Firewall to Secure your Network

1. Firewall

Implement a corporate firewall as your first line of defense. Firewalls are configured with specific criteria to block or prevent unauthorized access to a network. They work as filters for your network traffic by blocking incoming packets of information that are viewed as unsafe. Firewalls can be configured to filter by several variables: IP address, domain name, protocol, port or even specific words or phrases, based on your business’ specific needs.

Be sure that your users have a corporate Antivirus (AV) solution in place. We recommend a solution that is managed allowing AV definition updates to be pushed out to all devices, automatically, when connecting to your corporate Network. Users that connect to your network from home should be mandated to use the same AV solution too.

Remote Network Monitoring to Secure your Network

5. Remote Networking Monitoring

Your network should be monitored remotely and configured to notify your IT administrator proactively in the event a threat is detected. Being able to address issues quickly can greatly minimize the severity of an attack, downtime that can occur, and the recovery time involved in restoring data.  Remote monitoring and management solutions not only allow you to detect threats that occur, but they also monitor the health of your physical network (Server health, drive failures, firewall/ISP connections, switches, and PCs).
