The advent of new technologies are in pace with the needs of consumers for convenience and comfort.  How easy is it to work out of a hotel room in one of the advanced cities of Asia or Africa and send files for an early morning meeting in the U.S.? 

The world is global indeed.  So, are the risks associated with it, especially now with the plethora of wireless devices.  Wireless devices are carried to the workplace and back to wherever people travel. Sensitive data can be accessed and siphoned by hackers in minutes or even seconds from the US to anywhere around the world.  

Lack of enterprise wide network security and loose remote management can pose huge security risks to companies. Other huge risk threats are open Wi-Fi, public hotspots, malware disguised as android applications, employees downloading mobile applications, sharing applications, unclear corporate policies, stolen/lost devices and the inability to track them at all times.

The solution to all of these is to take preventative measures now.  Wireless intrusion detection and prevention devices to counter malware threats and risks are available. Let’s talk about your environment and network safety.
