Network administrators have good reason to feel beleaguered today. Amid well-publicized attacks on the world's most sophisticated and best-designed networks, IT managers must somehow keep their own networks safe and their companies' private data secure. At the same time they face an overwhelming demand for new communication services, many of them delivered over the public Internet.
First Line of Defense
The Internet has become an irreplaceable tool for most businesses. It is the primary source of market news and competitor intelligence, a conduit to customers, a medium of direct commerce, and an essential tie to partners and suppliers. Increasingly, it is even being used to extend the traditional WAN. But when a private network connects to the Internet, it opens physical links to more than 50,000 unknown networks and all their unknown users. While this interconnectedness brings exciting opportunities for information sharing, it also brings threats to information not meant for sharing. Network managers face the task of giving their organizations the connectivity they need for corporate and individual communications, while keeping their sensitive information and proprietary data secure.
The good news is that with planning, discipline and a modest investment, secure operation over the Internet is possible for businesses of any size.
