How a network refresh can improve business security
No matter the industry you work in, security is key for keeping your network running smoothly – no business is automatically safe from the threat of a cyberattack. Attackers are constantly improving the way they steal data and cause digital turmoil within businesses both large and small, which is why it’s a good idea to complete a network refresh to effectively secure data and gain control of your security.
What is a network refresh?
A network refresh is designed to make sure that all of your networking equipment is updated, supported and maintained. You don’t want to be stuck with old equipment that the original manufacturer has stopped supporting, as you may find yourself at increased risk of cyberthreats and attacks.
How can a network refresh improve my businesses security?
Malware and attacks are smart, and they change and develop as technology evolves. By keeping up to date with your network’s infrastructure, you can stay ahead of these new attack techniques and gain visibility and automation that will ensure you stay in control at all times.
There are a range of different strategies that you can adopt to prevent network intrusions, including deploying firewalls to monitor the traffic coming in and out of your network. This is proven security technology and will add an extra layer of protection to your businesses network. It is also beneficial for your business to have a management tool in place to review and manage the security of your network. Cloud security management and analytics will enable you to enforce maximum security from anywhere in the world and receive real-time updates of potential issues that may arise on your network. This will enable you to act fast and prevent any issues from escalating.
