As organizations increase their dependence on networks for core business processes and increase access to remote sites and mobile workers via virtual private networks (VPNs), network security becomes more and more critical. In today’s networked era, information is an organization’s most valuable resource. Lack of customer, partner, and employee access to e-commerce and data servers can impact both revenue and productivity. Even so, most networks do not have the proper degree of security. Network Security Principles and Practices provides an in-depth understanding of the policies, products, and expertise that brings organization to this extremely complex topic and boosts your confidence in the performance and integrity of your network systems and services. Written by the CCIE engineer who wrote the CCIE Security lab exam and who helped develop the CCIE Security written exam, Network Security Principles and Practices is the first book to help prepare candidates for the CCIE Security exams.
