flagged URLs and web pages from reaching connection endpoints. During the 2013 US Open, EdgeWave managed 4.5 TBs of data over 210,000 unique endpoint connections during the course of the tournament, while maintaining a secure 850+Mbps throughput with zero network latency.

EdgeWave, who also provides on-site network security for other professional sports organizations including the Detroit Tigers' Comerica Park in Detroit, MI, has developed a suite of cybersecurity tools allowing event and venue managers to embrace the connected world with high performing, secure technology. EdgeWave's Advanced Web Gateway is the only web security solution that combines web filtering, anti-virus, and SSL encryption, plus laptop and mobile device security, on a proven multi-gigabit appliance.
