How WiFi-as-a-Service Protects Customers from Cyber Attacks

In recent years, the prevalence of cyber attacks has continued to rise, increasing the need for cybersecurity for all SMBs'. One of the most commonly used methods by cybercriminals is hacking WiFi through an organization's wireless access points.

What is WiFi hacking?

In the modern workplace, everything depends on the Internet and a secure connection is an absolute necessity for all businesses. Unfortunately, most security breaches happen as a result of your IT provider not utilizing adequate protection against cyber attacks.

SMBs' need a secure connection to ensure that their employees, networks and customers are protected against infiltration, data extraction and theft of access data.

WiFi hacking is widespread because it is very easy to hack wireless access points.
