Network Security Appliances for Business
Network security is important to all businesses, but cybercrime has become the number one reason for putting IT security tools in place. It’s estimated that cybercrime will top $6 trillion this year, requiring ever more advanced network security appliances to help thwart the attackers. There are many such kinds of tools, but here are some of the most important.
Application Security
Every piece of connected device and software interface your business utilizes serves a purpose, but also presents a doorway for hackers to come through. Keeping software and firmware current through the use of a tool such as a software appliance is essential to minimize the potential of intrusion.
eMail Security
We are all familiar with suspicious links, scams, phishing and viruses that can be embedded in emails. eMail security appliances can assist with the many daily inbound and outbound messages of a business to ensure a network is secured from both intentional and inadvertent threats.
Mobile Device Security
Would-be hackers are aware that virtually everyone carries a mobile device that can connect them to other systems they interact with. And mobile devices have their own unique vulnerabilities. Security appliances for mobile can put specialized limits and monitors on mobile connectivity within a business network, ensuring only appropriate traffic is permitted.
There are many additional types of network security appliances that address vulnerabilities in a business environment such as access control, data loss prevention, virus threats and more.
