Wireless networks are very common, both for organizations and individuals. Many laptop computers have wireless cards pre-installed. The ability to enter a network while mobile has great benefits. However, wireless networking has many security issues. Hackers have found wireless networks relatively easy to break into, and even use wireless technology to crack into wired networks. As a result, it’s very important that enterprises define effective wireless security policies that guard against unauthorized access to important resources. Wireless Intrusion Prevention Systems are commonly used to enforce wireless security policies and wireless network configuration.
With the World getting more wired and almost every digital device accessible directly or indirectly via the internet, small business network security and computer network maintenance should be topmost on your agenda especially if you run a small or medium sized business enterprise.
Small or medium sized business enterprises are more vulnerable because they either do not have any networking security or have something in place that would make the hackers laugh! The result is that hackers have increasingly turned their attention to small or medium sized companies.
Why is your network vulnerable?
Today, almost all digital devices are or can easily be interconnected.Thus even your scanner-cum-printer-cum-fax can be remotely accessed by a moderately competent hacker. In fact, the machine need not even be directly connected to the internet. Just being part of your office network is sufficient.
The age of “information at your fingertips” is here.Everyone wants instant information on anything and everything related to their business. Therefore, almost everyone connected to your business is given access to your computer network to either get updates or to feed updates into your network. So whether it is your supplier wanting to print out your requirements or your courier company updating delivery details or your sales force updating sales details via hand-held mobile units or laptops, all log into your network regularly. Every access or entry point is potentially also a hacker’s gateway. Further, there are access points that might not be visible or obvious but an experienced hacker can find them quickly. Proof is already out there! Sensitive company data has begun to show up all over the internet for the public to view.
