IRIS Fortigate Reporting – Network Security
Network Security reports and analytics with IRIS Fortigate Reporting
In today’s marketplace, network security is fast becoming a central practice for businesses. The modern network environment constantly faces various network security threats. These threats take on many more forms than just the usual suspects; hackers and viruses.
By and large, the biggest threats to network security today are the people who use the network on a daily basis – most often without them even realizing it. Security loopholes exist both at the perimeters of your environment, and within it. This is why one can’t be too diligent when it comes to network management. Building effective security around your environment requires planning. IT administrators need clear roadmaps that lead to a network that is secure, stable and predictable.
As new network security threats arise, administrators need to adapt to any loopholes that exist within the environment. Although the goalposts are always moving, network security can be attained with due diligence and the correct tools. Network monitoring software offers administrators and engineers alike the necessary tools to identify network security threats as they arise, and to take the appropriate corrective measures.
