In the past, it used to be easy to protect computer networks from outsiders. If they weren’t close enough to run a cable from their desktop computer to your building, then they weren’t connected! But now things are different.
With the rise of Wireless networks, someone could be outside of your home, business, or apartment, and still be connected to the network that you own. You could never meet a person, and yet they’re on your private property.
And this fear isn’t just for home users who setup their own networks. This applies to business large and small as well. The convenience and ease of use of wireless networks have made them a mainstay for homes and businesses alike, but this convenience has also added a concern:

If any computer doesn’t have a badge assigned to it, BOOM!
