Nice to see that road warriors are taking security seriously – or at least, that they are thinking about the dangers of using their machines in potentially insecure locations: according to a global survey more than half of all business travelers are still concerned about security levels offered by wireless.

Public Wi-Fi hotspots, in places such as airports, hotels, railway stations and coffee bars, have been available for some time, but 55 percent of respondents claimed they still have concerns about data security.
Nearly a third of respondents said that using a public hotspot bothered them, and a further 20 percent claimed they were nervous about using an unfamiliar wireless Internet provider. The research (conducted by wireless ISP iBAHN) highlights the need for mobile workers who access hotspots to be clued up on wireless security.
