It is not uncommon to read headlines detailing the latest data hack for a major organization. Any organization that experiences a security breach that exposes confidential data ends up under intense public scrutiny regarding the often lacking measures taken to safeguard such important information. The widespread usage of wireless devices intended to increase accessibility and productivity within an organization is the very same factor that leaves an organization open for an attack on their servers.
Each time a wireless device is used, it emits an electromagnetic wave that can be detected through other devices. Signal defense technology is a weapon for organizations to fight back against hacking attempts by keeping all electronic transmissions within the building. Learn more about how signal defense technology can improve your wireless security:
- 1. It Reduces Wireless Interference
WiFi uses radio waves to communicate across a network. When other nearby networks from other buildings get too close to your WiFi network, it can result in interference that lowers the strength of your network’s connection. Besides being a nuisance, a weaker connection may make your network more vulnerable and allow a hacker to gain access. Signal defense prevents the wireless signals from nearby areas from getting into the building and interfering.
- 2. It Eliminates Breaches Due to Human Error
Data hacks often are the result of weak passwords or lack of encryption, especially if employees are using their own handheld devices. If there are loopholes in a cyber-security system or an employee didn’t follow protocol, confidential data can be left wide open to nearby hackers to prey on. Putting a signal defense security system into place can protect your wireless network from being included in area WiFi hotspots, where hackers can use a computer program called a packet analyzer to intercept traffic as it passes through a network.
- 3. It Prevents Access to Your Network
If hackers are persistent enough, they may be able to bypass the security measures put into place. For instance, data encryption becomes ineffective if hackers are able to compromise an employee’s login credentials. Some hackers may work tirelessly to crack these passwords, so it can be safer to cut them off from the source and keep them from ever getting close with the use of signal defense technology.
