ACIT brings you golden tips to clear CCNA certification exam



The CCNA, a second level Cisco Career certification, is one of the highly rated certifications in the world. An associate level certificate for IT networking, CCNA boosts professional career of candidates with higher pay and better jobs.

ACIT Institute, which is a leading educationist in the field of international IT certifications, explains that a candidate with a CCNA certification is thorough with networking technologies.

For those looking to prepare for CCNA certification, ACIT has provided few tricks, tips and important notes to focus on.

Have a good understanding of CCNA
The CCNA exam offered by CISCO is comprehensive. It involves a number of topics based on TCP/IP studies. With a lot study, the exams can seem difficult to crack. However, ACIT tells that students should focus on ICDN mainly, which serves the base for all types of CISCO CCNA exams. Candidates should go through the length and breadth of the topics.

Prepare yourself mentally

It is crucial to ask why you exactly want to be CCNA certified and what positives the certificate will bring you. This will prepare you mentally for the exams. Make sure you set a target to crack the exams –perhaps within the next six months. Dedicate your time for studies accordingly. If your life is actively social, the next few months are certainly going to be difficult. Your friends and family members should understand and support your cause. Once you’ve achieved the certificate, you have all the time in the world!

Get the proper study material

There is a lot of controversy and misunderstanding about the appropriate study materials. ACIT doesn’t advise going overboard with books, simulators and study guides. In case you do not have access to study materials from reputed institutes like ACIT, your next best option includes CISCO’s own press books including ICND 1 and ICND 2 in the most updated editions. Not all books are easy to follow or define the topics clearly.

Schedule Practice Tests

No preparation is complete without taking practice tests. Set a deadline for yourself and try to take as many tests as you can. There is always room for improvement.

The best thing about preparing for CCNA exams is being able to explore and find out new concepts and theories. The ultimate job that you get with your CCNA certifications would expect you to be an expert and have practical knowledge of every networking topic. It is not without reason that CCNA is a globally recognized certification and attracts better salary and jobs. One must be dedicated towards studying and have patience. The rewards will follow themselves.

Why network security is important for your business



Protection of your computer network is vital. It plays a crucial role in preventing companies from falling prey to numerous fatal cyber attacks. Just like the popular saying goes, “It’s easier to put on slippers than to carpet the whole world”, setting up a rock-solid network security system in advance is always the best way to protect your expensive digital assets.

ACIT, a leading Mumbai-based network security training centre, understands the importance of network security. In this article, it talks about the common network threats and how network security is imperative for businesses.

What is Network Security?
Network Security is a specialized domain of computer networking. It involves a system administrator who protects the online network and keeps a check on the resources and assets linked to it. Typically, the entire system of network security is based on creating multiple protective layers of monitoring, security software and hardware components. These include Firewall, Intrusion prevention systems (IPS), Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), anti-virus and anti-spyware.
Coordination and well-planned functioning of these components assure effective overall security of the computer network from internet threats listed ahead.

Most Common Network Threats
Cyber threats that can hamper your business are:

      Spyware and adware
     Viruses, worms, and Trojan Horses
      Hackers’ attacks
      Identity theft
      Zero-day attacks, also called zero-hour attacks
      Data interception and theft
      Denial of service attacks

Importance of Network Security for Businesses
There are numerous business benefits of Network Security, such as:
      Complete protection against operational disturbances
      Protection of confidential business data and client details
      Reduced risk of legal actions associated with illegal hacking and data theft
      Enhanced productivity of web-based assets and employees
      Adherence to mandatory regulatory compliance


Network security, as the name suggests, secures a business network and protects the most important asset, which is the business's reputation.

ACIT Explains Five Main Features of Checkpoint Firewall


Role of a firewall is to control the traffic between external and internal networks. Firewall is the core of a reliable network security policy. According to the top educationist, ACIT Institute, networks are under constant threat. This is why developers keep inventing new firewalls besides upgrading the existing ones.
Checkpoint firewall is one of the most advanced firewall systems. ACIT has explained its main features below.

1.   It controls and detects application usage

Checkpoint firewall identifies, blocks, allows or limits usage of applications. It ensures your internet usage is safe and protected from different types of malware. With checkpoint firewall, you can block or limit usage of widgets and web applications like social networking, instant messaging, VoIP, video streaming, games and more.

2. Intrusion prevention

Checkpoint firewall secures your network by inspecting data packages crossing through the gateway. It is a fully loaded IPS (Intrusion Prevention System), providing geo-protections and regular, automated threat definition updates. Frequent updates are extremely important as threats get their own updates too.

3. Ease of expanding the firewall system

Security needs are bound to increase in this ever-growing world of Internet. A checkpoint firewall allows you to add plugins or add-ons to the existing software. Additional features can include threat extraction, data loss prevention and threat emulation.

4. Internal URL web filtration

The web filtering feature screens incoming URL requests. Checkpoint firewall uses this feature to determine whether URL request should be allowed or blocked. Web filtering is done by predefining few categories made up of URLs. In this way, complete web pages or sites containing objectionable content can be blocked.

5. Internal antivirus scanning

Checkpoint firewall comes up with an inbuilt antivirus. The team of ACIT ran a number of tests and the scanning system seemed highly effective. The antivirus engine will block or let the data go through, depending on the response from the antivirus engine.

ACIT institute has an experienced team of IT geniuses. While their team never underestimates the reach of malware, they do think checkpoint firewall system assures a well secured network to its user.

How To Secure Your Wi-Fi Network From Penetration




Unprotected Wi-Fi is probably the easiest mode for people to access your private network, engulf your internet, and cause you severe headaches with more spiteful behavior. Leaving your Wi-Fi network unlocked creates redundant vulnerability where non-malicious users can wipe off lots of our bandwidth unconsciously and malicious users can plagiarize using our IP as a cover up, explore your network and potentially gain access to your personal data, or even worse explains the experts from ACIT Institute. If you have never accessed your router’s control panel or have no idea about how to do it, now is the time to read ahead and give yourself a quick revision.

Update Your Router and Upgrade to Third Party Firmware preferably

At least you will have to visit the website of your Router’s manufacturer to ensure that there are no new updates. Router software is likely to be quite unwavering and releases are usually rare in between. If your manufacturer has issued an update (or quite a few) since you purchased your router it’s certainly time to upgrade.

Change Your Router’s Password

Each router ships with a default login/password arrangement. The literal combination differs from model to model but it’s simple enough to search for default that keeping it unchanged is just calling a big trouble. Open Wi-Fi pooled with the default password is basically leaving your complete network wide open for public.

Changing/Hiding Your SSID


You buy a router with a default SSID; typically something simple like “Wireless” or the trademark name like “Netgear”. There’s nothing erroneous with leaving it set as default. If you live in a quite populated area, still, it would seem right to change it to something unusual so as to distinguish it. Don’t set it to anything that classifies you.
