The servers can be placed on a server rack which will hold the main network devices such as switches, routers and the modem as well as the firewall and the Intrusion Detection System. This room should have restricted access and only authorized personnel must have access to it, by using sophisticated keycard systems and even having additional security procedures such as biometrical readers etc. It was also proposed to get rid of Motorola SB3100 and Net Gear MR814 to increase the overall security with more advanced networking devices to provide new security features such as VLANs, access lists, and secure protocols. In order to protect the application servers from the internet, the most common un-trusted network, the proposal suggests a firewall to be installed between the internal network and external router. The firewall would be an Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) firewall, "the ASA is not just a pure hardware firewall. In brief, the Cisco ASA is a security device that combines firewall, antivirus, intrusion prevention, and virtual private network (VPN) capabilities. It provides proactive…show more content…
Segmenting the wireless network from the wired network though, is not only a trust issue, wireless networks suffer from many attacks such as Denial of Service caused by interference. The access point that will provide wireless access will be connected to a wired switch, however the separation of the wireless network is proposed to be done with the use of virtual LANs. VLANs will separate the network to two logical networks operating on the same physical network. This separation will enchant network’s security as the main network will be inaccessible from customers as well as it will not be affected if the wireless network is facing issues. The AP must be using Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) security protocol that has advanced encryption standards comparing to
