So, what do you need to protect your network? No one product or service can protect you 100%; it takes at combination of products and services to insure your network is secure. Based on your specific needs, you might need physical security combined with an IDS, or an IPS combined with a SIEM program if you don't have to worry about the physical security. The possibilities are endless. Each network is different and each network is designed for its own unique purpose. What you should do is evaluate the needs of your network and implement the proper security features and implement proper training for users and support staff. Lastly, you have to insure you stay one step ahead of the hackers and this is accomplished by keeping your security programs up to date and your rule bases current.

Overview of this book
Computer networks are increasing at an exponential rate and the most challenging factor organisations are currently facing is network security. Breaching a network is not considered an ingenious effort anymore, so it is very important to gain expertise in securing your network. The book begins by showing you how to identify malicious network behaviour and improve your wireless security. We will teach you what network sniffing is, the various tools associated with it, and how to scan for vulnerable wireless networks. Then we’ll show you how attackers hide the payloads and bypass the victim’s antivirus. Furthermore, we’ll teach you how to spoof IP / MAC address and perform an SQL injection attack and prevent it on your website. We will create an evil twin and demonstrate how to intercept network traffic. Later, you will get familiar with Shodan and Intrusion Detection and will explore the features and tools associated with it. Toward the end, we cover tools such as Yardstick, Ubertooth, Wifi Pineapple, and Alfa used for wireless penetration testing and auditing. This book will show the tools and platform to ethically hack your own network whether it is for your business or for your personal home Wi-Fi.
