A company wants you to create a network with a high degree of fault-tolerance.

The company is apparently concerned about which?

1.secure data connections between users.
2.the network not going down.
3.data mining by non-authorized users.

Wouldn't they be concerned about the network not going down?
Isn't that what fault tolerance is?

Yes, that is correct.

Yes. And to answer your next question, where you ask if it's correct, yes...it's correct then too (just trying to get a jump on it since I know it will be asked.)

To create a network with a high degree of fault-tolerance, the company would be primarily concerned about the network not going down. Fault tolerance refers to the ability of a system, in this case, a network, to remain operational even in the face of component failures or other issues. In other words, a fault-tolerant network is designed to minimize the impact of failures or disruptions, ensuring that the network remains functional and available to users.

While secure data connections and data mining by non-authorized users are important considerations for network security, they do not specifically relate to fault tolerance. Fault tolerance primarily focuses on maintaining continuous network operation and minimizing downtime.
