Network security is defined as the protection of access to files and directories in a computer network against hacking, misuse and unauthorized changes to the system.
So what does this mean for you and how do you ensure your business is protected?
Network security has many elements with each as important as the next, for example:
Each machine on your network requires an adequate anti-virus program that will update regularly and remain current against all malicious threats
Each user on a computer network should only access files and applications via a secured username and password. Deploying a server or using Microsoft Azure AD provides your business with a much greater level of permission control as well as determining who can access which network folders.
A firewall is an integral part of your network security. It protects your network by controlling internal and external traffic flow on your network. It protects your network from unwanted communication ensuring your legitimate communication can flow freely.
