What is network security? Multiple layers of security are combined in network security. Each layer of network security implements policies and controls. Only authorized users have access to network resources. Malicious actors cannot exploit or threaten the network.
What are the benefits of network security?
Our world has been transformed by digitization. Digitization has changed the way we live, work and play. Protecting your network is essential if you want to provide the services customers and employees expect from your organization. Protecting proprietary information is also a part of security. It protects your reputation.
Firewalls can provide network security in a variety of ways
A firewall is a network security device that monitors and blocks traffic to and from the network. It follows a set of security rules and determines whether it should be allowed or blocked. CTS 3 Solutions provides both threat-focused firewalls as well as unified threat management (UTM), devices.

Intrusion prevention systems (IPS) scan network traffic to block malicious activity. Secure IPS appliances use massive amounts of global threat intelligence to block malicious activity and track the progress of malware and suspect files across the network in order to stop reinfections.
Secure IPS and Workload Security
Workload security is designed to protect workloads that are moving between different cloud or hybrid environments. These distributed workloads are more susceptible to attack and must be protected without hampering agility.
CTS 3 Solutions Secure Workload
CTS 3 Solutions’ vision of security is to simplify the network, workload, and multi-cloud security. It delivers unified security controls for dynamic environments.

CTS 3 Solutions & Network Segmentation will reimagine your firewall
Software-defined segmentation allows network traffic to be divided into different categories, making it easier to enforce security policies. The classifications should be based on endpoint identification and not just IP addresses. Access rights can be assigned based on location, role, and other factors so that the correct level of access is granted to the right people.
Learn more about VPN network segmentation
Virtual private networks encrypt the connection between an endpoint and a network, usually over the internet. A remote-access VPN uses IPsec (or Secure Sockets Layer) to authenticate communication between devices and networks.
Learn about VPN and endpoint security clients & Access control
You should not allow every user to access your network. You must identify each user and device to prevent potential attackers. This will allow you to enforce your security policies. You can either block or limit access to non-compliant devices. This is called network access control (NAC).
