What is network security?
Any effort aimed at ensuring the usability and integrity of your network and data is considered network security.
A network security audit from our team at DigiAlert examines all of your network systems to ensure that any possible security issues are addressed. Servers, routers, workstations, and gateways must all be examined to ensure that they are secure and safe, and that no sensitive data is being shared. There are also personnel aspects to consider because users are linked to the network. Users are frequently the most dangerous threat to a network's security, whether purposefully or accidentally.
What is the process of network security?
Multiple layers of protections at the edge and throughout the network make up network security. Policies and controls are implemented at each network security layer. Access to network resources is granted to authorised users, but bad actors are prevented from carrying out attacks and threats.
What are the advantages of network security for me?
Our world has changed as a result of digitization. Everything about how we live, work, play, and learn has altered. Every company that wants to provide the services that its consumers and workers expect must safeguard their network. Network security also aids in the protection of confidential information. In the end, it safeguards your reputation.
What are the different types of network security that DigiAlert offers?
Firewalls serve as a barrier between your trusted internal network and untrustworthy external networks like the Internet. They accept or prohibit traffic based on a set of rules. A firewall might be hardware, software, or a combination of the two. DigiAlert offers threat-focused next-generation firewalls and unified threat management (UTM) devices.
Email gateways are the most common source of security breaches. To trick consumers and drive them to sites hosting malware, attackers employ personal information and social engineering approaches to create complex phishing operations. To avoid the loss of critical data, an email security solution stops incoming threats and regulates outgoing communications.
Antivirus and malware
Viruses, worms, Trojan horses, ransomware, and spyware are all examples of "malware," which is short for "malicious software." Malware may enter a network and then remain inactive for days or even weeks. Antimalware systems that are effective not only check for malware upon arrival, but also track files later to look for abnormalities, delete malware, and repair damage.
Software-defined segmentation divides network traffic into distinct categories, making it easier to enforce security regulations. The classifications should ideally be based on endpoint identity rather than IP addresses. You may grant access privileges based on role, geography, and other factors to ensure that the correct individuals have the proper degree of access.
Your network should not be accessible to everyone. You must recognise each user and device to keep out possible attackers. Then you may put your security policies in place. Noncompliant endpoint devices might be blocked or given limited access. This is referred to as network access control.
Whether your IT staff produces it or you buy it, all software you need to operate your business has to be safeguarded. Unfortunately, any programme might have security flaws that attackers may use to get access to your network. The technology, software, and methods you utilise to plug those gaps are referred to as application security.
To detect anomalous network activity, you must first understand what constitutes normal activity. Behavioural analytics software detects acts that are out of the ordinary automatically. Your security team will be able to see indications of compromise that may indicate a problem and respond rapidly to attacks.
How do we perform network security analysis?
Depending on the size of the firm and whether or not it employs IT staff, a Network Security Audit can be undertaken by internal or external auditors. Even if you have IT staff, there are strong reasons to have an external audit.
Internal auditors may have personal motivations for skipping a step or two in order to keep offering whatever network benefits they require. Administrators, for example, have constructed backdoor programmes in the past to provide themselves access in the case of a termination. Alternatively, you may just create a new account with administrative privileges without informing anyone. They may also have less innocent motives for compromising network security, such as allowing simpler and sometimes less secure remote access to the network so they can quickly handle issues from home.

How can DigiAlert help you with network security assessment?
Things change—and they change rapidly. As your company grows, it's likely that you'll continue to add new gear to your offices, as well as additional office locations. You'll almost certainly need to add new software to your company at some time.
The problem is that when you add new gear to your company, you're also adding new security endpoints, which might lead to new security vulnerabilities. New software applications, whether they operate on individual devices or in the "cloud" as a SaaS service, might create new security risks.
When compared to the cost, reputational damage, and irritation of a significant data breach, the time and effort spent on a thorough network security assessment is far preferable.
