Find out if your Wireless Network is Secure

Find out if your Wireless Network is Secure | Security | Chicago IT | Equilibrium | EQInc.comIf you are using WPA2 passwords for your organization's wireless network, you need to rethink your design. Both good guys and bad guys have developed clever ways to crack short WPA2 personal passwords.

With WPA2 Personal, use a password that is at least 20 characters long with a mix of character types. If your password is 15 characters or less and resembles a dictionary word, assume it is crackable. Also, with WPA2 Personal, there is also no per-user auditing and changing the password is difficult to manage. Organizations that keep security as a high priority must consider upgrading to WPA2 Enterprise. This version leverages Active Directory accounts for authentication by using a RADIUS server. Using this method avoids the insecurities of WPA2 Personal network. WPA2 Enterprise networks are far less susceptible to being cracked. It also includes detailed audit functionality. Users' domain-joined laptops will automatically connect without needing to enter a password.
