Network security systems: the best ways to reduce threats
Today, the complexity of our IT systems is a major obstacle to effective cybersecurity defense. Digital attacks come from both external networks and internal systems, and target endpoints such as laptops, servers, mobile phones, and enterprise IoT devices. Often, these attacks aim to inflict as much damage as possible by spreading far and wide.
All attacks have one thing in common – they cross our computer networks. This makes networks one of the best battlegrounds to stop, contain, or detect attacks. By using the power and ubiquity of a network, network security controls can often reduce the risk of these threats in the most cost-effective manner compared to endpoint security solutions.
