Majesti-fi is seeking to recruit channel partners to sell its fixed rate pocket Wi-Fi solutions to UK business travellers wanting to avoid hefty roaming charges and operate safely when working abroad.
COO Mark Baxter (pictured) and former Modern Communications tech chief James Tyner have co-founded Majesti-fi and, after four years in development, claim their mobile size Wi-Fi devices will allow users to roam freely in over 140 countries.
Baxter said: “We have developed a package and a product that provides a fixed data cost, so whether in Timbuktu Johannesburg, New York, Lon-don or Tokyo, there will be an average saving of 67%.”
He noted a growing trend for mobile workers to use freely available public Wi-Fi in hotels, cafes, bars etc, a trend driven by the adoption of flexible working styles and remote working.
“These networks are often unprotected and can expose the user to malicious attacks,” stated Baxter. “The risk to businesses is immense, especially when corporate email and sensitive data are being accessed by people working remotely.”
Baxter has first-hand experience of security issues having previously been Head of Operations for a former UK Prime Minister.
“Our encryption technology ‘jumps’ between the strongest and fastest available 4G networks, meaning the risk of attacks, hacks and malware are significantly reduced,” he said.
