About the report

A New Business Environment

To be successful in today's global markets, organizations must develop and implement effective network security strategies. Security is becoming increasingly important as the worldwide online community grows and private organizations open their systems to business partners.

A Valuable Security Resource

CTR's newest report, Network Security: Developing and Implementing Effective Enterprise Strategies, examines and offers solutions for the security issues facing today's global businesses. The report addresses the legal and ethical issues that monetary transactions via the Internet present to both the organization and the individual.

Designing and implementing a security strategy requires management, research, and analysis. The report outlines how an organization should assess its security needs -- using penetration testing, in-house assessments, or drives and directories testing, for example -- and discusses the network assessment tools available.

Network Security: Developing and Implementing Effective Enterprise Strategies presents user issues that must be addressed when securing an enterprise network, including the following:

  • How should Web privileges be assigned?
  • How can controls be fairly and efficiently implemented?
  • What steps should be taken if a major security breach occurs?

Available Security Tools and Technologies

As industry and business communications re-invent themselves to take advantage of the new business opportunities presented by the Internet and virtual private networks (VPNs), software and hardware products are evolving to meet these needs.

Network Security: Developing and Implementing Effective Enterprise Strategies highlights technology vendors at the forefront of today's security arena and outlines their product offerings, including sniffers and scanners, encryption suites, and log and audit toolkits.

The report also explains how to defend enterprise networks against the increasing number of internal and external security threats. The report introduces some of the types of attacks, such as Internet protocol (IP) spoofing, Trojan horse, and denial-of-service (DoS) attacks and suggests several effective prevention strategies.


By discussing how secure communication is linked with business needs, CTR's new Network Security: Developing and Implementing Effective Enterprise Strategies report provides decision-makers with the tools to implement network security strategies. These strategies will protect their organizations now and in the future.

Ultimately, network security is a business issue, and IT managers responsible for developing security solutions for their organizations must understand all facets of network security. The future of their business depends on it.
