Network Infrastructure Security refers to the process of protecting data integrity. Network security can range from firewalls to antimalware, to simple password protection. We’ve developed a list of items that every business should have in place if you secure outbound to inbound traffic. Let’s start with the necessary equipment:
Firewalls are a must. They provide unauthorized access protection to your network. Firewalls filter the information passed through them, allowing only approved content through. They can also be very complex to administer throughout an organization, and are often times the main culprit when a new application you are running on your network doesn’t work. CTG offers network monitoring and management of your firewalls and networks so you don’t have to.
Antivirus and Malware:
These programs protect your network from hacking and viruses, and dangerous spyware which can steal private company or customer data. Choosing strong antivirus software is one of the easiest ways to protect your systems and improve your network security, but there are many options available. And these programs only work as well as the updates and scans your devices have…Antivirus and Malware software should be scheduled to scan your network weekly to detect any potential threats. CTG offers solutions for device management and monitoring, ensuring your systems are up to date.
