A server can provide many features & fill many roles; DC, DHCP, DNS, VPN, network files, AD & more. None of these roles should be exposed to unnecessary threats & must be secured. Server security is paramount for any server; however, every company’s requirements differ. Secure IO stand out in that we don’t recommend anything that is not required, only what is necessary.
In 2017, 49% of reported successful attacks on companies were due to viruses & malware with 27% being targeted attacks. Without effective technical & administrative controls in place, an internal server is susceptible to exploitation from these attacks. Increase your server security to reduce the risk.

At the centre of every large network is a server that manages one or many roles within a company. If this server is to be exploited, there might be catastrophic failure of key roles that cause downtime, performance loss or even loss of company or client data. If this is an acceptable risk, read no further; however, in a digital world, this is unfortunately not largely an acceptable risk. A server can be exploited by internal or external threats, the security does not start at the server level, it ends there; as such, Secure IO investigate each case on its own merits. Internal threats may not be a problem, should staff be close family members; however, casual employees with no inherent loyalties to the company introduce risks which require mitigation strategies. External threats similarly introduce risks & must be appreciated as potential risks to the company operations.
Updating server software is all well and good. But if a malicious hacker gets into the data center, there will be hell to pay.
Regardless of the size of your business, cyber-criminals who want to access your network will take advantage of anything.
For all too many companies, it’s not until after a security breach has occurred that web security best practices become a priority.
