"Server Hardening, probably one of the most important tasks to be handled on your servers, becomes more understandable when you realise all the risks involved. The default config of most operating systems are not designed with security as the primary focus. Instead, default setups focus more on usability, communications and functionality. To protect your servers you must establish solid and sophisticated server hardening policies for all servers in your organisation. Developing a server hardening checklist would likely be a great first step in increasing your server and network security. "
