Four Critical Business Network Security Tools

Four Critical Business Network Security Tools

I truly hope that, despite everything that has created challenges for businesses in recent months, I don’t need to remind you of the importance of your organization’s cybersecurity. Let’s consider the solutions that you need to ensure your business remains protected throughout this crisis, as well as any others.

Your Network Security

To protect your network, you need to ensure that you have the proper solutions in place. Between network security appliances, virtual private networking (VPN) clients, and firewalls, any potential points of egress can be covered against issues.

These defenses will help to minimize the number of threats and other risk elements that enter your network.

Network Monitoring

In case any threats do manage to breach your defenses, you need to ensure that you are able to detect and identify them. By equipping whatever IT management resource you have with the tools to keep an eye on your network and its health, your security will be improved through vigilance. This is one of the best-known advantages of enlisting a managed service provider, as an MSP will take it upon themselves to proactively work to prevent threats by keeping an eye on your technology infrastructure and its health.

Mobile Device and Endpoint Management

As many people are working remotely, especially nowadays, the capability of your business to retain some control over its data is a necessity. Utilizing solutions like mobile device management and endpoint management can give you this control, enabling you to dictate the data and applications that these devices can access. This way, you can better ensure that your data is protected, and your resources are secured.

Security Training and Management

Of course, you also need to be sure that your team knows how to protect your business to the best of their ability, and that they understand how to respond to any threats that make their way in. This will require you to evaluate your team’s preparedness and test them in simulated events to ensure that they are able to protect your business. You’ll also need to figure out how to meet the compliance standards that your industry is beholden to, specifically in terms of the security that is demanded for you to uphold.

Threat Management and Detection

Finally, you need to do everything you can to minimize the amount of threats that materialize and catch those that have slipped by. Using the solutions available today, you can reduce the amount of threats that darken your door in the first place. There are also tools that can help you to locate any threats that have slipped past your defenses so that they can be mitigated.
