Data have immense value nowadays, not only the information value, but also the security value. Leaking personal or confidential data about customers may have very hard legal consequences for the organization, not to mention damaging the reputation with the public and business partners.

In the past, there were many remote, or if you want “hacking” attacks due to security holes in software (e.g. in the operating system, office software, etc.). However, the situation has changed and if you keep your computer software up-to-date, your firewall is on (e.g. within your operating system), the risk of these attacks is minimized. Therefore, attackers come up with new processes which are difficult to recognize at first sight. These processes are very hard to defend against.

In 90%, attacks come from inside the network so you do not have to recognize them at all. Nowadays, at the time of wi-fi networks, one of the most common scenarios is that the attacker connects to the network with a password. It is not relevant whether an employee or a former employee revealed the password to the attacker or whether the attacker found the password using some sophisticated methods. Moreover, the wi-fi signal does not has any precise limits; such an attacker can “work” simply from a rented neighboring office, from a café on the ground floor or, for example, from a car parked in front of the building.

It is far more demanding to prevent such attacks. The key to success does not have to be frequent change to your password and other security parameters of the network, either. The solution Netsejf allows you to reveal and block all unauthorized devices in the network and disconnect the attackers even if they know the wi-fi password and they are within the range of the network.
