Every day, some 30,000 websites have been hacked (Sophos Lab sources). You do not want your business to be one of them. With malware and new threats appearing daily, one should always be on the alert. By hiring an expert server security services, you can prevent a security attack before it strikes your servers.
The main purpose of the server security process is to secure your server from various attacks and malware. This includes 24/7 monitoring of processes and vulnerable attacks and periodic server audits to detect any violations.
The network is an easy entry point for an attacker. The first thing we do is to secure the network of servers by blocking all unwanted ports from being accessed from external networks.
With design network systems by isolating confidential data from public networks and customizing network settings, we can harden them against large attacks such as SYN floods, DDOS attacks, etc.
Other security tasks include blocking false and incorrect connections, rate limiting ping rates, blocking blacklisted IPs, to prevent attacks.
In-depth server hardening
By configuring SSL / TLS in all server services, we can protect user data and credentials that are sniffed out by hackers. We need to protect everything from user account protection to file system security and a secure user account with a strong password that expires periodically and by strengthening a secure user access policy.
Other security tips include IP restrictions for administrator access, using 2 verification factors, locking accounts after many login failures and performing other security practices.
The file system is more secure by controlling each user’s access privileges, restricting execution of script privileges and preventing the execution of malware in vulnerable directories such as / tmp.
Web server security
The web server is the most vulnerable service on any server. This makes it vulnerable to various attacks that may affect web applications and related databases.
We need to configure the Web Application Firewall (WAFs) and malware scanners to block the attacks. All known attack patterns are blocked and signatures database is used to block all common attacks.
With customized security rules such as mode security, we can restrict web operations only to the required ones. All processes and uploads are scanned in a timely manner to detect and block any malicious nature.
Ensure web server configuration is done to protect it, by preventing disclosure of information, limiting web user privileges, disabling obsolete and insecure modules, and so on.
Restricting resource allocation per user helps prevent one user from abusing all web servers. We also restrict the user’s permission to block one user from viewing another user’s data.
Database server hardening
The databases form an important part of the server as it keeps a lot of important information. We may modify the database server to allow it to withstand information disclosure attacks.
Facing user privileges, storing databases and backups safely, these all play an important role in database server security. Enforcing strong passwords and blocking connections is another critical aspect.
