UK virtual private network operator Sirocom has won a contract with HSBC for the provision of global roaming services for all the banks mobile users. Financial details of the contract have not been disclosed.
The deal follows a successful trial at HSBC's corporate, investment banking and markets division with over 4000 mobile users.
Sirocom now provides a fully integrated, managed service to all of HSBC's global regions using its iPassConnect client, which allows remote users to access multiple ISPs in over 150 countries at the cost of a local call. Each region has the flexibility to customise the service to its own specific requirements.
In addition to management and service, HSBC will use Sirocom's online customer service portal, FlexiVision, which features FlexiAdmin and FlexiBill systems, for real-time access to usage and billing information.
