FAQ – How do I know if my server is secure?
The short answer to that question is that a server that is kept patched and up to date is more secure and leaves no easy access for hackers and cybercriminals.
On that subject, enabling automatic updates regarding security and other important features helps to ensure that the server isn’t susceptible to vulnerabilities.
When transferring files to and from a server, you want to minimize the risk of hackers compromising your data. Using “File Transfer Protocol Secure” and “SSH File Transfer Protocol” (also called FTPS or SFTP in short) encrypts your files, protecting and keeping them secure all the way, and making them less interesting for cybercriminals.
Here are some easy steps to keep your server secure:
Make sure that your operating system (for example Windows) and server are up to date to close security gaps
Create secure passwords for your server accounts, and set expiration dates on temporary accounts so they don’t fall into oblivion
Only activate the protocols you really need
For extra security use a reverse proxy, and also run the server behind a firewall
