Administrators are, hence, faced with the challenge of securing the network. Network security encompasses monitoring and securing the enterprise. The network security comprises of a system that keeps track of the status of a range of elements within a network. Enterprises, therefore, monitor, lock and secure their domains to ensure their security and possibly prevent cyber-attacks.

As the enterprise network grows, it is important to choose the best Enterprise Networking security that will not only network tasks and optimize design, but secure your network from the threats and attacks. But even then, with the best security system and application, security is not guaranteed. There are both pros and cons of having a security in your enterprise network management system. Networks have many demands placed on them to provide connectivity for business operations and communications. Additionally, to offer the connectivity companies needs, the network must also be secure. Many security purposes have been incorporated into the network management platform to improve network user experience, security, manageability, and network performance.
