Google Enters Wi-Fi Protection Market

By | September 20, 2005

New updates on Google’s home page offer a downloadable Wi-Fi client application referred as Google Secure Access, suggesting that Google might be close to launching its own Wi-Fi service.

The tool provides an addition layer of security when accessing the Internet via a Wi-Fi connection. The client redirects any requests to pass through Google servers, enabling Google to access massive amounts of information.

Google’s Wi-Fi plans have been rife over the past few months, with the company expanding its portfolio with Google Talk and purchase of wireless start-up Android.

Google has not revealed much information on its new product and from the frequently asked questions page it states that Google Secure Access is in “beta”, meaning that it is not considered a fully finished product.
