What Is Network Security?
Network Security refers to any action taken to protect your network from threats. This ensures usability, integrity, reliability and safety of your network and data by targeting threats and stopping them before entering your computer network. So what do these threats include? A majority of network security threats today are spread over the Internet with the most common ones being viruses, worms, Trojan horses, spyware, adware and hacker attacks.
Network Security gives you a single solution with multiple layers of security so if one fails, the others still stand. This is accomplished through both hardware and software integration from the likes of anti-virus, anti-spyware, firewall, intrusion prevention system (IPS) and virtual private networks (VPNs). When your network infrastructure is secure, you can truly work with confidence and ensure all your data, applications and operating system are safe and operating at peak performance.
What Are My Network Security Costs?
When it comes to technology, your true costs go beyond hardware that need fixing. Downtime is a cost that many small business owners might not take into account when it comes to IT expenses. When your technology breaks, or is simply not performing at utmost efficiency, you’re not making the most out of your investment and your time. This, in the long run, affects your profits.
Network Security ensures the backbone of your business is secure and operating seamlessly. This means your hardware, software, data and critical applications are connected and running at peak efficiency, allowing you to simplify work processes, boost productivity and avoid online threats that could lead to downtime and expensive repairs. This, in turn, lower costs and maximizes profits.
What Are My Benefits With Network Security

With multi-layer protection, your employees will be able to work securely from any location, whether they’re at home, in the office or on the beach. This encourages collaboration and facilitates communication with clients and suppliers by offering secure network access which boosts clients’ confidence by letting them know their sensitive information is protected.
