What is Wireless Security?

Wireless security is the implementation of features on a wireless network to help protect the network from unauthorized intruders. The number of unsecured wireless networks that are available for connection in my neighborhood when working wirelessly has prompted me to begin offering a competent wireless security service in NWA to ensure a safe and secure online experience for all. Many people don't realize that an unsecured wireless network is very dangerous and can have serious consequences. Wireless equipment that is purchased or installed must be specifically configured in order to be secure; wireless equipment is not pre-programmed to protect you. If you have not configured security settings for your network, you are potentially operating open and unsecured wireless access within your home or office. If your network is unsecured, it is accessible to anyone within range of your wireless signal. In the next couple of pages the consequences of an unsecured wireless network are explained.
