Internet has eased a lot of lives and most of us would agree about the positive effects internet over all segments of the society. It has generated a lot of employment opportunity and also enables companies and individuals to do something they could not dream of decades ago. However, there are a few cons of it too.
Technology helps you in a lot of ways but if it is not managed properly it can turn against you and can cause a lot of damage. With the advent of the innovative technology used for the benefit of all there was also the advent of people who wanted to use it for their benefit. The problem with these people is that they only want to use it for their benefit by harming others. There is no peace in their ways.
They are hackers and companies who loot your data only to sell it to your competitors or hamper your image in the market. They not just hamper your company’s image but also steal your customer’s confidential information. Sometimes these hacks can also prove to be disastrous financially.
In order to protect you from these hackers many security companies have designed next generation firewall appliance which are made keeping in mind the next virus definitions and protocols are not easy to hack. They help you safeguard your data and business and contribute in your business continuity.
The next generation network security system comes with the following features to help you protect your business and customer information:
- Identity Tracking: With the new security firewalls the administrator gets to view all the activity of the users. He can track and see what users are doing on your server and also set up security systems in place to high risk areas.
- Controls on application: As your employees are using apps for everything more than ever, these systems come with controls on all apps and almost all apps are covered and under surveillance while your employee is on your network.
- Login controls: Your administrator is able to control login and delegate rights to your employees to access certain areas that your organisation deems confidential. Anybody who is not connected to your company cannot login to your network
- Intruder prevention: These systems come with unified network security that can track and identify any intruder on the network and block him from accessing any of your data.
Recently many big IT giants, banks and many big corporate companies have suffered hacks and as a result ended up paying huge sum of money as compensation. There is an urgent need for all major companies to upgrade and enhance their network security to make a secure E-environment and restore people’s trust in them.
After the recent incidents people have gradually started losing trust in technology and somehow feel that their information is not safe in the hands of all the companies who are digitally collecting confidential data like credit card details, bank account details and more.
