Wireless Networking (Wi-Fi) can be used in a number of ways in the typical business:
- To allow employees using notebooks and tablets to move around freely.
- To allow printers to be placed in locations without network connections.
- To allow clients to connect to the Internet.
If you are going to take advantage of any of these, you need to be fully aware of the security pitfalls involved. Designed correctly, a Wi-Fi network can be nearly as secure as a fully wired one. Conversely, an incorrectly configured Wi-Fi network can expose your entire business network and all of its data.
Public Wi-Fi hotspots can cover anything from a single room in your business to an area blocks in size.
