The Importance of Secure Wi-Fi for Small Businesses

The Importance of Secure Wi-Fi for Small Businesses

Since the days of dial-up, technology and the way we use the internet has constantly evolved — especially in the way it has impacted business. Organizations of all sizes and industries are facing increased pressures from customers, employees, and vendors to offer fast wireless access. Wi-Fi is a necessity that isn’t just about providing convenience and performance, it’s about providing security.

According to HotelChatter, 94% of people cite Wi-Fi as the most important amenity a business can provide. 

Although your business may be small, Wi-Fi security is a large part of your overall network security. It can also make your organization more productive and save you money. Setting up a Wi-Fi solution that is well thought out will save you headaches down the road.

Personalized Guest Experience

As a small to midsize business owner, being able to offer a personalized guest experience is to your advantage. By offering secure guest Wi-Fi, you offer your guests an easy way to connect, while still protecting your valuable data. The security of your business’s Wi-Fi is an essential part of your business plan. Nobody likes to think about hackers accessing your data via your Wi-Fi, but the threat is real.

Staying Competitive with Wi-Fi

In any small to midsize business, there are typically a lot of wireless devices. Behind the scenes, wireless solutions such as access points provide many valuable features not only for your own business but for your customers as well.

Here are the top 5 key features that keep your business and Wi-Fi delivery competitive today:
