As organizations continue to adopt IoT technology, ensuring secure access to a private network becomes particularly difficult. Network access control systems, however, protect network data by requiring user authentication and authorization before every request.
These systems also proactively address security breaches, though many also integrate with anti-virus or malware systems that organizations already use.
A cybersecurity posture is essentially the total procedures, policies, and services that an organization uses to defend itself from cyber attack. Companies evaluate their security risk then develop policies, employee training procedures, and, if they have the resources, malware, virus, and other threat detection services, focusing on their most vulnerable assets.
In short, a cybersecurity posture describes an organization’s cyber threat readiness and identifies areas where this readiness can be improved.
