Our Wi-Fi Security Audits and Compliance Analysis include an examination of how the wireless network security is configured. For example, Microsoft and a number of independent organizations strongly recommend that the LAN Manager Authentication Level setting is set to Send NTLMv2 responses only, which provides authentication only when all client computers support NTLMv2. This is important because it only takes one loophole for hackers to get in and your data is lost.
Lack of proper network security configuration can create compliance issues; fines are very expensive.
Using TSCM technology, our Wi-Fi Security Audits of Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) helps guard against eavesdropping, network intrusions, data theft, and prevent enforcement penalties created by non-compliance to regulations. Our Wi-Fi Security Audits are included as part of our basic TSCM service, but may be ordered separately where compliance is the main issue. This audit is affordable, unobtrusive and easy to schedule.
