Network security is paramount from your firewall* to your workstations and all the way back. There are many things that you can do to protect your network, some of which are listed below;
- Separate ISP firewall (ISP – Internet service provider)
- Web Monitor/Filter
- Local workstation firewall
- Active monitoring software
- Patch Management (updates for the software that is installed on your PC, quite often the manufacturer of the software finds defects after release which could lead to a potential security breach, therefore it is important to keep software as up to date as possible)
*A firewall is the piece of hardware that prevents intruders entering your network from the internet and is a vital part of any business network security.
