Network Security Solutions

Proxar IT Consulting offers expert network security solutions for data centres and business offices in the UK. A “secure network” is considered to be a moving target. As new vulnerabilities and new methods of attack are discovered, a relatively unsophisticated user can potentially launch a devastating attack against an unprotected network.

Why network security is a necessity to your business?

Network attacks are evolving in their sophistication and in their ability to evade detection. Also, attacks are becoming more targeted and have greater financial consequences for their victims.

Types of threats:

Internal:

  • Inside users already have knowledge of the network and its available resources.
  • Normal 0 false false false EN-GB X-NONE X-NONE /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"; mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman";} Inside users typically have some level of network security access granted because of the nature of their job
  • Traditional network security mechanisms such as Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) and firewalls are ineffective against much of the network misuse originating internally and require specific network security solutions.

External Threats:

  • It is most likely that external attackers do not have an intimate knowledge of a network, and because they do not already possess access credentials, their attacks tend to be more technical in nature.
  • DoS\DDoS Attacks.
  • The average financial loss from a computer crime/security incidents increased from $168,000 in 2006 to $350,424 in 2007.
  • 18% of those attacks were “targeted” attacks (i.e. an attack that is not targeting the general population.”
  • Before 2007, viruses were the leading contributor to financial losses for seven years in a row.
