How Will The WPA3 Affect Your Business?
This new standard is a big step up from WPA2, in terms of security features, but one thing that will remain the same is the differentiation between personal and enterprise versions. If you’re using professional grade WPA3-Enterprise, you’ll get the equivalent to 192-bit encryption strength, making it harder for hackers to access your data.
One of the most notable changes is that the new legislation brings individualised data encryption. This is designed to protect your data against eavesdropping from within the WiFi network.
How does this affect companies like yours?
Additionally, 41% of Android devices are vulnerable to a particularly ‘devastating’ variant of the attack that exploits the aforementioned vulnerability. The combination of Android devices plus the WPA2 has the potential to be very harmful to a companies’ networks, leaving it at risk from attacks such as ransomware and malware.
We can soon expect to see widespread adoption of this new standard. Meanwhile, why not take the time to reassess the security of your business’s WiFi network?
