Via PC Magazine: “Because they use radio signals, wireless networks are inherently vulnerable to hackers. All it takes to breech an unsecured wireless network is a wireless-enabled notebook or PDA, some free downloadable software and a bit of spare time. That’s why any wireless network, whether for Mom and Dad at home or an enterprise with thousands of employees, needs to take wireless security seriously. Surprisingly, many do not. Of 500 firms recently polled by Jupiter Research, less than half have implemented security solutions for their wireless networks.
As consumers bring more and more home wireless networks online, the need for good security will only increase. Despite the known weaknesses of older wireless security provisions, a plan that uses a combination of old and new security features can keep out all but the most determined hackers. And more recent security measures do a much better job of protecting wireless network traffic from prying eyes. We’ll give you details about the latest in wireless security, tell you what you need to know to secure your network and show you how to deploy the latest security features.”
