Monitoring the access and use of network accessible resources that are controlled by the administrators is the basis of network security. Authorizing access to data and maintaining the security of your network is important in residential and commercial operations. Our team ensures that access to your private network is limited and authorized. Threats to your security are automatically blocked and denied access until the network administrator authorizes the access. Our network security service puts the power in your hands, so that you have complete control of who has access to your network and who does not.
Our authentication process begins simply by establishing usernames and passwords for different levels of access including administrators, users and guest users. Additionally, we offer you extended options for two-factor authentication such as assigning a dongle or other security key. For particularly sensitive information, we even suggest a three-factor authentication process which involves a registered fingerprint or retinal scan for each user.
A firewall is a device used in network security that has the ability to monitor the activity of network traffic. It decides whether or not activity is allowed or blocked based on security rules. Different types of firewalls are created for the different defenses that are needed to block unwanted and potentially damaging traffic. A traditional firewall monitors the activity within a connection from the time it begins to the time that it ends using filtration methods set by the administrator. A unified threat management firewall may also integrate the use of antivirus software and cloud monitoring. Next generation firewalls and firewalls that are threat focused are enhanced even further by staying a step ahead of current traffic and sensing patterns that may lead to intrusion or intrusions of a specific type.
The type of security management that your network will require depends on many factors such as the size of your network and the sensitivity of the data within it. Verifying all users connected to the network is only the first step. Every other security measure that follows is based on your specific needs. You may require consistent monitoring, or monitoring against certain types of malicious attacks.
Typically, there are two ways that networks can be attacked. Passive attacks occur when an intruder intercepts data and active attacks are when that intruder initiates commands to disrupt the network. Both of these attacks are ways in which intruders can steal your information and use it against you or your network. There are a variety of ways that these attacks are carried out including encryption and traffic analysis as well as the use of viruses, eavesdropping, modifying data, phishing and other forms of cyber attack.
