Bulldog IT – Network Security

What is Network Security?

Network security is the technologies and processes used to defend any network and network-accessible assets from cyberattacks.  Every organisation, from large enterprises to the smallest of businesses, in every industry requires network security to protect critical assets and infrastructure from unauthorised access and data loss.

Vulnerabilities exist everywhere, from applications and devices to users and data paths. For this reason, security defences must protect at the many edges of the network and also inside the network, with a layered approach. Organizations should prioritize network security solutions that cover the multitude of threats, using a platform approach that prioritises automation and integration.

The Importance of Network Security

Organisations and businesses today need to understand the importance of network security. A breach in the network security can result in all types of irreparable harm, which is why organisations need to be educated and equipped with the right tools to prevent cyber-attacks.

Organisations need to update their systems regularly, especially because hackers are discovering new flaws to gain access to unauthorised networks. Bulldog IT can ensure your business is secure by implementing our advanced network security solutions.

Types of Network Security

Cloud Managed Firewall

A cloud managed firewall monitors network traffic coming into your business and removes unwanted attempts to access your network from hackers or malicious software (e.g. worms).  Ensure your business is protected by using a trusted, reliable firewall as a dependable security solution.


A resource that protects computers and systems against malware, including viruses, spyware and other harmful programs.

This should also be implemented across the organisation, and Bulldog IT assists with setting the relevant policies for defending businesses from malicious attacks. We also assist clients in ensuring that security patches and updates are deployed across the network, to all devices in a controlled fashion. This also enables all clients to have a secure configuration and set-up, with a set build for all devices.

Email security

Email gateways are the number one threat for a security breach. A recent report showed 18 million coronavirus scam emails were sent daily in April this year. An email security application can help block these attacks and control what is sent out.

DR plan

An effective disaster recovery plan is also of paramount importance to an organisation. Part of this will require businesses to establish incident management and testing an incident management plan at suitable intervals. This ensures that should there be an attack, such as Crypto Locker, businesses have the capability to recover seamlessly. Any incidents such as this should also be reported to the police.

Bulldog IT's CIO consultancy group - common requests

We need a temporary CIO / IT director to come in. Once or twice a month. Sit with the SMT and understand our business drivers. Then translate that into an IT strategy that we, as non technical people can understand and we can then implement.
Our current IT supplier is great, we don't want to change them, we just need someone to sanity check the advice they are giving us. Their solutions seem quite expensive and we want to ensure that we are getting the best value for our money and not investing in systems or solutions that will not be fit for purpose as we grow.

We have a CIO consultancy group set-up for just these types of requests.
