An Ethernet crossover cable is a type of twisted pair Ethernet cable used to connect computing devices together that would normally be connected via switch
CCTV (closed-circuit television) is a TV system in which signals are not publicly distributed but are monitored, primarily for surveillance and security purposes.
A Network Switch is a Hardware appliance with a fixed number of Network Ports (Copper/Fibre) that can connect multiple Network devices.
A router is used to connect two different networks, weather it is private or public (Internet), so users can access resources across networks.
Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity) is a Local Area Wireless Computer Networking technology that allows electronic devices to connect to the network.
Wireless technology is a key enabling technology that allows us to extend the existing network into areas where hardwiring would be expensive or not possible.
Link Load Balancing for High-Availability of Connectivity. Link load balancing provides advanced failover and bandwidth management for multiple WAN connections to assure continuous operation of enterprise applications.
Traffic shaping, also known as "packet shaping," is the practice of regulating network data transfer to assure a certain level of performance, quality of service to improve productivity.
By balancing application requests across multiple servers, a load balancer prevents any application server from becoming a single point of failure, thus improving overall application availability and responsiveness.
WAN optimization, is a technologies and techniques used to maximize the efficiency of data flow across a wide area network (WAN). The goal of optimization is to increase the speed of access to critical applications and information.
Network Access Control (NAC) is an approach to computer security that attempts to unify endpoint security technology (such as antivirus, host intrusion prevention, and vulnerability assessment), user or system authentication and network security enforcement.
The use of a system that constantly monitors the network for slow or failing components and that notifies the network administrator (via email, SMS or other alarms) in case of outages. Which will help optimize the network from time to time.
Software-defined networking (SDN) is an umbrella term encompassing several kinds of network technology aimed at making the network as agile and flexible as the virtualized server and storage infrastructure of the modern data centre.
Audio and Video Solutions for communicating to the (far end) branch offices, Clients, Vendors resilient communication.
Antivirus is protective software designed to defend your computer against malicious software. Malicious software or "malware" includes: viruses, Trojans, key loggers, hijackers, diallers, and other code that vandalizes or steals your computer contents.
Data Leak Prevention product scans and analyses all outbound data transmissions from your network in real time. Once a threshold amount of protected data is detected, it stops the violating transmission and/or alerts the designated security officer or administrator.
Definition: Encryption is a process which is applied to text messages or other important data, and alters it to make it humanly unreadable except by someone who knows how to decrypt it.
Application control is a security practice that blocks or restricts unauthorized applications from executing in ways that put data at risk in a computer.
Mobile device management (MDM) is a type of security software used by an IT department to monitor, manage and secure employees' mobile devices that are deployed across multiple mobile service providers and across multiple mobile operating systems being used in the organization.
A Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) is an integrated network platform that combines a traditional firewall with other network device filtering functionalities such as an application firewall using in-line deep packet inspection (DPI), an intrusion prevention system (IPS) and/or other techniques such as SSL and SSH.
UTM is used to describe network firewalls that have many features in one box, including e-mail spam filtering, anti-virus capability, an intrusion detection (or prevention) system (IDS or IPS), and World Wide Web content filtering, along with the traditional activities of a firewall.
An SSL VPN (Secure Sockets Layer virtual private network) is a form of VPN that can be used with a standard Web browser an SSL VPN does not require the installation of specialized client software on end users' computers.
Intrusion prevention is a pre-emptive approach to network security used to identify potential threats and respond to them swiftly. Like an intrusion detection system (IDS), an intrusion prevention system (IPS) monitors network traffic.
On the Internet, content filtering (also known as information filtering) is the use of a program to screen and exclude from access or availability Web pages or e-mail that is deemed objectionable.
Email Security is used to combat the proliferation of spam or to keep spam from entering a system. An ideal Email Security system rejects messages which are both bulk and unsolicited.
Two-factor authentication is a security process in which the user provides two means of identification, one of which is typically a physical token, such as a card, and the other of which is typically something memorized.
Threat Protection solutions block, detect, and quickly respond to all of today’s threats across your organization, from embedded systems, to mobile devices, to desktops, servers, gateways, and the cloud.
A web application firewall (WAF) is an appliance, server plugin, or filter that applies a set of rules to an HTTP conversation. Generally, these rules cover common attacks such as cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection. By customizing the rules to your application, many attacks can be identified and blocked.
Security information and event management (SIEM) is an approach to security management that seeks to provide a holistic view of an organization’s information technology (IT) security.
It has become more difficult in recent years as DDoS attacks have grown increasingly sophisticated. DDoS attackers have shifted their focus from the network and transport layers to the application layer, where DDoS protection is harder to maintain. That's why so many organizations have turned to DDOS Protection.
