Server hardening is a process of general system hardening which involves the secure use of advanced safety measures in the hardware, firmware, and software layers of data, ports, components, function, and permissions of a server.
The process of updating or installing additional security measures to safeguard both standard and third-party apps installed on your server is known as software application hardening, or simply application hardening.
Patching and installing sophisticated security measures to secure a server's operating system is known as operating system hardening (OS). Automatically installing updates, patches, and service packs are one of the greatest ways to establish a hardened state for the operating system.
Database hardening is protecting both the contents of a digital database and the database management system (DBMS), which is the database application that users use to store and analyze data in a database.
Database hardening is primarily comprised of three steps:
The following are examples of database hardening techniques:-
Network hardening is the process of securing the basic communication infrastructure of multiple servers and computer systems that are connected to a network.
Network hardening is accomplished primarily through the installation of an intrusion prevention system (IPS) or intrusion detection system (IDS), both of which are typically software-based. These applications automatically monitor and report suspicious network activity, assisting administrators in preventing unauthorised network access.
Network hardening techniques include:-
Simply reduce the number of potential entry points an attacker could use to gain access to your system from the start.
It usually involves securing a computer system's software, but also its firmware and other system elements, in order to reduce vulnerabilities and the risk of the entire system being compromised.
Our value proposition is our custom-made services. Yes, we agree that one size fits all, but we believe that each organization has its own set of requirements that do not suit the one-size-fits-all model. As a result, we tailor our services to each client's needs and place an emphasis on manual validation of any false positives. A keen mind can uncover what machines can't. Another feather in our cap is end-to-end services. Following the completion of a project, we give support with all security requirements.
