WLAN security neglected due to lack of awareness

Firms are neglecting wireless local area network (WLAN) security because they do not realise how vulnerable they are, according to an expert. Companies also believe that protection for their systems will be expensive and are reluctant to devote part of their shrinking budgets to security, the guru explains.

Amit Sinha, fellow and chief technologist of Motorola Enterprise Wireless LAN, says: “They do not realise that there are misconfigurations in their WLAN, rogue WLAN devices, and poor policy enforcement.”

He adds that businesses need to invest in a secure infrastructure for their networks and round-the-clock wireless intrusion in order to detect attacks and prevent accidental or malicious associations, for which they may require London IT support.
