Knowing some common terms can help your security efforts

Your network is a critical business asset that keeps your company competitive. You depend on your network for the most important aspects of your business—from delivering the applications employees need to do their jobs to providing the ability to communicate with customers, partners, and mobile workers. You can’t risk having your network—or the data that resides on it—compromised by a security breach or attack.

There’s a lot to know about security in order to protect your network. Following up to the previous Talkin’ Tech topic, this installment includes a list of the key terms you should be familiar with to help you understand and build your security strategy.

If there’s a term we didn’t include that you’d like defined, please let us know!
