Network Security Checklist 1

Network security is an essential part of modern business and might seem too complex but there are steps you can take to protect your network and data, both hardware and software solutions.

It is impossible to make networks 100% secure but  certain measures can be taken to help reduce the risks and threats your business faces.

These threats  come from many different fronts. For example the more users on multiple devices using numerous different applications, the more vulnerable your network becomes.
