How can you protect your computer network system?

Your computer network is an integral part of the way you both live and work. Whether it's your home network or the network that serves your workplace, there are some key investments you should make to help protect yourself. Here are some ideas to consider.

Improve Wifi Signal

WiFi can help improve your productivity by untethering you from your defined workstation, allowing you to stay connected wherever you go. To improve your WiFi signal further, you might want to consider investing in wireless antennas, or cell antennas, to help boost your available signal range.

You can find a range of affordable wireless antennas here.

Surge protection

In the event your equipment remains plugged in, investing in surge protection is a wise move. Surge protectors help to protect against the risk of damage from the excess current of a surge by monitoring the current and diverting excess current to the ground whenever a surge is detected. Surge protectors can be used on any mains power point you are plugging into, and can also be used directly at your ethernet port.

Proper cooling

One way many networks suffer damage is through improper cooling. Few realise how important proper cooling is, especially in the case of data and server cabinets. These often hold vital information, and overheating can cause them to fail. Investing in rack-mounted fans can help to ensure proper airflow is maintained, directing warm air out of the cabinets and ensuring it's properly vented.

Understanding best practices

There's no better way to protect your home or work network than with knowledge and information. Understanding the correct ways equipment should be used, safe browsing habits, how to identify potentially malicious software before it has a chance to infect the network, and so much more, can all play a huge part. It's important to identify key points of possible network damage, and take appropriate steps to protect them.
