Infrastruktur und Perimeter Security

Infrastructure and Perimeter Security – 

The corporate firewall.


Rapid digitalisation and the modern workplace are placing IT under a lot of pressure. New ways of working are possible thanks to new tools, but at the same time, demands on corporate IT infrastructures are growing. Employees want to be able to work flexibly and access corporate data from anywhere, however, cyberattacks are becoming more frequent and businesses are faced with the challenges presented by infrastructure security.

The term infrastructure and perimeter security encompasses products, solutions and services designed to protect your enterprise. You can secure your infrastructure with various vendors’ firewall solutions used in combination with web and e-mail solutions.

Data and services in the corporate network should only be accessible to employees outside of the company through encrypted VPNs. The computer system creates a secure SSL tunnel into the corporate network meaning that external users can connect as easily as those in-house. The classic use of firewalls with flexible working methods is no longer compatible as a result of lax security.

Why are perimeter and network security so important? 

Benefits of infrastructure security at a glance:

  • Firewall. 

Protects networks and individual computer systems from unauthorised access. Some of the latest versions can also detect attacks.

  • E-mail security.

Checks and encrypts e-mail traffic to protect against spam and also malware/phishing attacks.

  • Web security.

Protects against malware and botnets.

Can also be used to apply container filters (parental controls).

  • Authentication.

Protects against identity theft by leveraging multi-factor authentication.

  • Network segmentation.

Protects sensitive network areas or entire data centres from unauthorised access and reduces the spread of malware.

  • IP address management.

Manages and logs all IP addresses permitted in the network.

  • Intrusion detection and prevention.
