Wired and Wireless Security Best Practices

Wireless LANs can be a godsend for connectivity. Plan for a deployment of access points to provide coverage and bandwidth, connect them to network and you're off! The flip-side is that without adequate security anyone else may be able to use that same network to gain access to your precious data. The reality is that most wireless implementations have a diverse set of needs and implications for security. Employees of differing departments need verified and secure access to data to do their jobs, vendors and partners need restricted access to certain applications while you may wish to extend restricted, internet-only access to visiting, though validated guests or students.
