REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. -- iPass Inc. (NASDAQ: IPAS) today announced that the Ford Motor Company has extended a multi-year agreement to use iPass Corporate AccessTM services for secure, global connectivity.

Using the simple and intuitive iPassConnect(tm) client installed on their laptops, Ford Motor Company employees access the Internet or their corporate network simply and securely while on the road. iPassConnect requires just a single username and password to open the door to six different connection options in more than 150 countries, as well as to a user's VPN and endpoint security systems.

iPass is known as a leader in its field, offering one of the largest footprints of wired broadband service, as well as dial-up Internet, ISDN, GSM and PHS (a 2.5 G service in Asia). It also stakes its claim as the world's largest Wi-Fi network, with over 11,000 active hotspots.

All of the providers on the extensive iPass virtual network have successfully completed a rigorous testing programme to ensure service availability, as well as interoperability with policy and security tools, such as virtual private networks, personal firewalls and virus protection.

"As one of the biggest companies in the world, Ford continuously has a large number of travelling employees," said John Thuma, vice president of worldwide sales at iPass. "iPass is the right fit for companies like Ford because our service was tailor-made for large enterprises, with strong security and policy tools for the IT department and an easy-to-use interface for end-users."
