Wi-Fi Security in Quick Serve Restaurants

April 1st, 2011

Great webinar yesterday hosted by QSR Magazine featuring Yum Brands, Restaurants Unlimited and AirTight Networks.  Very insightful discussion with a couple forward thinking enterprises when it comes to deploying Wi-Fi in their restaurants, but the conversation is applicable to any retail environment really.  Clearly security and PCI compliance are still top of mind where wireless is concerned as expressed by the panelists as well as the research presented by AirTight Networks.  Over a period of 6 months, AirTight conducted a study of 725 retail networks and amazingly 24% of the still had at least one incidence of a rogue AP on the network, while 33% presented unsecure APs on the network.  68% of the networks studied has at least one wireless client vulnerability.
