A new white paper published by Computacenter is helping organisations to become more effective via efficient Wireless Local Area Network security and mobility within the workforce.

As part of the research conducted by Computacenter, 35 percent of corporate users connect via public Wi-Fi networks on a regular basis. By getting wireless security and capacity right, organisations will be able to realise the full business benefits of greater mobility in the workplace - whether itís increased productivity or profitability.

It has also been stated that 72 percent of employees now work on company-owned laptops whilst only a third of users have been issued with corporate smartphones. The amalgamation of personal and corporate devices in the workplace means that employees interact with a variety of different devices during the day Ė both for personal and work purposes. For example, 85 percent of employees use a laptop, 75 percent use a smartphone, and 47 percent use a tablet or similar device.

To ensure that WLAN encourages not encumbers mobility, IT departments need to scale up and lock down their infrastructure. Computacenter provides a range of assessments that enable customers to maximise their existing networking assets and make informed investment choices.

Furthermore, a survey by security analyst Ponemon revealed that 80 percent of organisations believe laptops and other mobile data bearing devices pose a significant enterprise security risk. A more robust and intelligent approach to security is particularly key given the growing use of public Wi-Fi networks.
