What is a Wide Area Network (WAN)?

In its simplest form, a wide-area network (WAN) is a collection of local area networks (LANs) or other networks that communicate with one another.  A WAN is essentially a network of networks, with the Internet the world's largest WAN.

These networks are often established by service providers that then lease their WAN to businesses, schools, governments or the public. These customers can use the network to relay and store data or communicate with other users, no matter their location, as long as they have access to the established WAN. Access can be granted via different links, such as virtual private networks (VPNs) or lines, wireless networks, cellular networks or internet access.

What is the Difference Between a LAN and WAN?

There are many different forms of area networks, but one of the most common networks outside of a Wide Area Network (WAN) is the Local Area Network, or LAN.

WAN's can exist globally, without correlation to a physical location through the use of a leased network provider, LAN's exist within a limited area. LAN's can be used to access a greater WAN (such as the internet), but only within the area where the LAN’s infrastructure can reach.

Network Security

Zero trust your cloud workloads

amnet Protects your network, infrastructure and all your traffic from external cyberattacks.

Unfortunately, hackers and cyberattackers are persistent and devious, which means you must proactively leverage networking security tools to establish and maintain an effective line of defense.  expert monitoring and management of customer-owned security infrastructure on a global scale, with proactive management platforms and capabilities to ensure the safeguard of your critical enterprise assets and infrastructure.


Network Security Types

There are quite a few different networking security tools you can incorporate into your line-up of services.
The following list is by no means exhaustive, but available security tools can include:

Antivirus and Anti-Malware Software

Malware, or “malicious software,” is a common form of cyberattack that comes in many different shapes and sizes. Some variations work quickly to delete files or corrupt data, while others can lie dormant for long periods of time and quietly allow hackers a back door into your systems. The best antivirus software will monitor network traffic in real time for malware, scan activity log files for signs of suspicious behavior or long-term patterns, and offer threat remediation capabilities.

Application Security

Each device and software product used within your networking environment offers a potential way in for hackers. For this reason, it is important that all programs be kept up-to-date and patched to prevent cyberattackers from exploiting vulnerabilities to access sensitive data. Application security refers to the combination of hardware, software, and best practices you use to monitor issues and close gaps in your security coverage.

Distributed denial of service prevention

Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are becoming increasingly common. They function by overloading a network with one-sided connection requests that eventually cause the network to crash. A DDoS prevention tool scrubs incoming traffic to remove nonlegitimate traffic that could threaten your network, and may consist of a hardware appliance that works to filter out traffic before it reaches your firewalls.

Email Security

Email security software works to filter out incoming threats and can also be configured to prevent outgoing messages from sharing certain forms of data.  Email is an especially important factor to consider when implementing networking security tools. Numerous threat vectors, like scams, phishing, malware, and suspicious links, can be attached to or incorporated into emails. 


Firewalls are another common element of a network security model. They essentially function as a gatekeeper between a network and the wider internet. Firewalls filter incoming and, in some cases, outgoing traffic by comparing data packets against predefined rules and policies, thereby preventing threats from accessing the network.

Mobile device security

The vast majority of us have mobile devices that carry some form of personal or sensitive data we would like to keep protected. This is a fact that hackers are aware of and can easily take advantage of. Implementing mobile device security measures can limit device access to a network, which is a necessary step to ensuring network traffic stays private and doesn’t leak out through vulnerable mobile connections.

What is Network Security?

According to the SANS Institute, network security is the process of taking preventative measures to protect the underlying networking infrastructure from unauthorized access, misuse, malfunction, modification, destruction or improper disclosure. Implementing these measures allows computers, users and programs to perform their permitted critical functions within a secure environment.

Securing a network requires a complex combination of hardware devices, such as routers, firewalls and anti-malware software applications. Government agencies and businesses employ highly skilled information security analysts to implement security plans and constantly monitor the efficacy of these plans.

Why is Network Security Important?

Network security is important because it keeps sensitive data safe from cyber attacks and ensures that the network is usable and can be trusted.

Network security management may involve a wide variety of security tools, for both hardware and software.
