These are the things to look for in Network Security.

Firewall Systems – Ask for a network that has firewall systems which only allow access to specific ports as needed. All other ports are closed so the outside internet does not have access to the network.

Intrusion Prevention Systems – Ask for intrusion prevention systems which are used to scan incoming and outgoing network packets for signatures that may resemble a hack attempt. The intrusion prevention systems filter out all hack signatures that are recognized before they reach the network. This is another level of security some firms offer to prevent systems from being compromised.

Spam Prevention – Ask for a network that is protected in real-time from spam email.

Physical Security – Ask for a data center is equipped for security with a gated card reader for entry to the premises followed by card readers into the facility and locked cages.
