13 Reasons Internal Network Security Isn't Enough Anymore

Posted by John Olson on Jun 18, 2018 3:03:18 PM

Network security is not what it used to be. Most likely, if you're in the IT security business, you probably just laughed at the understatement of the year. With the 'rise' of the internet, search engines, wireless communication, cloud technology, and hackers hiding behind every access point, the idea of securing a single unified network has become almost ridiculous. It's still necessary as part of your greater business IT plan, but impossible to maintain on its own in today's highly online business environment.

What Network Discovery Software Will Tell You About Your Business

Posted by John Olson on Feb 12, 2018 5:20:00 PM

A modern business is made up of dozens, often hundreds, of individual devices, computers, appliances used by the company and employees. Some host websites and resources, others are personal endpoints, and some are resources shared by entire departments or the business as a whole. All of these physical technological assets come together to form your businesses' overall network made up of connected devices. In fact, everything that your central router provides with a local IP address, not matter how small or seemingly insignificant, technically counts as a piece of your network, can use up bandwidth and resources, and can create vulnerabilities in your system if not properly monitored and secured.
