Here at Bay Area Computer Solutions, we believe in providing the best IT security on the market. We are all for stringent hardware firewalls, hardened software firewalls, routine network and device security audits, and the best anti-virus/anti-spyware applications money can buy. While there are many security procedures you can implement, one of the best security policies is one no one ever seems to talk about.
When it comes to keeping your network and business secure, securing people’s access to it is of the utmost importance.
Whether you want to maintain security over your network at your office or within the data center where your servers are hosted, the best IT security policy is to limit physical access to network hardware. As much as IT security procedures dictate firewalls and anti-virus software, no one can do more damage to your network than an annoyed employee, a lackluster IT engineer, or a random malicious party.
Protecting your network means ensuring only trusted employees and hires have access to your physical servers. Without controlling access, you cannot know your network is fully secured. How should you monitor network security through granted access?
At the end of the day, network security and IT security is both about virtual and physical protocols. While your servers need to be secured with firewalls and anti-virus software, they also need to be secured with controlling physical access. Without both working in conjunction, your network will be at risk and your data security will be in jeopardy.
