Security methods vs. technologies

What is the different between network-security methods and security technologies? Is it that network-security methods only include firewalls?


Methods are the procedures and written guides that define how security is implemented. Technologies are the mechanisms used to implement security.

Mechanisms -- not methods -- include firewalls, network intrusion-detection systems, antivirus software, VPN systems, etc.
