Server Hardening

Why Harden Your Server?

Did you know that each and every server which was ever connected to the internet is exposed and vulnerable to hackers? Did you know that attackers sweep in to attempt a break in, within seconds of a server acquiring a public IP address?

Default server setup configurations are not equipped to combat security vulnerabilities. While some people will inevitably tell you that all it takes is a potent firewall to be secure, here’s some food for thought. A firewall is a critical piece of the security puzzle, yet it has to let invalid traffic, such as emails, web browsers, etc. right?

What most people are oblivious to is the fact that a lot of successful attacks managed to sneak into the very ports that firewalls allow into a server. This is the sole reason why all your servers which are connected to the internet are in need of hardening.

Server hardening fine-tunes your servers for optimum performance, enhanced reliability, and improved security. HOSTNOC’s professional server hardening services create a wholly secured server environment for your business to allow you some mental reprieve. So instead of leaving your servers exposed to a bevy of hacking attempts, let our state-of-the-art security measures safeguard the integrity of your server infrastructure.
