Every company has workaholics who can’t leave their duties behind when heading out on vacation. They’re kind of worker who, if the hotel doesn’t have Wi-Fi, will rush to the closest coffee shop or eatery to stay connected, check email and jump onto a video conference call.
Those are the kinds of insecure wireless networks that make IT security managers nervous.
And for good reason. Public Wi-Fi networks at cafes and coffee shops are open to, and can be accessed by, anyone, according to mobile security vendor iPass.
