Attackers can try to intercept the data going through the network, or even actively disrupt the network’s normal operation.

Network security is not rocket science – it just needs a bit of dedication and discipline. Network protection creates a secure platform for your other assets – servers, computers, and software – so that users can safely get on with their daily work.

The most important steps in securing your network are to limit what connections and workstations are allowed to do, and to monitor for anything that breaks those limitations.

The basics of network defense are built upon the following layers:

  • Limit access even inside the local network
  • Update all hosts, servers, and network equipment
  • Have only the necessary services visible
  • Monitor the network
  • Perform regular audits
