Keeping your network safe at every port
A firewall is a network security device that monitors incoming and outgoing network traffic and permits or blocks data packets based on a set of security rules. Its purpose is to establisha barrier between your internal network and incoming traffic from external sources (such as the internet) in order to block malicious traffic like viruses and hackers.
Network access control, or NAC, solutions support network visibility and access management through policy enforcement on devices and users of corporate networks.
A NAC system can deny network access to noncompliant devices, place them in a quarantined area, or give them only restricted access to computing resources, thus keeping insecure nodes from infecting the network.
Mail relay is often referred to as an e-mail server, a device and/or program that routes an e-mail to the correct destination. Mail relays are typically used within local networks to transmit e-mails among local users.
Also, they are particularly useful in e-mail aliasing where multiple e-mail addresses are used but the mail relay forwards all messages to the specified e-mail addresses to one single address.
A WAF or Web Application Firewall helps protect web applications by filtering and monitoring HTTP traffic between a web application and the Internet. It typically protects web applications from attacks such as cross-site forgery, cross-site-scripting (XSS), file inclusion, and SQL injection, among others. A WAF operates through a set of rules often called policies. These policies aim to protect against vulnerabilities in the application by filtering out malicious traffic. The value of a WAF comes in part from the speed and ease with which policy modification can be implemented, allowing for faster response to varying attack vectors.
A Secure Socket Layer Virtual Private Network (SSL VPN) lets remote users access Web applications, client-server apps, and internal network utilities and directories without the need for specialized client software.
SSL VPN’s provide safe communication for all types of device traffic across public networks and private networks. All traffic between a Web browser and SSL VPN device is encrypted with the SSL protocol, or its successor protocol (TLS).
Container security is the process of implementing security tools and policies that will give you the assurance that everything in your container is running as intended, and only as intended. This includes protecting the infrastructure, the software supply chain, runtime, and everything in between.
