Security is a very, very, very important thing for your network to have.
One of the most important types of security you should have is network security. This security will work to protect the usability and integrity of your network and data. Network security works by identifying and targeting a variety of threats, then stops them from entering your network. It’s like your own personal, protection wall.
There are various types of network security, such as:
This is when you control who can and can’t access your network. You do this by identifying which devices and users are allowed into your network. From there, you can enforce various security policies such as blocking certain devices and controlling what someone can do within your network. You can also utilize behavioral analytic tools to identify what normal and abnormal behavior is. Once you do that, you can set it up where you’ll get notifications whenever something is acting abnormally.
Similarly, you can implement firewalls, which is when you put a barrier between your internal network and untrusted outside networks, such as the internet. This way, you can also control your staff’s web use and block any threats or dangerous websites.
Application security is exactly how it sounds – security that protects your applications. This type of security is important to have because no app is created perfectly… they can have a lot of holes or weaknesses where a hacker can enter. A lot of your business operations and devices may run on applications, so this type of security is a must-have.
This software is used to protect against malware, which includes anything from viruses, Trojans, ransomware, or spyware. Besides the obvious reasons, malware can be very dangerous because sometimes, it can will stay calm within your network for days and weeks, just sitting there ready to spring up and attack. Antivirus and antimalware software deal with this threat by scanning for malware entry and tracking files afterward to find any that may have slipped in and are laying low.
Here’s a big one. Your email is pretty important for your business, and considering that email gateways are the number one threat for a security breach, email security is an absolute vital one to have. Attackers can use your personal information to do all kinds of damage, such as blackmail or emailing on your behalf to deceive your clients and send them to sites full of malware. An email security application can help block these attacks and control what is sent out.
Here’s another big one. The mobile office movement is gaining momentum, and with that comes wireless networks and access points. However, wireless networks are not as secure as wired ones, allowing more room for hacker entry, so the power of wireless security needs to be strong.
