Nowadays more and more new technologies are used in the business, which makes work easier. However, it also brings different threats. That is why, implementing new solutions should bear in mind their protection. Basic element of company's infrastructure, which should be safe is the network. It is a medium of communication between the internal company's network and the external world.
In this segment there are lots of threats and attacks targeting the data access by intruders. That is why, there should be used suitable solutions to protect described infrastructure:
- firewalls, which are responsible for verifications of the network communication
- intrusion detection and prevention systems - so called: IDS/IPS
- data backup
- suitable protection of mail servers
- data access authentication systems (SSH)
Thanks to systems copies it can be created of any application, files, databases. An essential advantage is, that security copies can be performed among other things on:
- tape storage devices
- using Storage Area Network (SAN)
- hard disks - RAID
Using compatible backup systems, data copies can be created without interrupting the activity of applications. Possessing data security copies, we have a certainty that in case of problems, for example equipment of a particular machine, we can restore essential files needed to run applications.
