29 September, 2020 |

Kiana Privacy-Preserving Solution Requires No App or Software, Only Existing WiFi Infrastructure

Sunnyvale, Calif. – Sept. 29, 2020 – Kiana Analytics, Inc., the premier location-based platform company that delivers accurate proximity solutions to organizations worldwide, today announced it has been selected by numerous universities and colleges to assist with rapid response measures to reduce COVID-19 exposure outbreaks on their campuses including Dominican University.,

E&I Cooperative Services the largest, member-owned, non-profit purchasing cooperative serving the needs of education, has also endorsed Kiana with a negotiated contract.

Kiana Digital Contact Tracing Solution

Kiana’s real-time digital contact tracing containment system uses device-based detection and location-based analytics to help stop the spread of the virus. Kiana’s powerful Site Management solution was rebuilt from scratch to preserve privacy at a level required for Contact Tracing, it leverages existing WiFi infrastructure, and no new equipment nor app or software needs to be installed. Kiana Analytics recently was highlighted in Gartner’s “CIO Guide: How Location Services Can Help Mitigate COVID-19 Spread” as a top representative vendor.

Main Benefits of Kiana Solution:

The Kiana solution offers several benefits including:

  • Identify immediately all exposed people (per CDC guidelines) to prevent new exposures
  • Provides an exposure report highlighting areas in need of a surgical cleaning
  • Digitize buildings to support business continuity after COVID 19 to create a wellness-centered approach
  • ​Built around privacy with personal identifiable information (PII) only seen by an organization
  • No app, no software, and uses only existing WiFi networks in buildings with a minimum configuration update

“Thousands of new coronavirus cases continue to emerge on college campuses. We’re excited to be working with universities and corporations to enable a safe reentry. Unlike Bluetooth apps, our solution is private, requires no download, uses existing infrastructure and our Site Management can also be used after COVID is gone,” said Nader Fathi, CEO Kiana Analytics.

What Are Educators Saying?

“The health and safety of our community is our top priority. Kiana uses data from our existing campus wireless device registration to privately allow authorized employees to respond to a positive case of COVID-19 by identifying possible exposures, rather than simply react based on class schedules. Furthermore, we are excited to use Kiana Site Management after the pandemic is over to better operate our facilities,” said Jill Albin-Hill, Vice President for Operations and Technology and CIO at Dominican University

“The Kiana solution is affordable, easy-to-implement, and does not require special software or complicated configuration of mobile devices.  With their intuitive, intelligent dashboard interface, Kiana makes it incredibly simple for college leadership to decide how and who to privately notify about the exposure, and where to dispatch cleaning personnel,” said Keith Fowlkes, Vice President, E&I Technology.

Webinar: Protecting Your College and University Health During Pandemic Era

Kiana will host an informational webinar to provide universities and colleges with solutions to help them return to work and school safely, quickly, and easily. The event will take place on Wed., Sept 30th at 10:00 AM Pacific/1:00PM Eastern time. For more info and reregistration pleases visit www.kiana.io.
