    Wi-Fi networks are not secure enough for enterprises to run their businesses, according to a senior AT&T executive. Steve Hurst, product director for managed security services at AT&T, told ZDNet Asia that although some attempts to improve the security of Wi-Fi networks have met with success, engineers involved in the technology have yet to develop a secure architecture.

    "It is better today than it was two years ago, but it's still not difficult to crack into a Wi-Fi network. There are free tools available over the Internet that allow you to break into most Wi-Fi deployments," he said.
