Network Perimeter Security

As your first layer of defense, network perimeter security is a key piece of your overall security architecture. In the past, network perimeter security simply meant having a network firewall. That won’t suffice in today’s enterprise.

Modern businesses have to maintain several connections with external systems while ensuring their IT infrastructures can withstand an onslaught of cyberattacks. It’s not enough to simply integrate these solutions. The biggest challenge is securing the perimeter of the network without impacting business operations.

Achieving this requires a comprehensive suite of security solutions that can include:

Next-Generation Firewall

Next Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) have now become crucial to the seamless flow of business operations. Today’s NGFWs offer industry leading capabilities, such as: antivirus protection, intrusion prevention and detection, anti-malware, and content filtering, in just one platform.

Gateway Antivirus

Properly configured gateway antivirus can be a strong first line of defense against various forms of malware. An inferior or poorly configured gateway antivirus will only give you a false sense of security. Malware should always be countered by a comprehensive, multi-layer approach.

APT Protection

The handiwork of exceptionally skilled individuals armed with sophisticated tools and techniques, an Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) is extremely hard to prevent, detect, or stop. APTs are aimed at any organization that possesses something attackers deem valuable.

DDoS Gateway Protection

Distributed Denial of Service attacks are getting bigger and more sophisticated. Notorious for having crippled several government and business networks, DDoS attacks can cost large enterprises $10,000 to $100,000 per hour. There are a few effective DDoS mitigation techniques.
