The results of a new study from IDC offer a strong thumbs-up to the fast-evolving information security services sector, predicting that the market for such services will increase to more than $23.5 billion in the next four years. Demand for security for wireless networks will drive the growth of the information security services market. Announcements by major companies (i.e. Intel, Dell, Gateway, IBM) backing wireless technologies are setting the stage for wide-scale deployments and the ushering in a new era of wireless freedom.The bottom line is that wireless is here to stay. The integration of 802.11 into almost all new laptops, coupled with the explosion in availability of public hotspots has created a cycle of large scale wireless proliferation. This invisible, yet inescapable flood of radio waves has landed squarely in our homes and businesses where it presents a new security challenge. How do we embrace the joys of wireless networks while we maintain an essential balance with the security needs of our organization? This book is all about understanding the technology, recognizing the security risks, and implementing a responsible and realistic game plan for safe and secure wireless communication.
