Cybersecurity FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions for Network Security Services

1. What are network security services?

Network security services refer to a range of measures designed to protect computer networks from unauthorized access, misuse, modification, or denial of service. These services include firewall, intrusion detection and prevention, antivirus and antimalware, virtual private network (VPN), and more.

2. What are the types of network security services?

The types of network security services include:

  • Firewall
  • Intrusion detection and prevention
  • Antivirus and antimalware
  • Virtual private network (VPN)
  • Web security
  • Email security
  • Data loss prevention (DLP)
  • Identity and access management (IAM)
  • Security information and event management (SIEM)

3. What is the CIA triad?

The CIA triad is a model for information security that consists of three core principles:

  • Confidentiality: Ensuring that only authorized individuals can access sensitive data
  • Integrity: Maintaining the accuracy and consistency of data over its entire lifecycle
  • Availability: Ensuring that data is accessible to authorized users when needed

4. What is two-factor authentication?

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a security process that requires users to provide two different authentication factors to verify their identity before accessing a system or application. These can be something the user knows (such as a password), something the user has (such as a smart card or security token), or something the user is (such as a fingerprint or iris scan).

5. How much do network security services cost?

The cost of network security services depends on various factors, such as the size and complexity of the network, the type of services required, and the level of security needed. It is best to consult with a cybersecurity services provider to get an accurate estimate.

6. What is encryption?

Encryption is the process of converting data into a form that can only be read by authorized individuals who possess a decryption key. This ensures that sensitive data remains confidential even if it is intercepted by unauthorized individuals or entities.

7. What are the different encryption methods?

The different encryption methods include:

  • Symmetric key encryption
  • Asymmetric key encryption
  • Hashing
  • Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)

8. What is a firewall?

A firewall is a network security device that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules. It acts as a barrier between the network and the internet, preventing unauthorized access and malicious traffic.

9. What is intrusion detection and prevention?

Intrusion detection and prevention (IDP) is a network security service that monitors network traffic for signs of unauthorized access, malicious activity, or policy violations. It can detect and block attacks in real-time, preventing damage to the network and its resources.

10. What is antivirus and antimalware?

Antivirus and antimalware are network security services that protect against malicious software, such as viruses, worms, Trojans, and spyware. They detect and remove malware from the network and its endpoints, ensuring that they do not cause damage or steal sensitive data.

11. What is a virtual private network (VPN)?

A virtual private network (VPN) is a network security service that creates a secure, encrypted connection between a remote user and the network. It allows users to access the network from anywhere, while ensuring that their data remains confidential and secure.

12. What is web security?

Web security is a network security service that protects web applications and their users from cyber threats, such as cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection, and cross-site request forgery (CSRF). It ensures that web applications are secure, available, and performant.

13. What is email security?

Email security is a network security service that protects email systems and their users from cyber threats, such as spam, phishing, and malware. It ensures that emails are secure, authenticated, and delivered to the intended recipients.

14. What is data loss prevention (DLP)?

Data loss prevention (DLP) is a network security service that prevents sensitive data from being lost, stolen, or leaked outside the network. It identifies and classifies sensitive data, monitors its movement, and prevents unauthorized access or exfiltration.

15. What is identity and access management (IAM)?

Identity and access management (IAM) is a network security service that manages the identities and access rights of users and devices on the network. It ensures that only authorized individuals can access network resources, and that access is granted based on the principle of least privilege.

Although Schaumburg-Centric in Many Ways - Agility Networks is Prudently Removing Geography from the Equation.

Agility Networks has worked diligently on removing the geography from the equation of I.T. system management. We have been working with clients to streamline IT system operations, improving performance and reducing costs. Our unique approach involves bringing IT system management capabilities to the field, allowing IT staff to work together and execute maintenance tasks remotely. By taking this approach, we have been able to eliminate many barriers to system management and achieve new levels of efficiency in operations.
It is one thing for an organization to establish a centralized location for IT operations; it’s another to create a culture that supports remote work. Agility Networks has worked tirelessly on both fronts over the past 15 years. We have built partnerships with IT service providers, enabling them to offer better service by removing some of the logistical challenges of remote work. We have also created a culture that supports remote work, creating a more comfortable environment for IT staff who may be spending long hours working from home or traveling across the world for business meetings.
The benefits of remote working are numerous: flexibility, efficiency, productivity, and cost savings all make remote working attractive. Adapting traditional office cultures to these new ways of working requires thoughtfulness and careful consideration. As such, Agility Networks’ role is not just to provide technology services; it is also to build trust within an organization and create a supportive environment where people feel comfortable taking advantage of new opportunities that could.


We have help desk services for all of our clients that have their systems managed by our firm.
