Our Wireless Consulting Services Keep Your Business Running Securely
Your company’s wireless network can be a fantastic tool — or a dangerous security risk. Ensure that you have the proper configurations and strategies in place before deploying wireless networks.
Wireless networking is pervasive throughout the consumer world, and with that comes the expectation that companies will provide free WiFi access to customers at restaurants, stores, gyms and other public locations. With connected devices expected to surpass 75 billion units by 2025, there is little question that wireless networking is a problem that is going to continue and expand in the future. Wireless networks can be relatively easy to set up, but there are infinite configuration requirements that could potentially spell disaster for your organization if you are not careful.
WiFi endpoints can offer easy access to company networks without the careful application of security rules and safety procedures for your users. See how wireless consulting services from Rea & Associates can help reduce the possibility of an attack through this key security checkpoint into your networks.
Risks to Your Wireless Network
For every individual that is carefully and correctly using your wireless network, there are multiple other individuals who might be taking advantage of your digital hospitality. WiFi network risks include:
- Some criminals utilize wireless sniffing to “sniff out” sensitive information that is being carried on unsecured networks
- Mobile device theft is one of the most prevalent ways for cybercriminals to gain access to secure networks and requires additional care and consideration
- If files or folders are shared by employees on an unsecured wireless network, that information could be accessed by a dedicated hacker
- Piggybacking from neighbors or local businesses that are within the 1,000-foot range of your corporation
There are a number of ways to help reduce the potential of these attacks, Some fixes are quite straightforward, while others may require wireless consulting services to ensure you have your systems properly configured for your protection.
Wireless Consulting Helps Optimize Network Efficiency
It doesn’t take long to receive complaints when your WiFi network is not running at peak efficiency. Having the right software, hardware and access points available to support the needs of your customers and employees will reduce frustration and allow all teams to have quick access to the business systems and data necessary for productive work. With wireless consulting services from Rea & Associates, you have the added peace of mind knowing that your networks are fully optimized — regardless of the manufacturer and whether you are utilizing public networks or private.
Maintaining a high degree of security throughout your business starts at your digital front door: your WiFi network that is available for public use or use by your employees, vendors and contractors. Each individual that has access to this network is a potential risk, making it vital to deploy advanced security measures and maintain strict access procedures at all times.
