Virtualized security, or security virtualization, refers to security solutions that are software-based and designed to work within a virtualized IT environment. This differs from traditional, hardware-based network security, which is static and runs on devices such as traditional firewalls, routers, and switches.
Server security covers the processes and tools used to protect the valuable data and assets held on an organization’s servers, as well as to protect the server’s resources. Due to the sensitive information they hold, servers are frequently targeted by cybercriminals looking to exploit weaknesses in server security for financial gain.
Client End security refers to securing endpoints, or end-user devices like desktops, laptops, and mobile devices. Endpoints serve as points of access to an enterprise network and create points of entry that can be exploited by malicious actors.
Client End security software protects these points of entry from risky activity and/or malicious attack. When companies can ensure endpoint compliance with data security standards, they can maintain greater control over the growing number and type of access points to the network.
Endpoint protection is the process of stopping unauthorized agents and campaigns from targeting endpoints or access points of end-user computers such as desktops, notebooks, and handheld devices. Cybersecurity risks are secured by endpoint security services on a network or the internet. Endpoint security has advanced from antivirus tools to robust defenses against complex ransomware and new zero-day attacks.
Nation-states, hackers, organized crime, and deliberate and unintended insider attacks pose a danger to companies of all sizes. Endpoint security is often referred to as cybersecurity’s frontline, and it is one of the first areas that companies look to protect their networks.
Threat management, or cyber threat management, is a framework often used by cybersecurity professionals to manage the life cycle of a threat in an effort to identify and respond to it with speed and accuracy. The foundation of threat management is a seamless integration between people, process and technology to stay ahead of threats.
A next-generation firewall (NGFW) is a part of the third generation of firewall technology, combining a traditional firewall with other network device filtering functions, such as an application firewall using in-line deep packet inspection (DPI), an intrusion prevention system (IPS). Other techniques might also be employed, such as TLS/SSL encrypted traffic inspection, website filtering, QoS/bandwidth management, antivirus inspection and third-party identity management integration
A Secure VPN is an encrypted connection over the Internet from a device to a network. The encrypted connection helps ensure that sensitive data is safely transmitted. It prevents unauthorized people from eavesdropping on the traffic and allows the user to conduct work remotely. VPN technology is widely used in corporate environments.
