By definition, network security describes the technical and organizational protection of the internal IT infrastructure with all its data, systems, devices, and applications to enable secure digitalization. These security mechanisms not only protect the data center, but also all locations and the cloud itself. Effective network security fends off unauthorized access, data manipulation or data theft with blackmail, system paralysis (DDoS attacks), and other damage caused by hackers, malware, and viruses.
It ensures that data is exchanged confidentially and with integrity and is always available via VPN (Virtual Private Networks) or ZTNA (Zero Trust Network Access). However, secure networks are created primarily through comprehensive information on network security and network protection, as well as targeted measures to enforce cyber protection policies at all levels. The best way to get started right now is with LANCOM insider knowledge on the subject of network security!

As the central management instance, the LANCOM Management Cloud automates and simplifies the management, configuration, and monitoring of your Unified Firewalls, e.g. to administer Application Management and firmware updates. The automatic setup of VPN connections between all sites (Auto-VPN) is just as easy as the integration of new firewalls via a secure pairing process as well as the replacement of firewalls including complete configuration.
Types of cyber attacks and protective measures
Network threats are any hazard that can compromise a network or the data it contains. In many cases, the resulting loss can lead to serious consequences for the company affected. Learn more about the nature of the most widespread network threats currently around and how you can circumvent and combat them.
Every industry has its own unique network security requirements. In small and medium-sized companies, the protection of sensitive company data and ensuring business continuity play a particularly important role.
After all, cyber attacks can quickly lead to a considerable loss of reputation and trust, sales losses, and financial difficulties in medium-sized companies.
Basics of network security
Basic know-how on IT security in the network
Due to the increasing reports about cyber attacks on companies, everyone is aware of the fact that one should secure one's network. In theory. However, many people struggle with what professional cyber protection or network protection looks like in concrete terms and what is involved in it. This is an overview of the essential basics.

Network security & UTM
How Unified Threat Management protects your IT network
Thanks to Unified Threat Management, network security can be left to the LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewalls with a clear conscience: The UTM firewalls combine the highest-class security functions, such as sandboxing, machine learning, IDS /IPS, SSL inspection, deep packet inspection, and many more, in a single device, thus ensuring the best possible protection.
Quick network protection
Securing networks with inventory funds
As an IT admin, being responsible for network security is a considerable burden. But don't worry, we are at your side. Step-by-step towards greater network security. This includes router and firewall settings, LAN security, Wi-Fi settings, and general awareness throughout the company for the importance of IT security.
More security due to transparency
Advanced Deep Packet Inspection software
The LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewalls use the R&S®PACE 2 Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) engine to optimize the management of individual applications in the constantly growing network traffic. That sounds good, but also dry? Let us introduce you to how the software works and how it significantly increases the IT security of corporate networks.
Network security according to NIS2
Quickly understand and implement the new requirements
The EU has given network security a new, even higher priority with the new NIS2 directive: Because without state-of-the-art cybersecurity, attacks on critical infrastructure can have serious consequences for society and the economy. NIS2 requires many adjustments for some companies. We show you to whom NIS2 applies, what is required, and how to prepare well for it.
