Organizations are at Risk from Lax Wi-Fi Security
According to our research, laptop computers comprise about one-third of all personal computers in U.S. and Canadian businesses, and most of them include wireless communications capabilities. But according to data from our 2006 IT Security Study, many IT organizations fail to grasp many of the easier concepts and configurations that are available to secure wireless networks. This article quantifies the adoption rate for two public wireless security standards (WEP and WPA) and breaks down the analysis by organizational size (based on the number of laptops supported.) The article also includes practical recommendations for securing wireless networks and itemizes the reasons that organizations should upgrade to the WPA standard as soon as possible.
Wi-Fi Ready for Prime Time
Wi-Fi is a low risk investment as long as a security assessment and appropriate risk mitigation measures are included as part of the overall strategy for implementation
Wi-Fi Moves Into Enterprise Computing
Wireless computing, or Wi-Fi, is making rapid inroads into corporate networks, driven by demands of mobile users and others who appreciate the convenience of being free from wired connections. According to the Computer Economics 2005 Information Systems Spending and Technology Trends survey of key CIOs and IT managers, the ROI and TCO characteristics of Wi-Fi are excellent. Therefore, Wi-Fi is a low risk investment as long as a security assessment and appropriate risk mitigation measures are included as part of the overall strategy for implementation.
Wireless Networking in the Enterprise
Wireless networks, more commonly referred to as Wi-Fi, are increasing both in quantity and performance. Selecting an effective approach for installing Wi-Fi within your company requires first understanding the options available and the trade-offs inherent in each. Wi-Fi remains an emerging technology, and some of the fundamental protocols are still under development. This immaturity does not necessarily imply great risk in developing a wireless network, but it does signal the need for caution in making choices. Click here to purchase. - $125 (USD)
