Questions You Should Ask About Network Security

By: Absolute Team | 7/23/2012

Every IT strategy involves questions of data access: who accesses what, for how long and what can they do with it. With bring your own device (BYOD) , those questions become more persistent and complicated. Questions of data security and network security become forefront.

Enterasys recently posted about the importance of visibility and security noting that those involved in IT security need to ask in order to determine if user access is within acceptable compliance and security policy levels:

  • Who is accessing the network?
  • What is their role in the organization?
  • Where are they accessing the network from?
  • When is the access taking place?
  • What type of device are they using?
  • What application are they using?
  • What data are they accessing?
  • How much bandwidth is the access consuming?
