Why is my network susceptible to online threats?

Your network is connected to a large public network, called the Internet. This can be compared to your house in your neighborhood. When we install internet from your Internet Service Provider, you have built a driveway from your home to the street – the network between you and all the homes around you. You can now drive anywhere you want with your car using the road network, but so can everyone else – who has an internet connection. Just like you would install a fence and a front door to your house, you have to install the same for your internet connection. This is not provided by default by your Internet Service Provider, and therefore we purchase products such as Antiviruses, VPN’s, Anti-Malware, etc – the gate and front door to our Internet connections. If you don’t have these products installed on your network, or network devices your are susceptible to someone just walking in.
