Should you allow guests to access your WiFi network?

by | IT Security Tips

Do you have guest access on your company WiFi network? Or do you simply give out the same password that your employees use? If you give out your password, you’re practically opening the door for anyone to come in and steal private information, infect your private computers and even steal customer credit card data if you are processing them over the same Internet connection.

The key to providing free guest WiFi access is in segregation and security. Your WiFi guests need to be completely isolated and segregated from your private network (something we can do for you). Your guests should not be able to reach your internal computer network, credit card terminals or other network-connected devices.
