Security Challenges That Hinder Network Infrastructure Protection

Network Infrastructure Protection Overview

In order to persevere in the face of escalating cyber attacks and maintain application availability, organizations must expand their traditional network infrastructure defenses to incorporate DNS security, centralized visibility, and vulnerability detection.
In today’s hyper-connected, always-on landscape, network reliability, and availability are essential to nearly every business. But achieving them is becoming increasingly difficult in the face of escalating cyber attacks. For digital enterprises, the loss of network access is no longer a minor inconvenience. It can negatively affect productivity, customer satisfaction, brand, revenues, and profitability. To a large degree, ensuring the availability of applications and services comes down to how effectively organizations protect their network infrastructure.

What infrastructure protection ultimately protects?

• Business productivity
• Customer satisfaction

• Revenues
• Profits

Conventional Network Protection Is No Longer Enough

Safeguarding a network’s extended infrastructure—its servers, storage, devices, and virtual machines—from attack-related downtime involves multiple components. Among these are traditional perimeter defenses, including distributed denial of service (DDoS) solutions, email, antivirus, web gateway security and other Network Access Control (NAC) measures, along with security information and event management (SIEM) systems.

Unfortunately, many IT organizations assume these solutions alone provide sufficient protection. The reality is, in today’s sophisticated threat environment, infrastructure protection requires several crucial capabilities many enterprises overlook or underappreciate: knowing what’s on a network, ensuring that all devices are compliant and free from vulnerabilities and DNS security.
