Published 14 Nov 2019
Wireless connectivity is a business continuity requirement for most customers. As such, security of networks is a top priority, and with wireless networking celebrating its 20th anniversary, it is clear that the wireless industry recognizes that authentication and encryption protocols must evolve to guarantee the security of wireless communication moving forward. In June of 2018, nearly 14 years since the last update, the Wi-Fi Alliance announced a major security improvement to Wi-Fi: WPA3 (Wi-Fi Protected Access Three). WPA3 is the next generation Wi-Fi security standard that tackles WPA2 shortcomings to better secure personal, enterprise, and IoT wireless networks.
