A wireless network can help your employees stay productive as they move around your company. But to take advantage of the benefits of wireless networking, you need to be sure that your network is safe from hackers and unauthorized users.

Every device in a wireless network is important to security. Because a wireless LAN (WLAN) is a mobile network, you need a thorough, multilayered approach to safeguard traffic.

Cisco recommends a five-step approach for reducing risks to your wireless network:

  • Create a wireless security policy
  • Secure the WLAN
  • Protect your wired network from wireless threats
  • Protect your company from outside threats
  • Get employees involved
