Potential Threats To Network Security IconNetwork security is an essential part of managing access to your network. With its major role being that of identifying, targeting and stopping threats from entering and spreading through your network there are various potential threats to network security to look out for, especially when ransomware is lurking. Here are four potential threats to network security you should be on the lookout for.

Spam Emails

With links often directing the receiver of a spam email to websites that may be used to install malicious software, unrecognised email addresses and attachments are something to be avoided when it comes to network security.

One of the ways in which this can be addressed is through user education. Knowing what a threat looks like and how to steer clear is half the battle won. Unfortunately, this is not a fool-proof solution which is why, through our strategic partnerships, we are able to offer email risk management for your business. Helping to ensure the security of your network and safety of your data.

The Internet of Things

The Internet of Things is quickly becoming a comprehensive solution to connectivity and simplicity. However, while this intimate connection of devices allows information and data to be exchanged quickly and easily, this ease of use also poses a threat to network security.

If not adequately protected, your network is left vulnerable to those who are trying to gain access to your information.

In addressing this, Triple4 offers a comprehensive network solution that is tailored specifically to your business needs. Providing management and support for a variety of network types to ensure your network is secure and your data is protected.

Software concerns

Think twice before postponing important updates. Vendors are constantly fixing and updating software in an effort to achieve optimal security and not updating software means that important patches cannot be installed. This poses a risk to network security, highlighting the potential of encountering the same problem again and again.

Through our remote support solution, Triple4 is able to manage and maintain elements like patch management, ensuring a comprehensive solution for your IT environment.

Not having the necessary skill set

Ransomware and malware, as well as the way in which hackers are able to gain entry to your network, is evolving and becoming more and more sophisticated. It is critical that you have people on your side with an extensive knowledge of your network as well as the possible threats that may be encountered.

At Triple4 we have a dedicated team with an advanced skill set to ensure that network security concerns at every level are dealt with by the best person for the job.
