Security is a vital component of a server as a hacked server not only cause data loss & down time, but also affect the reputation of the firm. A secure server keeps tension away. Periodic auditing needs to be carried out on servers to ensure that they are safe.
We take care of the following, but not limited to, while performing security auditing:
Checking Server softwares versions for vulnerblities
Ensures a tight firewall is in place
Check for unauthorized access to the server
Scanning for virues and rootkits
Ensure all applications are secured
Setup various security tools & scripts that alerts of security issues to run periodically
Startup services tweaking
SSH security hardening
Restrict user privileges
Make sure system binaries are restricted for users
These above checks ensure that the server is stable and not having any issues. We can change the duration of server auditing as per our client's needs.
Server auditing tells us how well and updated is the server. Server auditing at regular intervals is a must to:
Keep the server uptodate
Ensure data integrity
