Why companies need internet security Online applications offer companies many benefits, but they also increase the risk of web attacks and vulnerability exploits. The internet by itself is a very insecure platform, but network security has improved drastically in recent years. This has resulted in many attackers turning to application-layer attacks, as many applications are permeated with insecure code, vulnerabilities and/or malicious code. Network security and application security are the two major areas of internet security, but other critical areas include firewalls, antivirus, email, social networking, chat/instant messaging and more.
