Minimize Network Threats

Minimize Network Threats

Threats can attack your company's networks any number of ways: malware spread by e-mail or spam, probing botnets, or phishing attacks hosted on Websites. Increasingly, attacks target:

  • Extensible markup language (XML) traffic
  • Service-oriented architecture (SOA)
  • Web services

Identifying threats coming from multiple potential fronts requires a strong systems-based approach.

Such an approach encompasses your entire network infrastructure, including endpoints, infrastructure, and e-mail. Following this strategy lets you take advantage of common policy configuration across products and collaboration between devices to identify threats and malware events. You also benefit from:

  • Reduced configuration complexity
  • More effective risk analysis
  • Better operational control

The result: increased protection and reduced costs.

Integrating security throughout the network infrastructure can protect each endpoint and device within the network. This way, every device in your network acts as a point of defense, working together to provide you the highest level of protection.
