Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Too many businesses still have unsecure networks. Fortunately or unfortunately it is easy for a small or medium sized business to have a wireless network. Unfortunately, those same companies may have unsecure wireless networks. In fact, the default settings on your companies Wireless Router usually come with no security. As a result, your wireless network can leave your business open to hackers who can ruin your computer, compromise your system, and steal information.

Did  you know that there are sites like that are dedicated to mapping wireless networks and finding out whether or not they are secure? You can type in a zip code and see a map of all wireless networks in the area.

Hackers use these sites to practice their skills and try to access computers on a wireless network to see what they can steal.  They also use this technique to attack business systems and put viruses and SPAM sending applications on company computers.

It is essential that your company take the necessary steps to secure your wireless network. Why is your wireless network more vulnerable? With a traditionally wired network, a hacker needs physical access to that network. With a wireless network your system works with a radio signal, and it is easy for hackers to access this signal from outside.

When data is being transferred via this radio signal, it can be easily accessed or corrupted. With a hard wired network, the data travels and stays within the wires. A wireless network is an easy and economical way to set up a business network, however, they are not secure. The threat of hackers, viruses and spyware will only grow over time, set up a secure wireless network to keep your computer, data and company safe.
