What is network security?
Network security creates layers of protection from inside and outside your network. These layers require authentication and have security checks to protect your network. Authorized users gain access to network resources, but people with malicious intent are blocked from carrying out exploits and threats.
Why do I need security?
The digital age has revolutionized our world. How we live, work, play, and learn have all changed. Each and every organization that wants to deliver the information and service that customers and employees demand must protect its network. Network security is a must when you need to protect proprietary information from attack. It’s your company’s reputation that is on the line should your network be breached.
TYPES OF NETWORK SECURITY
Firewalls build a barrier between your trusted internal network and untrusted outside networks, such as the Internet. They have defined rules to allow or block traffic. A firewall can be hardware, software, or both. Ulterius offers the only true Unified Threat Management (UTM), or as we like to call it Ultimate Threat Management. Our FDN (flat data network) is threat-focused and has the next generation of firewall as well as all enterprise level services.
Intrusion prevention/detection systems
Ulterius’ Dynamic application recognition abased UTM automatically maps known application attacks to its DDOS protection scheme. IPS An intrusion prevention system (IPS) scans network traffic to actively block attacks. Ulterius SB (Smart Broadband) come with IPS correlating huge amounts of global threat intelligence to not only block malicious activity but also track the progression of suspect files and malware across the network to prevent the spread of outbreaks and reinfection.
IDS Though they both relate to network security, IDS differs from IPS in that IPS looks outwardly for intrusions in order to stop them from happening. Firewalls limit access between networks to prevent intrusion and do not signal an attack from inside the network. An IDS evaluates a suspected intrusion once it has taken place and signals an alarm. An IDS also watches for attacks that originate from within a system. This is traditionally achieved by examining network communications, identifying heuristics and patterns (often known as signatures) of common
computer attacks, and taking action to alert operators.
A virtual private network encrypts the connection from an endpoint to a network, often over the Internet. Typically, a remote-access VPN uses IPsec or Secure Sockets Layer to authenticate the communication between device and network. Ulterius provides site to site, client to site, and VPN pass through ability for networks that use virtualized network security applications.
Wireless networks are by their nature open and not secure. Without stringent security measures, installing a wireless LAN can be like putting Ethernet ports everywhere, even the parking lot. To prevent somebody exploiting the open network, you need products specifically designed to protect a wireless network. in addition to 802.1x based security, Ulterius’ WLAN controller maps IDS/IPS parameters to systems UTM parameters, creating a true zero trust network environment. With Ulterius, your network will be one of the most secure.
It’s probably a given that you don’t want everyone to have access to your network. To keep out potential attackers, you need to identify each user and each device. Then you can enforce your security protocols. You can block noncompliant endpoint devices or give them only limited access. This process is network access control (NAC). Ulterius UTM combines NAT&PAT features in a dynamically mapped environment to better protect against scan based attacks.
