Submitted By: Puneet Kour MIT183863 MN603 Wireless Networks and Security Laboratory #7 : Building a Secure and Efficient Wireless Network 1. What is enterprise network security? Enterprise network security is the protection of a network that connects systems, mainframes, and devices―like smartphones and tablets―within an enterprise. Companies, universities, governments, and other entities use enterprise networks to help connect their users to information and people. As networks grow in size and complexity, security concerns also increase. 2. What security threats do enterprise wireless networks face? Unlike wired networks, which have robust security tools—such as firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, content filters, and antivirus and anti-malware detection programs— wireless networks (also called Wi-Fi) provide wireless access points that can be susceptible to infiltration. Because they may lack the same protections as wired networks, wireless networks and devices can fall victim to a variety of attacks designed to gain access to an enterprise network. An attacker could gain access to an organization’s network through a wireless access point to conduct malicious activities—including packet sniffing, creating rouge access points, password theft, and man-in-the-middle attacks. These attacks could hinder network connectivity, slow processes, or even crash the organization’s system.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
