All about Network Security

img

Network security refers to the multitude of devices, processes, and technologies. In simple words, it is a set of configurations and rules that are designed for protecting the confidentiality, accessibility, and integrity of computer data and networks both for hardware and software technologies. Every company, irrespective of its industry, infrastructure or size, requires network security to some extent to protect its servers from cyber-attacks and cyber-threats.

Now a day, network design is multifaceted and faces always changing threatening environments and attackers that are looking out for ways for finding and exploiting the vulnerabilities of your company. These vulnerabilities may exist in a wide number of areas like data, users, locations, applications, and devices. Therefore, there is a wide range of management tools that are in use for network security for addressing the exploits and threats as well as regulating non-compliance. A few minute system downtimes can result in massive damage to the reputation of your organization, so it is important that you take extra protection measures for protecting your organization in the first place.

How does network security work?

There are various data types / departments in an organization that you need to consider while addressing network security concerns. Attackers can be present at any layer of the network security layers. Therefore, your network security policies, software and hardware are well-designed to cater for each layer.

Typically, there are three control levels of network security including administrative, physical and technical. Below given is a brief description of different network security types and how each area works.

Administrative network security 

Administrative network security contains security processes and policies for controlling users’ behavior, for instance how to authenticate a user or to verify their level of access and how to implement changes in IT infrastructure.

Physical network security 

Physical network security controls are intended to restrict unauthorized personnel to gain physical access to the components of a network like cabling cupboards, routers etc.

Technical network security 

Technical network security control is designed for protecting data that is stored on a network or in-transit data into, out or across the network. Data protection is two-fold; you need to protect data and interference of unauthorized personnel access to the system as well as you need to protect the network from malicious activities
