5 Best Practices for Enterprise Security

(Jamey Heary, PCWorld) With today's limited security budgets you need to be sure that you've adequately covered your highest risk areas before moving on to other things. Take a look at the top 5 security solutions you can put in place today to cover the widest scope of current and emerging threats.

These 5 items working together will stop more cyber attacks on your data, network and users than any other 5 items in the marketplace today. There are lots of other very useful security solutions on the market but when it comes to picking the top five most effective and readily available ones, here are the choices:
  1. Firewall - without firewalls in place to drop unwanted flows, your job of protecting your assets increases exponentially;
  2. Secure Router - routers are chock full of security features, sometimes even more so than a modern firewall;
  3. Wireless WPA2 - if you aren't using WPA2 wireless security then stop what you are doing and form a plan to start doing so;
  4. Email Security - a good email security solution will get rid of the junk and filter out the malicious stuff as well;
  5. Web Security - web security needs more than just URL filtering.
Read the detailed description of these 5 items by following the "full article" link.
