Take a holistic approach to protecting your network by making sure you always have the right policies and processes in place

 
 
 
 

What is network security?

Like infrastructure security, network security is all about making sure the network all your apps and users sit on is as protected as it can be – giving you that extra failsafe. 

Network security achieves this by constantly checking and adjusting your processes and policies to prevent, detect and monitor unauthorised access to your network. 

IT uses firewalls to enforce those policies (which services are allowed to be accessed by network users, for example), along with antivirus software and an intrusion prevention system for extra layers of protection.

Why is network security important?

Network security is all about stopping hackers and malicious applications gaining control over your routing infrastructure. 

And every app, system or user who uses your network is a potential entry point to be exploited. 

Without protecting your underlying network infrastructure, you’re leaving your whole organisation wide open to attack by potentially letting a cybercriminal loose on your network.
