What is Meant by Network Security?


Network security term refers to any activity designed to protect the usability and integrity of networks and data. It is defined as the protection of the access to files and directories in a computer network against hacking, misuse and unauthorized changes to the system.

Effective network security manages access to the network in order to stop threats from getting into your network. It includes both hardware and software technologies.

The Types of Network Security:

  • (DDoS) Distributed denial of service attack prevention
  • Firewalls
  • Email gateways
  • Intrusion prevention/detection system (IPS/IDS)
  • Security information and event management (SIEM) systems
  • Network access control (NAC)
  • Virtual private networks (VPNs)

Network Security can be made up of hardware devices, specialized software, physical security, and rules for people to follow.

Security Controls (such as documented processes) and countermeasures (such as firewalls) must be implemented as one of these main security control types:

  • Preventative
  • Detective
  • Responsive

If you’re working over the internet, it’s essential to protect your business and your clients’ data. Network Security system is the solution to keep your data secure and protected.
