The increase of new types of cyber threats as well as the integration of third-party and internal devices into the company’s IT require a rethinking in order to ensure a sustainable protection of the company’s network.

Network Security

We define a customized protection strategy for your network to sustainably secure it against cyber threats.

The constant availability (“always-on”) and the increasing connection of a large number of end devices to the Internet and internal company networks are a major challenge for ensuring holistic network security. Due to the increased requirements, previous security measures are no longer sufficient for comprehensive protection.

A company’s productivity can be increased by access to the corporate network for external employees, home office and work from remote locations. This however requires dealing with current and enhanced security risks. End-to-end transparency regarding the network traffic is essential. An incomplete picture of access rights to business-critical data and systems makes effective defense difficult. It is therefore necessary to set up a comprehensive protection and recovery strategy.

Appropriate defense mechanisms protect the corporate network to allow only authorized users, after authentication, to access the network and share data. Role-based policies allow access to the necessary content to ensure business operations.

EFS’s modular system for “Network Security” offers various modules to increase the network security level in companies in the long term in order to ensure business operations.
