Top 10 Network Security Solution Providers - 2019

Since the initial days of the internet, network frauds have been a regular phenomenon, evolving as a primary concern for every administrator and data scientist. While numerous security measures have been devised and adopted to eliminate such network data theft and breaches, the situation only seems to get worse, despite some of the innovative strides taken by organizations to combat such infringements. Thus, such a surge in the number of data thefts has paved the way for the growth of advanced network security solutions that scan threats beyond the conventional and visible areas of a network.

Today, with the increased usage of mobile devices and integrated security solutions, threats on such system architectures have also evolved, enabling firms around the globe to search for smarter as well as advanced security options. Although antivirus and virtual private networks (VPN) installed on desktops, laptops, and mobile devices secure the data stored within them, they no longer prevent sophisticated, targeted attacks and should not be defined as a single, primary IT security strategy. Instead, organizations must employ network security solutions that incorporate a myriad of advanced technologies, which are necessary for a multi-layered security approach comprising firewalls, VPNs, and application control functionalities.

Yet, firms often experience difficulty in associating with a reliable and trusted network security solution provider. Thus, to simplify this search, a distinguished panel comprising of eminent CEOs, CIOs, VCs, and analysts along with the editorial board of Enterprise Networking Magazine have hand-picked Top 10 Network Security Solution Providers of the year 2019. These companies have been selected based on their ability to offer services and solutions that detect, prevent, and mitigate multiple breaches in the network infrastructure.
