Leaving the back door wide open?

Are your employees leaving the back door wide open?

work-from-home-back-door-open

Most of your employees have wireless networks set up in their homes.  Unlike your business Wi-Fi, many home users are lax about creating secure wireless networks – leaving a backdoor open to hackers.  Wi-Fi signals often broadcast far beyond your employees’ homes and out into the streets.  Drive-by hacking is popular among cybercriminals today. 

 A few tips for securing your employees’ Wi-Fi access points

  • Use stronger encryption and a more complex password 
  • Hide your wireless network name 
  • Use a firewall 

These security measures are not difficult to set up and prevent you from leaving the back door wide open.  If you have any questions or need assistance, we will be happy to help get your employees set up remotely.
