How to Improve Your Server’s Security

Post  John23 on Sun Aug 28, 2011 11:57 pm

With a growing number of internet hackers today, no website or network can be secured and immune to attacks even if these are not connected to the internet. The good news is that there can be a lot of security measures to be done to keep a well managed server. Site administrators must do all they can to improve their website’s security.

Using a firewall on your web servers is one way to keep a secured and managed server. This can be your first line of defense against any attack. A firewall is simply a software or hardware that keeps problems from spreading throughout your network. To improve your web server security, the firewall should be placed at all access points. It may not guarantee that your website will be hacker proof, but at least it can be a good starting point.

Website security is one major concern of any e-commerce business. Site administrator should ensure that only authorized persons can access network resources while keeping hackers at bay. To have a secured and managed server, site administrators must put strong security policy in place, keep all equipment up-to-date and set appropriate access rights. This may not keep hackers away but having strong security measures might be enough to keep threats away from your web servers.

According to me for dedicated server security, it is recommended that you consider a dedicated hardware firewall with the server as it is possible for you to block some IP's from a network incase it is found that there are some hack attempts performed from those IP's.
