Enabling robust, sustainable network infrastructure and application security
What is Network Security?
Network Security consists of a set of technologies, rules, policies, processes, configurations or practices designed to detect, monitor and protect the integrity, confidentiality and accessibility of computer networks, network-accessible resources and data using both software and hardware technologies. Network security involves the authorization of access to an organization's network, as well as the prevention of unauthorized access, misuse, modification, or denial of a computer or organization network. Effective strategies include multiple layers of defense that are automated and scalable.
Why is Network Security Important?
Connectivity and the information revolution have transformed organizational efficiency over the last three decades, with massive benefits to society. But with these developments comes new risks, and effective cybersecurity is critical to your organization's sustainable growth: malware, ransomware, hacking and social engineering, are increasing year on year. Failure to protect properly against these risks can lead to huge reputational damage, large fines under rules such as GDPR, and massive business interruption, sometime leading to complete business failure.
Robust organizational cybersecurity requires a layered approach, using in-house IT teams backed up by external specialists. Key components include network infrastructure penetration testing for both office and operational / manufacturing sites, web application testing, and powerful, engaging training for staff, who are a growing target and weak link in cyber defense.
