Boost Your Network’s Security with These 4 Tools

Boost Your Network’s Security with These 4 Tools

Network security can be tough; there’s a lot to know, and you often need to have trained professionals on your side to ensure your systems are as secure as possible. With the right solutions on your side, however, it can be made much more manageable. Let’s discuss some of the most important security features your organization should implement and why.

Unified Threat Management

A UTM is an umbrella term that describes a comprehensive security appliance. A UTM typically includes a content filter, spam blocker, and antivirus software, among other solutions. It’s designed to protect you from the plethora of threats out there through the implementation of a singular hardware-based tool. It’s one security measure that your organization definitely does not want to be without.

Mobile Device Management

With so many people still working remotely or from a hybrid setting, managing your team’s mobile devices and their access to important data is an incredibly important thing to work toward. Mobile device management tools can be used to control user permissions and access to data, as well as whitelisting and blacklisting applications.

Permissions, Access Control, and Monitoring

It’s important that your company understand how permissions, access control, and monitoring work in tandem to protect your company’s assets. In essence, your team should have permissions for only the data they need to fulfill their day-to-day duties, and you should actively monitor who is accessing which parts of your infrastructure.

Virtual Private Networks

VPNs create encrypted tunnels between your network and devices that want to access its data. This protects data from being intercepted or observed while it’s traveling to and from your device. They are particularly valuable for any worker who spends time working outside the protections of your in-house network, and in today’s world of remote and hybrid workflows, they are extremely important.
