WORTHING, U.K. -- Global Secure Systems, the value-added IT security consultancy, says that a Russian's firm's use of the latest NVidia graphics cards to accelerate WiFi "password recovery" times by up to an astonishing 10,000 per cent proves that WiFi's WPA and WPA2 encryption systems are no longer enough to protect wireless data.

"This breakthrough in brute force decryption of WiFi signals by Elcomsoft confirms our observations that firms can no longer rely on standards-based security to protect their data. As a result, we now advise clients using WiFi in their offices to move on up to a VPN encryption system as well," said David Hobson, GSS' managing director.
