Where does network security fit in as a priority in
your organization? Do you have methods for measuring the outcomes of
your IT security investments?
“More than two-thirds, (65 percent), of companies
report that they have not established ROI metrics for security risk
management initiatives in their organizations.” (Foundstone:June, 2004)
With the release of each new version of software
application and operating system, subsequent security risks and
vulnerabilities for attack appear. IT departments everywhere are dealing
with a flood of potential risks and attacks from worms, viruses,
unsolicited email, vulnerable operating systems, poorly configured
firewalls, routers, etc. What are the best IT investments to mitigate
the security risks and reduce operational costs for security?
GTC Networks has the experience and expertise in
all types of security management, reporting and firewall technology. GTC
Networks knows that a comprehensive security review is required on an
ongoing basis to keep up with current threats.
GTC Networks can help your organization with
planning, designing, and implementing security components and processes.
Network security begins at the perimeter of the
network, both internal connections (workstations) and external (WAN,
Internet). Access-lists (ACL’s) at the edge-router are often difficult
to manage and keep current. The new paradigm is that internal security
and internal-firewalls are as important as the external firewalls and
DMZ design. GTC Networks understands this new paradigm and offers
products and services that support strong authentication, encryption,
and role-based networking using RADIUS, LDAP, and other database that
protect the network from both inside and outside potential threats.
GTC Networks selects and recommends network
security products that can be deployed rapidly, enable web-based SSL
management interfaces and support long-term scalable architectures. GTC
Networks recommends appliance solutions as well as multi-layer
integrated switch solutions, depending on the deployment strategy that
matches the organizational needs.
