Network security is one of the most important parts of any modern business in this highly-charged day and age. Companies are literally filled to the brim with employees who are all using the internet for different purposes. Employees use the internet to facilitate online meetings and conferences with people remotely and they also use their networks for online purchasing and shipping, as well as many other tasks that simply would not be possible without the internet. Networks like these open the way for businesses to expand, but they can also open the way for less productive or efficient aspects of the online universe.
Worms, viruses, spam and any other kind of malware are out there like forgotten landmines just waiting to be triggered. And with so many employees using the internet, the chances of uncovering one of these and possibly crippling your entire network have never been higher. Real-time internet security measures and filters are available that can blanket your t1 network and keep more of the bad stuff from getting in, but part of “real-time” means that they are working as we speak, up-to-date, all the time. Without a reliable XO communications service or t1 network backbone to support all of these ongoing countermeasures, you could suffer a network crash, and that could be bad for business. That’s why you not only need real-time security, but also a network that can handle it.
