Firewall Network Security Issues
Do you know what security issues can be prevented with network security?
Security comes in many ways when it comes to making your network secure, you can rely on passwords, but, rather than depending upon passwords that can be cracked or forgotten, biometric authentication relies upon unique physical properties to distinguish or authenticate a person. It is one matter to do a computer forensic investigation or execute incident response for the purpose of discovering who altered a file or what made a system crash, and another thing to have a better proof of who did it. With the right firewall you can filter, monitor and report on the web usage each employee has in real time. You can as well block content – block by extension and other media types. There are as well multi-function network firewall with anti-virus, VPN, web content filtering, bandwidth control and more.
Some of the issues that can occur if you´re not using firewall software for your network are:
- Open Web
- Unknown activity
- Security risks
Many work stations have restrictions on what pages employees can watch over the internet, how much time they can surf on the web and what programs can be used. For example, while some companies require MSN for their daily operation, other companies prefer to work without the program. With the right firewall you can custom categories and easily create “allow-only” white lists, these are the list that are going to be allowed by the operator.
One of the great advantages of a good firewall for your network is that you can have a report for each one of your employees, have a real-time visibility and control you need for your network while cutting down expenses and raising availability.
You can centrally control complete protection for networks. Firewall enables network-driven organizations to operate, manage and scale their networks, and supplies intelligent automation, calibration, and scalable device management. It assists as an abstraction layer to the underlying network by interpreting device information – irrespective of the vendor, type, model and operating system into XML based device models. It also plays a control plane through which all network devices are configured, provisioned and altered in a policy compliant manner.
A network security scanner can scan and audit your network computers for exposures, vulnerabilities and information enumerations. An appropriate firewall protects your computer from phishing, adware, scams, viruses, spyware, security risks and objectionable content, it can scan your network and ports to find, assess and adjust security vulnerabilities with minimal administrative effort. Hide your computer identity from hackers, stops hacker attacks automatically, and blocks transmission of private data.
