- Large corporations often have very complex firewalls in place to protect their extensive networks.
- On the outbound side, firewalls can be configured to prevent employees from sending certain types of emails or transmitting sensitive data outside of the network.
- On the inbound side, firewalls can be programmed to prevent access to certain websites (like social networking sites).
- Additionally, firewalls can prevent outside computers from accessing computers inside the network.
- A company might choose to designate a single computer on the network for file sharing and all other computers could be restricted.
- There is no limit to the variety of configurations that are possible when using firewalls.
- Extensive configurations typically need to be handled and maintained by highly trained IT specialists, however.
Intrusion detection is the process of monitoring the events occurring in your network and analyzing them for signs of possible incidents, violations, or imminent threats to your security policies. Intrusion prevention is the process of performing intrusion detection and then stopping the detected incidents. These security measures are available as intrusion detection systems (IDS) and intrusion prevention systems (IPS), which become part of your network to detect and stop potential incidents.
Protection Service for Business is the best, most comprehensive endpoint security package on the market. It's designed from the ground up to solve challenging business security needs, without significant maintenance or management overhead.
It protects all your devices against all threats, like ransomware and data breaches. And it includes security for Windows and Mac computers, iOS and Android smartphones, a variety of server platforms, and password protection.
Enterprise networks regularly see change in their devices, software installations and file content. These modifications can create risk for the organization. Fortunately, companies can mitigate this risk by implementing foundational security controls.
For example, enterprises can monitor their important files for change using file integrity monitoring (FIM). This security measure enables IT security teams to determine when files change, how they change, who changed them, and what can be done to restore them if those modifications are unauthorized.
Organizations can also use foundational controls to monitor for vulnerabilities potentially introduced by the addition of new physical and virtual devices. FIM won’t do the job, however. To obtain an accurate assessment of risk, minimize security threats and maintain compliance, companies should turn to vulnerability management.
