Dedicated server? Check. Fully functioning and running smoothly? Check.
Server Security? The most common response to that question is normally “I think we have a firewall?”
A firewall is a critical first step to keeping your server and clients protected from hackers, but it’s just that…a first step. Firewalls act as the first line of defense and give you the ability to stop a specific IP or range of IP address, but what happens if a hacker decides to attack your server AFTER they’ve passed through the firewall as a normal, everyday visitor?
In our experience, that’s where the majority of hacking occurs — when a hacker is though your firewall going through ports you need to leave open — and where your server security is truly tested.
As we know, the cost of a compromised server can easily add up to thousands of dollars in cleanup, data restores, migrations, lost clients, and a soiled reputation. So why leave you business and clients in the hands of a firewall alone?
