Upon my initial assessment of your company’s network system I analyzed five areas of concerns. Per your request I have constructed a secondary analysis consisting on how to respond to these areas.

I am suggestion to configure the external firewall to a screening firewall. With this deterrent in place and managed it would block most common types of security threats.
