Wireless Network Security

Most businesses these days are using wireless networks, but for most small to medium business
they are not secure. The first item is get rid of WEP, use WPA2 encryption only. It is the most secure
and least likely to be hacked.

Along with that, you should have a strong password for WPA2. You should also avoid an SSID with TBJNetwork, it identifies who you are and can make you a target. You should also disable WPS, WPS is an easy way to add new devices, but it is very insecure and is an
easy way for you to get hacked.

Finally, if you want to allow guests to connect, setup a guest network. This will allow for a secure way to allow guests on to your wireless network.

Also, use an enterprise class wireless solution, it has better security built in and it will allow you to grow. To find out more about wireless security, contact TBJ Consulting at info@tbjconsulting.com or 262-373-9070.
