What Is Network Security?

Network security refers to any devices or activities put in place to protect your network. These implementations protect the reliability, integrity, and security of your network.

Every day computer networks are faced with new threats, including spyware, malware, viruses, and hacker attempts.  Having an effective network security solution in place will target these threats and prevent them from entering or spreading on your network.

Network security is accomplished with both hardware and software.  Some of the most common tools are:

  • Firewalls, to block unwanted access to your network.
  • Antivirus software, to help deter against spyware & malware installing on PCs and servers.
  • Virtual Private Networks (VPN), to provide secure, remote access to your network from the outside.

Securing your network will provide both your business and your customers with a peace of mind, knowing that valuable data is being protected from outside threats.
