Wireless Security Assessment provides protection against would-be wireless network attackers. Here’s how Microminder’s WiFi Security Assessment works:

  • MCSL

    We locate the vulnerable APs throughout the network and its affiliated devices. We assess its weaknesses so that it can integrate suitable security controls.

  • MCSL

    We pinpoint and draw attention to unsuitable encryption, segregation, and authentication. We investigate unfriendly devices that have been installed without the approval of the IT department.

  • MCSL

    In terms of your security setup, we give your corporation best practice confirmation.

  • MCSL

    We test the effectiveness of your data segregation.

  • MCSL

    Microminder’s WiFi Security Assessments also examine WiFi radio frequency (RF) coverage trying to gain access from areas in close proximity.

  • MCSL

    We evaluate any design flaws in your security setup.

How to Prevent Wireless Security Breaches

There are numerous steps that your business can take to lessen the risk of your WiFi security becoming compromised.

On top of using Microminder’s WiFi Security Assessment services, you can:

  • MCSL

    Data is highly valuable to any company. By backing up your data, you can help defend against ransomware.

    Back up data properly

  • MCSL

    It is important to educate your employees about the risks and dangers of security breaches to lessen the chances of them happening.

    Inform your employees

  • MCSL

    It is crucial to update passwords regularly, never recycle them, and ensure they are both complicated and unpredictable. This is a hugely important security measure.

    Use complex passwords

  • MCSL

    Attackers can access your data by breaking into your network, so to make this far more challenging, secure every device in your network. This can be done by checking that your wireless traffic has encryption enabled.

    Secure routers

  • MCSL

    A powerful way to avoid breach attempts is to ensure you constantly update your operating system as well as application software.

    Update often

  • Develop a breach response plan

    MCSL

    Having a breach response strategy in place helps to ensure a fast response if a breach should occur. This can stop attacks from passing undetected.

  • Install a centralised firewall

    MCSL

    Firewalls act as an obstacle between networks with varying degrees of trust. Keep your firewall on at all times to protect against attacks.

  • Utilise antivirus software

    MCSL

    To prevent attackers from taking or destroying data assets, install and keep updated antivirus, anti-malware, and antispyware software on your server.

  • Use encryption

    MCSL

    Encrypting data is a great way of rendering data useless if stolen. Therefore, ensure you use encryption to diminish the damaging consequences of a breach.

How Does Microminder’s WiFi Security Tool Work?

At Microminder, we listen to our customers and their pain points and create solutions to resolve them.

With Microminder’s WiFi Security Assessment Services, a proven and industry-standard best practices strategy is implemented to ensure your wireless network is fully protected. Here is what our service involves:

Microminder identifies wireless APs within certain boundaries. We then test access to the wireless network from inside your company and then also locate APs outside of the perimeter that may put you at risk of a cyber-attack.

We examine how effective the security controls of your organisation are by looking at the network structure and operational requirements. Microminder assesses numerous facets of WiFi security, such as password controls, network encryption, authentication equipment, and settings for broadcast.

While our first two stages certainly strengthen a wireless network’s security, it is also essential to see how strong your security truly is by emulating an attack. This way, we can determine if your network is likely to be breached and deem the effectiveness of your security. Examples of wireless attacks that we may simulate include WPA(2) Pre-Shared Key (PSK) brute force and WEP replay.

To decrease the effects of a security breach, it is vital that sensitive services and assets are isolated from network users. Microminder’s experts will try to gain entry to systems within corporate LANs (or WLANs) as a guest to see if an attacker could use a compromised WiFi network as a springboard for a security attack.

There will also be some penetration testing that will be undertaken to clarify the extent of any wireless vulnerabilities, but disruption is minimal. Upon completion, you will be given a report of wireless weaknesses and potential ways to resolve them. Microminder’s team is also available for further consultation should you require any more help or advice.
