Wifi security and VPN

Unlimited Support CallsWireless computing used to insecure for business purposes. That changed with the introduction of WPA-2 encryption mechanism a few years ago. Nowadays, most businesses - barring banking and high-security forms, have at least one wireless hot spot and laptop users access the local network as well as the internet wirelessly almost universally. WPA-2, when configured propely, is an almost unbreakable encryption mechanism. "Almost" because no encryption system is 100% hacker-proof. If a hacker is absolutely determined to break into your system, chances are he will eventually succeed. So if this a primary concern for your business, you might want to eliminate all wireless access points. Another point to keep in mind is that wireless communication is inherently vulnerable to drop-outs, especially if you are located near an airport (due to bounced echos from overhead aricraft as well as UHF band interference) or an industrial complex with electromagnetic pollution.

VPN, in a nutshell, is a method for remote office and users to communicate with the central office or remote servers (in a datacenter) over the internet without the threat of 3rd party evesdropping. If your servers are hosted/co-located, having a permanent site-to-site VPN (using the IPSec or SSL protocols) is mandatory. If you have remote users such as salepeople or if you travel and need to access files or email at the office, again VPN is mandatory.

Setting up and configuring secure wireless access poirnts and VPN tunnels is all covered under our standard support plans at no additional charge.
