How to restrict neighbour’s wireless inside self premises.

Suppose my company does not have any wireless facility. But some other company in the same premises as my company has wireless facility and that can be used by members of my company. Recently we had an auditor and he suggested wireless should not be accessible to my company people as there can be data leakage (Note: we are working for a bank). Putting wireless jammers around my company will block telephonic signals too. If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The best suggestions that I can make is, see if you can have the company turn off broadcast so it is not advertising.  Have them block any and all users from your company by changing the security keys on their wireless system.  The first two suggestions could be a little difficult if the company is providing a free public WiFi Hotspot and that will not happen.  You could also put in a Group Policy that will turn off all wireless adapters in your domain when a person logs in.  This may also entail turning off USB  access as there are too many USB Wireless adapters.  You may also have to make changes if you have a BYOD.

    There's not going to be much you can do as they are another company.  Any solution which would block that WiFi signal would also block cell phone signals.

    There's also nothing that could be done about WiFi devices that can act as 'hotspots' themselves. Numerous recent phones (and other devices) of many makes and types are capable of that. They could be in any customer's pocket, purse or car. -- Tom
