Enterprise Network Security Types for Futuristic Workplaces

Our world has been digitized to a large extent, resulting in changes in daily activities. The increased level of sophistication in today’s cyber-attacks have proved one fundamental thing: the traditional perimeter-centric approach of protecting your organization’s network and data is no longer enough! There is a need to safeguard business-centric information and applications from malicious sources through combined efforts of IT strategies, software and hardware.

Different Security Types
Mobile Security

Smartphones are becoming the dominant way for mobile computing. However, Internet of Things and connected devices pose a serious security threat to modern organizations. Real security needs MSPs to roll out the latest encryption solutions. ‘Pretender’ apps give hackers access to information such as credit card and banking details and additional malware can promise them access to other critical phone information.   Mobile security platforms enable to connect to your organization’s firewall through Internet gateways. This enables your employees to stay protected under security policies, even while on the go!

Endpoint Security

Because of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), the endpoints have become vulnerable to a large extent. The current endpoint security challenges involve lack of automation, false alarms, built-in remediation capabilities like terminating processes, deleting files, and rolling back system images. Fileless attacks, which are initiated by RAM residing malware is an attack vector growing at an alarming rate. As the market domain has grown, many endpoint security vendors have offered a bewildering array of tools all targeting niche vulnerability. Advanced endpoint security solutions stop cyberattacks before they begin, thus preventing lateral movement and keeping your endpoints as secure as possible. Endpoint security involves prevention, detection and response. It’s not reactive, it’s predictive!

Cloud Security

Cloud security enables you to analyze your cloud data usage and enforce the correct permissions for your cloud’s data access, keeping your business information integrity always secure! In 2018 organizations take advantage of high-performance the cloud guarantees. Businesses that want to simplify operations will move more aggressively toward integrating SaaS, IaaS, and/or PaaS into their processes.  As cyber attackers become more sophisticated, security analysts in government, public, and private sectors will also have to become more sophisticated and timely in their methods for detecting and preventing attacks. Businesses recognize the validity of investing in security information and event management (SIEM) and malware detection software. Cloud managed security service providers offer robust services to businesses that cannot implement full security measures themselves.

Storage Security

Cyber threat prevalence is making it difficult for businesses to securely store data.  Recent research states that the SDS market is projected to grow at a compound 14% from 2018 to 2021. User-friendly data storage will continue to win over complex data, as more non-technical users are increasingly expected to self-service their data. The adoption of encryption for data at rest will increase by 50% in 2018 as a way of future-proofing storage. Storage providers will be looking at more efficient data storage to handle the learning process curve.

Network Security

With reports on evolution of computer virus strains we will see a rise in attacks and so businesses need to be prepared. We see an increase in the quantity and quality of innovative solutions enterprises are expected to treat internal network threat detection. New mobile OS, growing BYOD, and Software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery make securing networks a challenge. We’re seeing speedy network connections, more remote users, and extensive upgrades to mobile networks.

Data Loss Security

Hackers always target critical systems like power grids. Should the victim not pay the ransom within time, the perpetrators may choose to shut down the grid. There is a growing concern about stolen identities so multifactor authenticate will take center stage. Deception technologies exist, which work by imitating a company’s critical assets, act as a trap for attackers looking to steal critical data. There will also be an increase in the use of solutions which can detect and respond to anomalous behavior.

Server Security

Server security cannot be an afterthought and must be implemented from the start alongside the services and applications you are providing. Forcing your applications to function correctly without addressing the security needs in advance could have devastating consequences. Setting up SSH key authentication means there are significantly more possible combinations that an attacker would have to run through. Internal services can be made completely inaccessible to the outside world with the help of firewalls. Using a VPN can easily map a private network that only your servers can see.

In a world where businesses rely more and more on the Internet and computer networks are growing at an exponential rate, business networks can face severe threats from bugs, viruses and hackers at any time! Enterprise security is something that companies should take very seriously.  The reasons may be different for the attacks on the network however the end result is the loss of data and goodwill for big organizations along with a loss of business if you are storing data that is critical to your business.
