What is Network Security?

Security Information and Event Management

Imagine Your Organization Without a Network – You Can't

Thanks to the growth of cloud applications’ and a ‘stay-at-home’ workforce, networks are bigger than ever. A bigger network means a bigger attack surface and more cyber threats.

‘Network Security’ is an overarching term. It includes all the policies, practices, and technologies needed to protect the network and everything it supports. Network security guards against misuse, unauthorized access, and cyber-attacks.

Cybercriminals Will Exploit All Security Gaps

Cybercriminals have become specialists.  They have developed the in-depth knowledge, tools, and skills needed to exploit specific areas of a network.  It’s essential to close every security gap and strengthen all vulnerable areas.  There are over a dozen categories to consider when assessing your cybersecurity posture.

  • Access Control
  • Application Security
  • Behavioral Analytics / Anomaly Detection
  • Cloud Security
  • Data Loss Prevention
  • Email and Messaging Security
  • Entry Points
  • Firewalls
  • Intrusion Prevention Systems
  • Network Segmentation
  • Mobile Device Security
  • SIEMs and SOARs
  • Virtual Private Network (VPN)
  • Wireless Security

In the event of a data breach, businesses and public sector agencies face tremendous costs—and even the potential for criminal penalties—for privacy law non-compliance. A breach can also cause significant damage to a brand or to your agency’s reputation.

Consider an MDR Service

There are many complex categories to consider when assessing, designing, implementing, and maintaining a complete network security posture. Many organizations have opted to use a professional cybersecurity provider instead of implementing a DIY ‘do it yourself’ plan.  They rely on an MDR (Managed Detection and Response) provider for world-class cybersecurity.  As a bonus, MDR customers have also experienced a 50% reduction in cybersecurity costs.

A professional MDR service encompasses nearly all the processes, technologies, and techniques used to deter, detect, contain, and remediate cybersecurity threats and attacks.  This includes remote users, cloud applications, compute clouds, WANs, remote sites, and networks.
