Network security toolsAntivirus software packages : These packages restricts mostvirus threats if regularly updated and correctly maintained.Secure network infrastructure : Dedicated network securityhardware and software-Tools such as firewalls provide protectionfor all areas of the network and enable secure connections.Virtual private networks : These networks provide accesscontrol between two different computers on a network. This allowsremote workers to connect to the network without the risk of ahacker or thief intercepting data.Identity services : These services help to identify users andcontrol their activities and transactions on the network.
