Infrastructure solutions secure data traffic and IT systems. They work at the lowest network level and provide the essential basis for a well-balanced security model.
Today's risks are complex and dramatically different from those with which we were confronted a decade ago. Data security is a sensitive topic that requires modern and dependable solutions. Those solutions should be able to be integrated into an existing company structure and should cover the weak points within and outside the company.
What needs to be protected?
- Mobile terminals
- Data exchange between companies and persons
- Confidential email communication
- Sensitive data on hard drives or storage media
- Encrypted keys
Firewalls and intrusion detection/prevention systems
Firewalls and intrusion detection or prevention systems are important instruments to control network traffic and for defense against attacks.
Firewalls regulate data traffic at network interfaces and block suspect or harmful data.
Intrusion detection systems examine data traffic, evaluate it and recognise threatened attacks. They are like virtual alarm systems.
Intrusion prevention systems go one step further however. They fend off attacks. The system actively engages with network traffic and protects the system against attacks from outside.
