Network Security

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 using both software and hardware technologies.

What are the different types of network security devices and tools?

01
01
Access Control

This refers to controlling which users have access to the network or especially sensitive sections of the network. Using security policies, you can restrict network access to only recognized users and devices or grant limited access to noncompliant devices or guest users.

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.

05
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.

07
07
Email security.

Email is an especially important factor to consider when implementing networking security tools. Numerous threat vectors, like scams, phishing, malware, and suspicious links, can be attached to or incorporated into emails. Because so many of these threats will often use elements of personal information in order to appear more convincing,

09
Network segmentation.

Dividing and sorting network traffic based on certain classifications streamlines the job for security support personnel when it comes to applying policies. Segmented networks also make it easier to assign or deny authorization credentials for employees, ensuring no one is accessing information they should not be.

11
11
Mobile device security.

The vast majority of us have mobile devices that carry some form of personal or sensitive data we would like to keep protected. This is a fact that hackers are aware of and can easily take advantage of. Implementing mobile device security measures can limit device access to a network.

02
02
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 cyberattackers from exploiting vulnerabilities to access sensitive data.

04
04
Behavioral analytics.

In order to identify abnormal behavior, security support personnel need to establish a baseline of what constitutes normal behavior for a given customer’s users, applications, and network. Behavioral analytics software is designed to help identify common indicators of abnormal behavio.

06
06
Distributed denial of service prevention.

Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are becoming increasingly common. They function by overloading a network with one-sided connection requests that eventually cause the network to crash. A DDoS prevention tool scrubs incoming traffic to remove nonlegitimate traffic that could threaten your network.

08
08
Firewalls.

Firewalls are another common element of a network security model. They essentially function as a gatekeeper between a network and the wider internet. Firewalls filter incoming and, in some cases, outgoing traffic by comparing data packets against predefined rules and policies, thereby preventing threats from accessing the network.

Security information and event management.

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.

12
12
Web security.

Web security software serves a few purposes. First, it limits internet access for employees, with the intention of preventing them from accessing sites that could contain malware. It also blocks other web-based threats and works to protect a customer’s web gateway.

Firewall Security – How does it Work?

Designing a firewall involves the following five steps

  1. Identifying your organizational security needs. This is achieved through identifying the security requirements, assessing your security stance and then working with this information to identify your security requirements.
  2. Outline a complete security policy that involves network resources, access policies, and authorization controls. This makes it possible for the firewall to address all security needs and expectations.
  3. Defining and configuring the firewall is made easy by identifying resources, applications, and services that will be protected from any threats from external entities and insider attacks.
  4. Identify acceptable communications through an acceptable use policy that defines the different network activities that are permitted or not permitted on the LAN and the internet web services.
  5. Firewall design is made around identifying enforcement points. Firewalls are implemented at the edge of all networks and are positioned between private LAN and public networks.
