The purpose of security, when it comes to a communication network and its subsequent parts, is simply to protect it from unauthorized access. This prevents misuse, promotes protection and creates comfort and confidence that information and systems are safe and secure within your network.
Next Generation Firewall
Firewalls are systems designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a network. Firewalls check messages and information entering or leaving the intranet, examining each piece of data, and blocking those that fail to meet specific security criteria. Next Generation Firewalls, filter traffic based on the applications or traffic types with specific ports. This helps in detecting application specific attacks, making them stronger than traditional firewalls. A Next Generation Firewall combines the capabilities of first-generation firewalls, network intrusion prevention systems (IPS), SSL and SSH inspection, reputation-based malware filtering and Active Directory integration support. These systems altogether create an incredibly resilient and nearly impenetrable system of security.
Mobile Device Management
Mobile Device Management is utilized by organizations to manage and secure mobile devices that are connected to a given network, and have remote access to it. Mobile Device Management can be implemented on company and employee owned devices too. Remote and employee owned devices can be secured by using the endpoint management system in tandem with Mobile Device Management.
Endpoint Management protects networks from threats directed to remote devices that connect to the given network. This includes mobile devices, tablets, and laptops. An endpoint is a potential entry point to a given network through a remote device that is in use. Endpoint management stops this from happening by enacting a specific system of security that secures every endpoint on the network.
