Network Security Policy Management
Network administrators and IT teams alike use Network Security Policy Management (NSPM) to control their network environment in a safe, secure, and predictable way that helps them stay ahead of the constantly evolving threats. By streamlining your security policy design, you can seamlessly apply the most advanced best practices to manage your entire network efficiently and effectively.
Understanding Network Security Policy Management
One of the key responsibilities of your business is to build and manage the trust of your customers. You can only do that if you’re proactively securing the data you collect from those customers. Security policies are an essential part of protecting data, including determining the right protocols and parameters for who can access what and where.
In a working environment where remote employment is more and more common, the job of network administrators and IT teams only gets more complex. The larger the infrastructure, the more extensive the policies must be. It’s essential that security processes are straightforward and, most of all, repeatable. This maximises the protection against known and unknown cyber threats while improving the visibility your team has over your network.
Benefits of Effective NSPM
There are two key benefits of an effectively designed and implemented security policy: first, you can streamline your IT and network security enforcement, and second, you can better manage the application of best practices to threats when they do occur.
Improve Design and Application
Any security policy is only as good as it can be continuously implemented and managed. You can improve everything from usability to security with the right network security policy management. When everyone is using the same system the same way, you’ll find a consistent approach to your technical infrastructure that keeps your business operating efficiently and greatly reduces the risk of threats from misaligned usage.
Apply Advanced Best Practices
As the technology tools and capabilities continue to grow and evolve and the way that organisations use those tools also changes, it’s essential that you stay on top of the most up-to-date and most effective ways to manage your network. With the right NSPM plan in place, you can ensure an efficient and non-redundant set up that helps you more quickly identify anomalies in your network and combat threats early. Additionally, the consistent adoption of your network security policies will help you see where policies hinder operations in practice and need to be further optimised to align with your business.
