Web Server Security Hardening

What Is Server Security Hardening?

This is the process of enhancing web server security through a variety of means which results in a much more secure server operating environment. This is due to the advanced security measures that are put in place during the server hardening process.

Why is it important?

Hardening your web server’s security is a must. Web servers are under attack 24/7/365 by cybercriminals, activists and governments as well as teens looking to impress their friends. The default configuration of most web servers are not typically implemented with security as the primary focus. This is due to the wide variety of scenarios in which a server might be implemented and used within an organization. Instead, default setups typically focus more on usability, flexibility and accessibility. By performing security hardening, not only will the server be less prone to external attacks and exploits, but it will help keep your information out of the hands of unauthorized persons.
