United States Patent Office (USPTO) recognizes Hotel Internet Services for security protocol developed for the BeyondTV Entertainment Streaming Solution
CLEARWATER, Fla. — Hotel Internet Services (HIS) has been awarded a patent by the USPTO for the guest data security protocol used in its BeyondTV solution, an industry-leading platform that allows hotel guests to access content from online streaming subscriptions or wirelessly cast from personal devices onto guestroom televisions. Issued with patent No. 10,097,864 and officially named ‘Guest Personal Data Protection,’ the technology provides guests with the assurance that all online browsing or app usage history and any personal account information, such as usernames or passwords, is completely erased to ensure against identity theft or otherwise unauthorized use.
While catering to growing guest preferences for personalized content, BeyondTV has always prioritized the need to protect sensitive guest data. The newly awarded patent includes several security-enhancing features, including BeyondTV’s ability to automatically delete all guest user information upon check-out. Using the television remote control, guests can also manually erase all of their data and usage history at any time by simply pushing a button. Further, BeyondTV requires guest device registration to begin wirelessly casting to their in-room television.
