What is Network Security?

Vault

Network security refers to any activities that are designed to protect your company's network. More specifically, these activities protect the usability, reliability, integrity, and safety of your network and data. Effective network security focuses on a variety of threats and prevents them from entering your network.

How Does KT Connections' Network Security Solution Work?

We use an All-In-One Security Solution, also known as a Unified Threat Management (UTM) device. A UTM combines all the basic IT security measures in one single device that’s placed at the gateway to the internet. Any device seeking access to the internet or anything from the internet seeking access to your devices, passes through the UTM.

With all traffic passing through the UTM, everything is filtered through its antivirus, anti-spyware, anti-spam, and firewall, preventing most of the nasty things from hitting your end users. Intrusion detection, leak prevention, and content filtering are features of the device as well.

We also do a firm assessment of your staffs responsibilities and place your employees into groups, granting permissions and internet access based on group types. As a result, you’ll be able to deter user access to certain elements that may be costly to your business. These elements can include:

  • job searches
  • social networking websites
  • microblogging websites
  • video streaming
  • distasteful content such as adult-oriented websites and file sharing sites
  • any other site that can sap productivity

If an employee went to any of these type of sites, they would instantly be denied access.

Sounds Great, but What’s the Cost?

This depends on the size of your organization, what devices you currently have, how your networked devices are accessed, and what level of control is implemented. Therefore a price can only be determined after an assessment is made for your organization.
