Strengthening network security can be done through several strategies. To increase network security without needing additional equipment or significant changes, consider the following tactics:
Organizations should continue to monitor their network infrastructure and be aware of emerging technologies and hardware offering companies more secure and faster networks. Once the company has determined that their existing network infrastructure needs to be revamped or replaced, they should consider leveraging a network solution optimized for security:
Dark fiber is a popular network solution for organizations requiring secure networks because they can lease unlit fiber optic strands to receive a private connection that they own, operate, and maintain. Dark fiber leases have full customization over how secure to make their network by having ownership over the equipment instead of using a third party. In addition, dark fiber connections are separate from main networks, promoting security.
Local managed network services providers (MNSPs) are uniquely positioned to provide organizations with secure network solutions in the form of managed network setups and on-site support. With the help of a local MNSP, organizations can offload network monitoring and security tasks off their workload to focus on more important IT tasks, as well as add an additional layer of security by hosting networks in offsite locations where only their employees can access.
