Network security is any system, device, or action designed to protect the safety and reliability of a network and its data. 

Organizations invest in network security to protect their internet-connected systems and networks from cyber criminals or a network virus.

The focus of network security is generally targeted at protecting files, documents, and information from those types of attacks. This is commonly done through authentication in the form of a username and password, but it can also employ other tools like firewalls, antivirus programs, and virtual private networks (VPNs) to protect the network’s information. 

The benefits of network security are substantial such as enhancing client and consumer confidence, and it protects your business from the reputational and legal fallout of a security breach.

There’s also the compliance issue. These days, network security isn’t necessarily “just an option” for organizations. Effective network security helps a business stay compliant with governmental and business regulations, thus avoiding potentially stiff fines in the event of a data breach.

There’s also the “big picture” benefit of network security that’s often overlooked by organizations. In reality, effective network security allows for a more modern workplace by allowing employees to work securely from any location using VPN.

In other words, solid network security encourages collaboration by providing options to enable the future of work as well as setting the foundation to scale with a growing business.
