A computer network provides communication and enables the sharing of information to multiple users within a network. Network security technologies work within several layers to protect your network as a whole against any potential threats.
Networking and security include three main areas: administrative, technical, and physical.
Administrative network security controls the level of access for each user within the network. Processes and policies are set to limit or allow access and control each user’s behavior on the network. This security will also control the amount and level of changes the IT staff can make to the infrastructure of the network.
Through a thorough examination of your staffs current systems access we can design and implement a plan to minimize costly downtime while increasing security.
Technical network security protects the data that is within the network. This type of network security protection prevents data from being maliciously corrupted from within the network and any secure information from getting out without proper authorization.
Partnering with AVG amongst other security protocols we are able to minimize the exposure while protecting your business endpoints, email, and network from ransomware, spam, phishing, and Zero-Day attacks, all from a single pane of glass, with a business cybersecurity solution.
Physical network security controls are put in place to stop unauthorized personnel from accessing components of the network. For example, routers and cable cupboards can be protected by implementing Facility Management equipment to permit access to only those that require it.
Network security in networking also helps ensure that your internal infrastructure operates as it should. When an attacker is allowed access to sensitive systems due to a network security vulnerability, they can do more than simply steal customer data. They can throw a digital wrench in your operations.
As an example within the context of the traditional network security definition, consider the effect of a ransomware attack. All a hacker needs to do is get their chosen ransomware into any area of your network, and they can cut this area off, including its resources, from your system. Even if only one computer is affected, the ripple effect could pause operations for untold lengths of time and erode confidence in your organization, both internally and externally.
