Securing the data on your network may not seem very important to you until you lose your data or the privacy of your data content because you have no security on your network.
Network data security should be a high priority when considering a network setup due to the growing threat of hackers trying to infect as many computers possible. For corporations, security is important to prevent industry sabotage and espionage. Imagine what can happen if there is a network integrity breach at a bank, stock exchange, or other financial data base.
There are many tools, utilities and applications that are available to help you secure your networks. Other concerns about network security revolve around user traffic. Too many users downloading large amounts of data (e.g. watching video) on a network can cause stability problems.
Companies like Barracuda have a wide range of products and is one of many leaders in industry in Data/IT security.
Other tools and devices that can comprise of your network can include: routers; firewalls;cable or DSL modems; printers; video game consoles; smartphones and voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) phones. Depending upon the protocols your system uses, you may have even more devices linked to your network. From a security standpoint, two main components that can provide security are firewalls and routers. Firewalls come in two varieties: hardware and software.
Internet firewalls have been around for a hundred years-in Internet time. Firewalls can help protect against some attacks, but certainly not all. Firewalls can be very effective at what they do. The people who set up and use them must have the knowledge of how they work, and also be aware of what they can and cannot protect.
Firewalls can prevent malicious attacks and reduce the risk of identity theft. While no network is ever 100% immune to attack, having a reliable network security system in place will greatly reduce the risk of a security breach that can compromise your system.
