With technology continuing to evolve and improve, it’s critical that customers understand what they need for their businesses and that they direct the right questions to their vendors. When deploying a wireless failover solution – it’s important to keep in mind that offerings vary widely in functionality and price, and it will save both time and money to define your requirements prior to purchasing your solution.

To help simplify the process, we’ve compiled a list of 10 things that must be considered when deploying a wireless failover solution:

  1. Is your Business PCI Compliant?

Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance is a set of security standards developed to protect card payment information during and after a transaction. Exposing your network can result in financial disaster, so make sure your wireless failover solution is PCI compliant.

  1. Block Unnecessary Websites

A solution that helps block unnecessary web surfing can limit Internet abuse, boost security and lower bandwidth usage. This is especially true this time of year when March Madness is in full swing.
