Network security is solution that combines both hardware and software to protect the entire network from unauthorised access. Most commonly seen with the deployment of virtual and physical firewalls but can also be deployed as: Data Loss Prevention, Advanced Malware Protects, Intrusion Prevention System, Application Security. All of these types of network security are deployed to prevent are certain part of the network from becoming compromised. Given that data can be extracted in many different ways, these services work together to ensure only the correct data enters and exits the network.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Consider everything on your network to be trusted and everything else in the world is untrusted. This is how network security works. From behavioural based analytics to advanced malware protection, everything is scanned in a variety of ways to determine if the request for data is legitimate and controls the flow to help ensure uptime and prevent DDOS attacks.
For organisations that have multiple layers of network security, Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) products are implemented to gather all the information your network security services are receiving. From here, it gives the security team all the information required to identify and respond to threats in a much more efficient way.
