Computer hacking concepts extend to every nook and cranny of what we work with on a daily basis. Front and center are Windows-based servers. A large part of what I do in my work performing internal security vulnerability assessments – a.k.a. pen tests and audits – involves Windows servers. There’s so much you can do to build up Windows server security and so much you can take to bring it down. I recommend both approaches. Here are two pieces I’ve written that cover each:
The very best Sysinternals tools for Windows server security
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
