Network securities can be defined as policies as well as practices that are specially adapted for preventing and monitoring unauthorized access, modification, and misuse or even denial of the computer network in addition to network-accessible resources. One of the best examples of network security is none other than the antivirus system. In other words, we can say that network security is part of an organization’s strategy which assures and guarantees the security for the business assets in addition to all network traffic. It covers both hardware and software technologies.  Depending on the nature of the security an organization wants for its business selection of the network security need to be done.  There are different types of network security, popular ones are given below.

  • Network Access Control
  • Web Security
  • Email security
  • Application Security
  • Antivirus and Antimalware Software
  • Data loss prevention
  • Behavioral analytics
  • Mobile Device Security
  • Firewalls
  • Virtual Private network
  • Security Information and Event Management
  • Endpoint security
  • Wireless security

If you want to differentiate the types based on the level of control it offers then there are 3 major types.

  • Physical network security:  It is designed for the purpose of controlling the access of any unauthorized personnel from getting physical access to any of the network components.

  • Technical network security: It is designed to control and protect the data which remains stored on the network from malicious activities of any employees.

  • Administrative network security: The administrative security control is designed to offer security policies as well as processes for controlling the user behavior, the access level and how changes will be implemented by employees in the infrastructure.  

For a better idea in this regard, you need to speak to any network security experts having a great amount of experience in the industry.
