Don’t you just hate it, when your wifi is down or not working properly? Especially at work, where it could lead to you losing customers due to your downtime, and definitely means your staff is not getting any work done.
And things go from bad to worse, if your network becomes infected. As a result, it is in your best interest to secure your wifi to stop strangers from using your connection. Strangers tapping into your network may slow down your connection or, quite simply, place you at risk of losing data.
Here are 2 simple, and yet very beneficial wins to securing your wifi.
Keep your guest wifi separate from your company wifi
The size of your company does not really matter when it comes to separating the two, and doing so renders you with full control of your security level and keeps visitors separate from all company connections. In order to avoid compromises re. the security of your company, make sure to define, segment and isolate guest activities, so your visitors still have what they need.
You can even limit their uploads and downloads, so they don’t exhaust your company wifi and connection.
1 username + 1 password per user
Access and security are intertwined, because access to your network depends on your security measures. Internally, you want to make sure that each user has their unique username and password. That means you can close users down individually, if they lose their access credentials, instead of shutting the entire network. Furthermore, it makes it easy for you to monitor your network, if you want to – including what your users are doing there.
It is easier than you think, as you can make it an integral part of your current network. By doing that, everyone’s normal passwords simply do the job.
