Security – Network:

Businesses face a number of challenges as they try to keep their network infrastructure secure and operational. Potential threats include distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, network-based ransomware, insider threats and password attacks, to name a few.

Securing corporate networks, meanwhile, has become all the harder with the move to remote work and the increasing use of cloud applications.

The specific technology components of a sound network security strategy include firewalls, SASE (secure access service edge) systems, network access control technology, , antivirus and antimalware software, intrusion prevention systems, and tools for cloud, application and email security.
