Workstation and Server Hardening
Keeping computer systems secure is an absolute need for any business. We are experts at configuring multi-tier layers of protection.
Today, technology is evolving rapidly, software and hardware are changing on a daily basis. It can be difficult to keep your servers and network secure from the latest exploits and attack techniques. Pegas Technology Solutions has computer experts on staff to ensure that your network is secure all the time. We have developed comprehensive multi-layered security measures to protect your network and your servers. We employ intrusion detection systems, instruction prevention systems, network firewalls, server firewalls, server hardening, network hardening, etc. We take your security very seriously and will help protect from any attack.
Hackers employ many methods to get into your network, like email phishing scams, password hacking, SQL injection, social engineering, fake login websites, fake access point, email attachments, etc. One of my personal favorite phishing scam we have encountered was a team that dropped flash drives in the employee parking lot with exploits on them. One of the employees plugged one of the drives into the computer to check to see the contents, and it installed a keylogger on the system. It emailed the hackers every keystroke the employee input through the keyboard. Fortunately for our client, he had an intrusion prevention systems and a logging server that is monitored, and we were able to detect the unauthorized access and disable the employee’s account. After that the client had us implement a USB group policy that wouldn’t allow USB drives to be detected on any systems in the office.
We perform periodic security audits that include penetration testing, policy review based on organizational changes, the physical expectation of equipment, retire outdated firewall rules, and log reviews. After that, we make a recommendation and implement the new policies and firewall rules to mitigate any new threats.
Benefits of Desktop and Server Installation
When we perform a custom installation there are typically many dependencies that the software depends on. We look at the systems requirements and configure the server accordingly, we don’t like unnecessary modules that the software doesn’t depend on. We configure it properly, we install only required dependencies, preform test, and ensure that the server is optimized for the software.
The default installation script for most applications can leave you vulnerable, to exploits and hackers. We solve all of these inconsistency that the script doesn’t cover. We secure all critical folders, set the proper permissions that the application needs, and we configure the firewall rules to block hackers from your server and applications.
With any configuration of a software and server, there is always basic wanted to be changed that will allow the solution to better serve your business. This could include a custom designed template, a basic module, or a full blow component, and we can develop that for you. Check out our development services.
Every project is different and depending on the amount of traffic the application will be receiving will depend on the configuration. Pegas Technology Solutions engineers are extremely knowledgeable about how to scale an application properly. We will match the resources to only what you need.
