More Wireless, Not Enough Security

RSA, the security division of EMC, has found that larger cities have more Wi-Fi than ever and more security but the security is woefully outdated.

Using New York, London and Paris as their target cities, they have found the number of Wi-Fi access points have risen 49%, 44% and 160% respectively. Encryption was found to be up but only by 6% in London and less than 2% in both New York and Paris.

The analysis of the data has shown an improvement in security over previous years but an unbelievable one fifth to one quarter of all businesses have no encryption security at all.
