    Network security is one of the important IT concerns and organizations strive to ensure that the Wi-Fi networks that the company devices connect to are known, identified and verified for security. When employees work remotely, this concern is mitigated by configuring VPN on the devices but when employees work from a conventional office setup, the Wi-Fi network connections are uniform and consistent. The ability to plug and work as soon as employees enter the office premises is essential to support productivity.
