Managing Wireless Security In An Organization

[Full Text]



Muhammad Jahanzaib Khan



Keywords:- Wireless Networks, Wireless Security



Abstract:- The adoption of wireless mobile computing solutions has been of benefit to government institutions, commerce and learning institutions among others. This is because of the higher customer satisfaction and higher productivity that have been made possible. A wireless network is a computer network, which is not connected by cables. This assists business enterprises and organizations by facilitating a flexible environment and avoids the capital cost of installing cabling in a building. The network is implemented by use of radio waves for transmission. This paper will discuss how to handle wireless security in an organization.
