Server Hardening is the process of enhancing server security through a variety of means which results in a much more secure server operating environment. This is due to the advanced security measures that are put in place during the server hardening process.
We work with brand managers, marketers, PR or social media teams, and even other agencies to deliver social media marketing services that generate measurable business results.
Server Hardening, probably one of the most important tasks to be handled on your servers, becomes more understandable when you realize all the risks involved. The default config of most operating systems are not designed with security as the primary focus. Instead, default setups focus more on usability, communications and functionality.
To protect your servers you must establish solid and sophisticated server hardening policies for all servers in your organization. Developing a server hardening checklist would likely be a great first step in increasing your server and network security.
Make sure that your checklist includes minimum security practices that you expect of your staff. If you go with a consultant you can provide them with your server hardening checklist to use as a baseline.
