The Wi-Fi Alliance just announced that WPA3 will be introduced during 2018!

This is huge news for wireless providers, vendors and users.  Even though WPA2 will continue to be maintained and enhanced, the new security protocol is sure to make a splash.  What are our Engineers most excited about? The new robust protections even when the user fails to use a strong password.  The new wireless security protocol will also block an attacker after too many failed password attempts.

Why should enterprise users be excited about this announcement? Because in today’s modern work life, traveling is a necessity.  That is why the new improvements to security on open Wi-Fi hotspots is so crucial.  Having the ability to give each user individualized data encryption is a game changer.

New WPA3 devices will begin to appear in the next few months.
