Network Security

How exposed is your network to attack?

Network security is the practice of preventing and protecting

Network security is the protection of the layers of security to data, files, and directories against unauthorized access that could lead to data theft or misuse. Cybercrime is one of the fastest-growing forms of criminal activity.

Network Security Definition

Network security is a broad term that covers a multitude of technologies, devices, and processes. In its simplest term, it is a set of rules and configurations designed to protect the integrity, confidentiality, and accessibility of computer networks and data.

As a managed services provider (MSP), it’s more important than ever to ensure you’re providing your customers with the best network security possible. Unfortunately, hackers and cyberattacks are persistent and devious, which means you must proactively leverage networking security tools to establish and maintain an effective line of defense.

Learn the Components of a Network

There are several essential components in a network:


Antivirus and anti-malware software

Malware, or “malicious software,” is a common form of cyberattack that comes in many different shapes and sizes. Some variations work quickly to delete files or corrupt data, while others can lie dormant for long periods of time and quietly allow hackers a back door into your systems.


Application security

Each device and software product used within your networking environment offers a potential way in for hackers. For this reason, it is important that all programs be kept up-to-date and patched to prevent cyberattacks from exploiting vulnerabilities to access sensitive data. Application security refers to the combination of hardware, software, and best practices you use to monitor issues and close gaps in your security coverage.


Data loss prevention

Data loss prevention (DLP) technologies are those that prevent an organization’s employees from sharing valuable company information or sensitive data—whether unwittingly or with ill intent—outside the network. DLP technologies can prevent actions that could potentially expose data to bad actors outside the networking environment, such as uploading and downloading files, forwarding messages, or printing.
