Proactively Stopping WiFi In The Office
from the hello,-overreaction dept
While many offices are trying to figure out how they’re going to fit WiFi into the office space securely, it appears that one building in the UK has gone in the absolute opposite direction. They’ve installed what sounds like a complex and expensive system to make sure there’s no WiFi anywhere in the building. It’s the News International building (publishers of a variety of UK newspapers) where they’re afraid of what might happen if, you know, people communicated with each other. Yes, there are certainly legitimate reasons to try to stop rogue WiFi networks, but WiFi can be configured securely, so it just makes you wonder why their so afraid of what might happen if people could connect wirelessly. Many offices have realized that it helps increase productivity, but apparently that would be a bad thing in the news business.
