Default WIFI security issues

Please Login to Remove!

Looking at deploying 8820's however there is a concern around data security when using WIFI. Does anyone know if there is any encryption going on when sending email messages, enterprise messenger messages, etc while over WIFI. Sounds like we might have to disable WIFI via the an IT Policy if there are security concerns.

I know some firms, like mine, use security certificates on their PC wifi, but how they get on the BB at this time I have not heard. Do you see any settings on the BB for that.

Nearly all Wifi protocols are encrypted. You can chose which one works best for BBs and PCs and go with it.
