You may have heard by now that the newest wireless standard 802.11ax, also known as Wi-Fi 6, is upon us. Many vendors are now incorporating this standard into their latest round of access points (AP) and hardware. You’re likely intrigued by that alone but also swarmed with a few questions. Like what the benefits of Wi-Fi 6 are outside of the info in manufacturer slicks.

You might remember a time when some folks believed that having one thing alone meant that their business devices or networks were secure. “We have a firewall, we’re fine!” “All of our PCs have antivirus, so we’re good!” In modern times any single, standalone security product (antivirus, firewall, etc.) isn’t enough to protect your business, your users, and your data. However, these things do make for effective layers when securing your business with a defense in depth security strategy. Defense in depth is a security approach that we at Kelser subscribe to wholeheartedly for ourselves and our clients. A strategy that should be applied whether you’re protecting your office or your home environment when working remotely. In this article, we’ll walk through what defense in depth is, how it can protect your business, and the most essential layers that you should consider for any environment.
