EdgeWave’s deployment at the 2014 US Tennis Open at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, N.Y. is a finalist for the Best Deployments and Case Studies category by securing web traffic at the highest attended annual sporting event in the world. EdgeWave partnered with the United States Tennis Association (USTA) to provide an open yet secure wi-fi network to the 750,000+ fans, media and athletes in attendance, and ensure all web traffic met with the USTA’s policy requirements. “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,” said USTA CIO Larry Bonfante.

The EPIC team is lead by Mike Walls, a retired US Navy captain with more than 28 years of experience in Cyber and Aviation Warfare. During his three command tours, Captain Walls ensured the cyber readiness of more then 300 ships, 4,000 aircraft and 400,000 servicemen.
