The Intricacies of Security Architectures

First off, let's align our ducks perfectly in a row. What exactly is our focus here? What do we mean by these so-called 'Security Architectures'? In a nutshell, we can place Security Architectures under the umbrella of network security. Security Architectures provide the framework and backbone that keeps a network secure against various types of threats. Really, they don't sound as daunting as they are! On this, you can trust me.

Security Architectures resemble an intricate puzzle, with different components fitting together to form a protected network. All elements, from firewalls and Intrusion Prevention Systems to VPNs and end point security, come together forming the powerful, unyielding stronghold we know as a Security Architecture.
