Network Security protects your network and data from breaches, intrusions and other threats. This is a vast and overarching term that describes hardware and software solutions as well as processes or rules and configurations relating to network use, accessibility, and overall threat protection.
Network Security involves access control, virus and antivirus software, application security, network analytics, types of network-related security (endpoint, web, wireless), firewalls, VPN encryption and more.
When we advice a company to invest in IT Security solutions, the quick start with good EPP and EDR will be advised to run a NDR (Network Detection and Response) solution also. Together you will have direct access and information 24×7 on your endpoints and network. When something happens, you will know and be able to find the source and paths to take actions on. But in most cases when you have the right solutions, they will block the threat instantly.
