The Importance of Network Security in Business

Networks, including the internet, are one of the most essential things to businesses. Without computer networks, companies would be lost and would not have a way to communicate without these systems and this would cause businesses to operate slower. Starting relationships between many businesses, networks in many ways become synonymous with the groups and businesses they bring together. Business employees, customers, and business partners would have available access to their information stored in network systems, could get to their network systems and share them easily among themselves. Computer networks give their owners speed, ability to connect, and ultimately value to their users. They give possible solutions for business difficulties and issues that would not be possible to other businesses. Computer networking systems are required for electronic communications. As time moves on, businesses spend a ton of money on computer systems that are used to manage various functions such as accounting, human resources, customer service, purchasing, inventory management, etc. In a world considered perfect, companies would be able to combine all of their computer systems together both new and old. In order to ensure the security of their networks, most businesses take physical precautions: making sure their server is located in a secure environment, make sure all security features are enabled, use both hardware and software firewalls, set up a strong password and change it every 6 months, install the latest software and always using Wi-Fi has the primary means of connecting to the internet.

The use of personal computers in industry and commerce has expanded dramatically in the last decade. Large gains in employee productivity are possible as a result of this technology. However, ensuring the security of the processes and the privacy of data that these machines access is a very hard problem. Solutions that ensure security by preventing access by appropriate users are inconsistent with the gains in productivity that are possible. At JHC we use CORE as a strategy to help solve the issue, CORE stands for Cloud, O Trust, Regionalized and Elastic. CORE provides the same user experience, application functionality, hardware performance, security etc. It achieves rapid application deployment, security, performance and speed and it reduces costs. Network security is a problem that network administrators face. Threats that affect network security are vulnerabilities, spyware, spam, phishing, malware, cybercrime and misleading applications. It is something that network administrators should keep a careful eye on. For example, if the home network does not have any security measures in place, then the person is at a high risk of data loss due to hacking. Network security is something that businesses do not take very lightly because they want to protect their valuable information and network resources from hackers. It is a problem because of unauthorized use and can be resolved by increasing the security encryption levels.
