Which is better in securing networks? EIGRP or OSPF protocols

Hello! My task is to design a network in a workplace. The company using CISCO Router for my routers, 25 work stations and 3 CISCO Switch. I'm a little bit confuse about routing protocols. I can't decide which protocols I will be using by configuring networks. Maybe you guys give me advice whether i will be using EIGRP or OSPF protocols. Which of the two is the best protocol to secure my network? So that when someone tries to access my network illegally, they could not be able to connect or even access the server.

Help me to decide which of the two is the best!

Thank You looking forward to your answers

In my own opinion, I prefer EIGRP or Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol. It is more suitable for you to use if you are using all Cisco routers plus it is fast and supports multiple protocols. The EIGRP is more quiet compared to the OSPF when it comes to the stable network. OSPF requires to send link state database every 30 minutes which is very reluctant. While on EIGRP, you can also upgrade it easily into IGRP since both of their metrics are similar. EIGRP also reduces bandwidth usage and has an advance distance vector capabilities which is also an advantage.

  • It depends that under what conditions you are implementing your network. If it is with in a office then you can implement EIGRP as it supports more enhanced security.
  • But if you are arranging a network then you must need to look first that under what conditions you are implementing your network and what is your requirements and what kind of output you need form your network. All of this require networking experience and it can only by done by some administrator or some technical person. Also you need to know does your router supports your network protocol or not and then you can implement your desired protocol.

I hope this will help you a lot to make a decision.
