Configuration analysis takes an in-depth look at servers, databases, and devices to ensure the setup aligns with security best practices.
By identifying and rectifying security vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, the overall security of your IT infrastructure is significantly enhanced.
The analysis delves into a multitude of system checks including Network Services, Processes, and System Variables. Assessing available network services, verifying run processes, and system variables helps ensure they are all secure and optimized. Disk Space and Encryption refer to the separation of disk space and the encryption mechanisms employed which are analysed to ensure your sensitive data is adequately protected. Additional Security Mechanisms encompass a comprehensive review of security mechanisms, kernel-level security measures, jails, chroot, BSD security levels, host IDS, host firewall, file integrity checker, antivirus, and SELinux. System Updates and Scheduled Tasks imply that we verify if system updates are up to date and assess scheduled tasks for potential security risks. Logging System and Security in Boot Phase means we evaluate the logging system for any potential vulnerabilities and verify the server's security during the boot phase. OS Management and Shell Command History involve a review of the operating system management mechanism and shell command history to identify potential operational risks.
A thorough review of your database configuration will include Hardening Mechanisms and Client Communication. Implemented hardening mechanisms are tested, such as default users, database partitioning, log storage, and unusual events showing in logs. Additionally, we test the cryptographic mechanisms used for client authentication and data transfer. Database Architecture and RDBMS Service involve a general review of database architecture including authorization mechanisms, authentication, privilege segmentation, views, and stored procedures. Moreover, we analyse RDBMS service on a network level for further insights into your database's security status.
Configuration Analysis is a process that involves a thorough analysis of servers, databases, and devices within an organization's IT infrastructure. The aim is to ensure that the configuration of these elements aligns with security best practices, in order to minimize vulnerabilities and bolster the overall security posture.
Configuration Analysis can uncover a multitude of issues, such as incorrect user privileges, insecure default settings, unnecessary open ports, and outdated software versions. These, if left unchecked, can become potential entry points for attackers.
A Configuration Analysis can enhance the overall security of your IT infrastructure by identifying and rectifying security vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. It helps in maintaining system integrity, ensuring data privacy, and achieving regulatory compliance.
The cost of a Configuration Analysis depends on the complexity and size of the IT environment in question. For an accurate quote, please get in touch with our sales team.
A Configuration Analysis is performed by conducting a detailed review of the system configurations, comparing them against industry best practices and security standards. Any discrepancies identified are then reported, along with recommendations for remediation.
