Hello,



Network security consists of the provisions and policies adopted by a network administrator

to prevent and monitor unauthorized access, misuse, modification, or denial of a computer network

and network-accessible resources. Network security involves the authorization of access to data in a

network, which is controlled by the network administrator.

hello,
A specialized field in computer networking that involves securing a computer network infrastructure. Network security is typically handled by a network administrator or system administrator who implements the security policy, network software and hardware needed to protect a network and the resources accessed through the network from unauthorized access and also ensure that employees have adequate access to the network and resources to work.
A network security system typically relies on layers of protection and consists of multiple components including networking monitoring and security software in addition to hardware and appliances. All components work together to increase the overall security of the computer network.

hello,
 Network security consists of the provisions and policies adopted by a network administrator to prevent and monitor unauthorized access, misuse, modification, or denial of a computer network and network-accessible resources. Network security involves the authorization of access to data in a network, which is controlled by the network administrator. Users choose or are assigned an ID and password or other authenticating information that allows them access to information and programs within their authority. Network security covers a variety of computer networks, both public and private, that are used in everyday jobs conducting transactions and communications among businesses, government agencies and individuals. Networks can be private, such as within a company, and others which might be open to public access. Network security is involved in organizations, enterprises, and other types of institutions. It does as its title explains: It secures the network, as well as protecting and overseeing operations being done. The most common and simple way of protecting a network resource is by assigning it a unique name and a corresponding password.

thanks,

Hi,

Network Security is an organizationís strategy and provisions for ensuring the security of its assets and of all network traffic.
Network security is manifested in an implementation of security policy, hardware, and software.
For the purposes of this discussion, the following approach is adopted in an effort to view network security in its entirety:

Policy
Enforcement
Auditing

Thanks

Hello,

Network security is an over-arching term that describes that the policies and procedures implemented by a network administrator to avoid and keep track of unauthorized access, exploitation, modification, or denial of the network and network resources.

This means that a well-implemented network security blocks viruses, malware, hackers, etc. from accessing or altering secure information.

Thanks,
Pavithra

Enforcement
Auditing

The concept of defense in depth is observed as a best practice in network security, prescribing for the network to be secured in layers. These layers apply an assortment of security controls to sift out threats trying to enter the network:

Access control
Identification
Authentication
Malware detection
Encryption
File type filtering
URL filtering
Content filtering
