Chapter 7. SOHO Network Security > Network Security Measures

Network Security Measures

There are several SOHO LAN security measures that help ensure that SOHO LAN data is secure, its PC hosts are protected from viruses, and that the impact of DoS attacks are mitigated. To have a secure SOHO LAN all these measures must be implemented and monitored continually. If they are implemented and not monitored, then the SOHO LAN rapidly loses its protection from viruses and other external security threats.

Virus Scanning Programs

The most important SOHO LAN security measure is virus scanning programs. On several occasions virus attachments have been sent to me. Some have contained viruses themselves, while others no doubt directed my PC host to sites that contained virus-laden Web pages and software downloads. In these cases virus scanning software examined all files downloaded into my PC host, detected the virus, and quarantined the file so that it would not be inadvertently executed and infect my PC host with the virus.
