Getting Started with Best Practices
Security best practices give visibility into traffic,
reduce the attack surface, prevent threats, protect networks, and
activate Security Assurance.
Security best practices prevent known and unknown threats,
reduce the attack surface, and provide visibility into traffic,
so you know and control which applications, users, and content are
on your network. When you implement security best practices, you:
Minimize the chances of a successful intrusion.
Identify the presence of attackers.
Protect your valuable data.
Protect your customers, partners, and employees, and thus protect
the reputation of your business.
Help to achieve a Zero Trust
To transition to security best practices, first you need to understand
