What You Need to Know About WiFi Security

Public WiFi access is a threat to your network and data security

PRLog - Jul. 30, 2010 - CLAREMONT, Calif. -- The near ubiquity of WiFi hotspots nowadays has led to great advances in access and convenience for many. It’s also a great boon for “road warriors” who do most of their work from the field.

However, few people understand the risks of using wireless hotspots. When you go online in open networks that don’t use a password or encryption, potentially everything you send out from your computer can be seen by anyone with adequate technical knowledge. Therefore, whenever possible it’s best to connect in places where some encryption—either WEP or WPA—is employed. If that’s not available, using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) can help, which allows you to establish a secure channel of communication to your office network over the public Internet. How you use certain software is also something you should be aware of—some browsers, instant messengers, and email clients are more secure than others.

Wireless hotspots can be great when travelling on business or working on the road. Being proactive about security issues will go a long way in ensuring your safety and privacy. Make sure you contact your local IT support provider or ISN Global Enterprises, Inc. to set up your machines for secure access by implementing a network VPN, consulting on software security, and establishing other security measures.
