Nowadays, it's almost unimaginable for any business to not be equipped with computers, regardless of whether it's construction or a high-tech company. If a business is equipped with multiple computers they're almost always via a local area network. The networks can be more or less sophisticated and consequently costlier or more affordable.
Computer network management is the process of administering, managing, and operating a data network, using a network management system.

The advantages of Computer Network Management
1. Security considerations
Local Area Network security can be both a help and a hindrance. Comprehensive security is beneficial because it provides a central and safe strategy for data access and disaster recovery. All information is protected by the design and implementation of the network security solution.
On the other hand, interconnecting computers in local area networks creates a security risk, since doing so makes it technically possible for intruders to access many machines on the network at once.
2. Cost considerations
Installing a local area network is a relatively expensive project. Servers, cabling, switches, routers, and software can all be expensive and should never be purchased without expert advice. Keeping the network operating and secure also requires a lot of resources and can be costly.
Surprisingly, a local area network can bring several cost savings. Sharing resources avoids the need to purchase equipment for each individual. Even more important is the security that a local area network can provide.
