What are secure networks
iwebhost views “Network security”as measures designed to protect the usability and integrity of your network and data. It includes both hardware and software technologies. Effective network security manages access to the network. It targets a variety of threats and stops them from entering or spreading on your network.
How does your business benefit from secure networks?
The information technology age has transformed our world. How we live, work, play, and learn have all changed. The risks and threats in our world have also changed. Every organization that wants to deliver the services that customers and employees demand must protect its network. Network security also helps you protect proprietary information from attack. Ultimately it protects your reputation and your vital infomation.
How do we do it?
iwebhost provides access control hardware and software to uphold access control policies .Not every user should have access to your network. To keep out potential attackers, you need to recognize each user and each device. Then you can enforce your security policies. You can block non-compliant endpoint devices or give them only limited access. This process is network access control (NAC).
Antivirus and antimalware software
iwebhost supplies antimalware and antivirus products to secure and defend your network and computer from threats . “Malware,” short for “malicious software,” includes viruses, worms, Trojans, ransomware, and spyware. Sometimes malware will infect a network but lie dormant for days or even weeks. The best antimalware programs not only scan for malware upon entry, but also continuously track files afterward to find anomalies, remove malware, and fix damage.
iwebhost sees more than just the network , your software and apps have to be secure. Any software you use to run your business needs to be protected, whether your IT staff builds it or whether you buy it. Unfortunately, any application may contain holes, or vulnerabilities, that attackers can use to infiltrate your network. Application security encompasses the hardware, software, and processes you use to close those holes.
Intrusion prevention systems
An intrusion prevention system (IPS) scans network traffic to actively block attacks. iwebhost provides Next-Generation IPS (NGIPS) appliances do this by correlating huge amounts of global threat intelligence to not only block malicious activity but also track the progression of suspect files and malware across the network to prevent the spread of outbreaks and reinfection.
