Provide Employees with Wi-Fi

Logging onto Wi-Fi outside of your home or office’s password-protected network is an invitation to hackers. Rather than connect to insecure Wi-Fi hotspots, provide employees with 4G hotspots when they are on the road. Public networks can be accessed by anyone, and without knowing their security credentials one cannot predict if it is a safe network.
