Network security is the technology which is designed to protect the integrity of the network and data from breaches, threats, unauthorized access, modification. This is part of cyber security.

Nowadays, it has become a significant part because if you are uploading any data or confidential things using the internet and think that it is safe, attackers can breach the data and leak confidential information or steal money. So, that is why it is necessary for your network.

Network Security is a process that involves securing the computer network infrastructure. The Network administrator or the system administrator enforces the security policy that is required to protect the network and the resources that are required to access the network. The process of a network security system depends on the level of protection and includes security application, network monitoring in addition to hardware components to raise the overall security of the computer network. This system is typically on layers of protection and consists of multiple components including networking monitoring and security software.
