As companies face a growing number of cybersecurity threats, they need to implement effective network management and protection strategies. This involves managing and securing all aspects of a company's network, from firewalls and intrusion detection systems to cloud-based security solutions and remote access management.
Without network protection and management, companies will struggle to safeguard against hacking, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, data theft and so on. The result is an increased risk of a security breach leading to sensitive data loss; downtime, loss of productivity and revenue; difficulty in managing and monitoring the network; and failing to identify parts of the network that are open to attack.
DDoS stands for Distributed Denial of Service. This is a type of cyber-attack where multiple compromised systems flood a targeted website or network with traffic, overwhelming it and causing it to crash or become inaccessible.
DDoS mitigation is the process of defending against DDoS attacks by identifying and filtering out malicious traffic. BMIT does this using specialized hardware and software designed to detect and mitigate the attack while allowing legitimate traffic to flow through.
A managed network – your WAN, LAN, Wi-Fi and anything in between - is one that is maintained and monitored by a third-party service provider like BMIT. Depending on the type of infrastructure, we take care of your network's hardware, software, and security, implementing best practices and ensuring that your network operates efficiently and securely. This means you can focus on core operations without worrying about network maintenance.
SD-WAN stands for Software-Defined Wide Area Network. This is a type of network architecture that uses software to simplify and optimize the management of your wide area network (WAN). There are several benefits to SD-WAN – flexibility, scalability and cost-effectiveness. SD-WAN also provides advanced security features, such as encryption and network segmentation, to protect data as it moves across your network.
With the advent of cloud and hybrid work, your network perimeter has changed. Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a combination of your network and security functions with your WAN capabilities to ensure dynamic, secure remote access for your hybrid workforce as well as a unified security and network architecture. SASE uses a cloud-based service to provide a single-pane view, simplified network management, thus reducing the need for in-house specialized network expertise.
Controlling and filtering incoming and outgoing network traffic is a must to protect your network from cyber threats and hackers trying to infiltrate your systems. With BMIT’s managed firewall service, we take away the need for in-house IT expertise or resources. Instead, you rely on our expert network and security administrators to host, configure, monitor and maintain your firewall appliance – be it hosted on-premises (Data center / Office) or cloud-based.
Intrusion Detection / Intrusion Protection (IDS/IPS)
Whilst blocking certain types of traffic is important, an additional safety net is needed to check and block, if needed, traffic after it has passed through your firewall. This is done using an intrusion detection / intrusion protection solution. This can be a separate security solution or part of your existing firewall set up. IDS / IPS are done in real-time.
Is your wi-fi up to scratch? Your Wi-Fi network may pose a security threat, or it may not be optimized. With our Wi-Fi analysis service, you can be proactive and ask BMIT for a comprehensive assessment of your Wi-Fi network to identify potential issues, optimize performance, and enhance security.
By analysing factors such as signal strength, interference, blind spots, and network congestion, we can recommend solutions that can improve the overall user experience and ensure the network is secure. By identifying and resolving issues proactively, you can avoid costly downtime, frustrated users and potential security breaches
When was the last time you gave your network a health check-up? Talk to our network and security professionals to carry out a thorough health check of your infrastructure, hardware and services. We will help you identify weakness in your enterprise IT, areas for improvement and recommendations on how to optimise your network in a secure manner.
Knowing exactly what your business’s IT needs are or how best to set up your network and architecture takes time and expertise, two things most businesses do not have! Our team of Solution Architects and other BMIT experts can help. Our in-depth network design workshops are designed to help businesses identify their IT needs, the best way to achieve their business goals and detailed plans on how to go about it.
