Identify security vulnerabilities in your wireless network

Wireless networks are essential to providing businesses with access to data, services and systems. However, they are particularly susceptible to cyber criminals. Attacks can be difficult to detect and defend against due to the diffuse nature of potential threat actors. Wireless network testing allows companies to stress-test their wireless networks and identify security vulnerabilities, enabling them to operate with confidence moving forward. A robust wireless network test allows your business to operate safely, securely and without any significant downtime.

CyberOne wireless testing identifies weaknesses in wireless architectures, addressing vulnerabilities that could lead to unauthorised network access and data leakage.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is wireless testing?

Wireless testing is the process of evaluating and verifying the performance, functionality, and security of wireless communication systems and devices. This includes testing the reliability and speed of wireless networks, measuring signal strength and coverage, assessing data transfer rates, and ensuring compatibility with different devices and protocols.

Why is wireless testing important?

There are numerous benefits to performing wireless testing. With wireless testing, the objective is to pinpoint vulnerabilities that malicious actors could potentially leverage. By assessing the efficiency of your security measures and uncovering inadvertent frailties, an organisation gains the opportunity to address and resolve these issues proactively, averting real-world incidents.

How often should wireless testing be conducted?

Wireless testing should be conducted regularly to ensure the network is functioning optimally. The frequency of testing may vary depending on the size and complexity of the network, but it is generally recommended to conduct wireless testing at least once every few months or whenever there are significant changes or updates to the network infrastructure. Regular testing helps identify any issues or vulnerabilities that may impact the performance and security of the wireless network, allowing for timely troubleshooting and maintenance.

Which tools are used for network testing?

There are several tools that are commonly used for network testing. Some of the popular ones include:

  • Ping 
  • Traceroute 
  • Wireshark 
  • Nmap
  • Netcat

These are just a few examples of the many tools available for network testing. The choice of tools depends on the specific requirements and objectives of the testing.

What is the difference between WiFi and wireless?

The main difference between WiFi and wireless is that WiFi specifically refers to a technology that allows devices to connect to the internet or a network wirelessly using radio waves. On the other hand, wireless is a broader term that encompasses any type of connection or communication that does not require physical cables or wires. While WiFi is a specific type of wireless technology, wireless can include other technologies such as Bluetooth, cellular networks, and satellite connections.

How can I test my Wi-Fi strength?

You can use online tools or apps specifically designed for testing Wi-Fi strength. These tools typically measure the signal strength, latency, and download/upload speeds of your Wi-Fi connection. Some popular options include Ookla Speedtest, Fast.com, and Google’s Network Diagnostic Tool.
