The historical definition of network security is to use a firewall to screen users coming into the network, but as IT technology and security technology have evolved, the definition is much broader now.
Today, network security is everything a company does to ensure the security of its networks and everything connected to them. This includes the network, the cloud (or clouds), endpoints, servers, users and applications. Cybersecurity products seek use preventive physical and software measures to protect the network and its assets from unauthorized access, modification, destruction and misuse. These products typically target certain assets on the network:
As you can see, there’s a lot to protect, and a lot of approaches to protecting it under the idea of network security. But rather than having a dozen or more point solutions (each with its own interface console) to manage, wouldn’t it be easier, faster and more efficient to have just one?
Stellar Cyber’s platform integrates security tools under one interface, including network security, referred to by Gartner as network detection and response (NDR). Bundling native application in a base platform eliminates the need to manually correlate threat information from multiple siloed solutions. In addition, Stellar Cyber’s platform can replace existing point solutions over time, reducing licensing and administrative costs. Finally, Stellar Cyber can respond to threats automatically by taking action on its own or in cooperation with other existing solutions such as firewalls, which means a much faster time to threat resolution.
