A server is likely to be the workhorse within your business’ IT system, as it processes requests for data, such as email, web documents and file transfers on a very regular basis. Protecting your server environment is essential, whether it’s an application server, file server, web server or database server. Because servers host such valuable information, they are often the target of threats, including viruses, worms, Trojan horses and DoS (denial-of-service) attacks.
Konnetix work closely with you to analyse and plan for the security of your business-vital systems. Taking steps, including those listed below, to minimise or negate any risks to your server environment.
Encryption and authentication
Allocating each server to a specific job function or purpose. Your web servers and email servers are likely to be accessed from outside the business, thereby making them public servers; and file or database servers containing confidential data to be allocated as private servers. This also includes the installing of access controls and encryption within all login sessions.
Installation of antivirus and firewalls
Konnetix install antivirus software on each server which delivers comprehensive protection again viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and another other malicious code. To ensure your data remains private and confidential, Konnetix will install a combination of software and hardware firewalls to your server and network.
Strengthening your current operating systems
Depending on the needs of your business, you may have several different servers, each of which has an operating system which is potentially vulnerable to security breaches. If your business uses an out-of-the-box operating system, it is not likely to be configured for maximum security. Konnetix will work closely with you to identify the unnecessary tools and update patches.
