Business Network Security
What is Network Security?
Network security is any and everything that is designed to help protect your network from unauthorized intruders and malicious activity. Protecting unauthorized intruders will protect the reliability, integrity, safety, and usability of your network and data. With business network security, it's easy to identify these intruders and malicious activities and put a stop it before they enter the network, spread throughout the network, and cause further problems.
What Are the Potential Threats to Your Network?
Networks face a multitude of threats on a daily basis and unless your network is properly protected it could become susceptible to the following:
- Viruses, Worms, and Trojan Horses
- Data Interference and Theft
- Denial of Service Issues
- Zero-Day Attacks
- Identity Theft
- Spyware and Adware
Benefits of Network Security to Businesses
The benefits that a business receives from network security are endless. Network security protects a business from any outside threats becoming a problem for the businesses employees, customers, and vendors. Small and medium sized businesses often can't afford the luxury of the IT support made available to the big businesses, but this is becoming less true as the science of security becomes more advanced and the cost of defending outside threats is reduced. Protecting your network will also cause your workforce to become more productive while simultaneously allowing the company to meet mandatory regulatory compliance with state and federal agencies. A major advantage to network security is gaining the trust of the customer and the privacy assurance received.
