Hackers can spy on, intercept or alter
employees’ outgoing data, including
important emails and security
credentials to your business network -

Using readily available tools, hackers
can capture packets of data passing

Evil Twin Attacks
With seemingly legitimate network
names, hackers can trick employees into
connecting to a rogue Wi-Fi hotspot.
Once this happens, they have access to
all the account information and data
employees enter and transfer online.
If employees have enabled file-sharing,
hackers can install malicious software
on their computers and then use this
software to capture usernames,
passwords, files and email exchanges —
long after they've left the hotspot.
Hackers use this small, portable device
to generate spoofed sites. So while
employees may believe they're safely
browsing on an HTTPS encrypted
website, they're actually handing over
The Risks Are Only Increasing
There are a multitude of reasons why Wi-Fi threats are here to stay.
Wi-Fi Hotspot Growth
Today almost every coffee shop, airport, hotel, city square and train offers public Wi-Fi. And those that don’t, will soon. In the coming years, the number of smart cities are projected to grow - exponentially.
The Rise of Bring Your Own Device
IT managers no longer have a static endpoint surface to protect. As more employees enjoy flexible BYOD policies, more organizations must surmount frequent and varied security threats.
The Urge to Stay Connected
The use of public Wi-Fi is nearly universal. In fact, we are so driven by our need to remain in contact, that many people say one week without Wi-Fi would leave them grumpier than one week without coffee.
Why Aren\'t The Current Solutions Enough?
Most VPN providers require users to actively connect for secure Wi-Fi browsing, however:
Employees often can't tell the difference between secure and unsecured Wi-Fi networks
Devices can automatically join public Wi-Fi hotspots without one's knowledge
VPN services may simply disconnect when a device is in locked or sleep mode
