Wi-Fi risks can be easily addressed
Risks around deploying the new high-speed Wi-Fi 802.11n standard are not unfounded, but the potential security concerns can be easily addressed (Long road to 802.11n Wi-Fi, 28 April).
Point monitoring using a mobile device or laptop solution allows users to identify isolated risks. Ad-hoc or continuous monitoring with an enterprise-level tool, which alerts users to potential security weaknesses, adds a further level of security.
It is also worth pointing out that companies that do not employ any wireless security measures are unnecessarily risking not only their corporate data, but also wireless network performance.
