Hardening - EHAN TECH

Ehan Services


Servers play a very important role in the network of any organization or company. They form the necessary infrastructure to provide services and applications. There are different types of servers in the organization such as: email server, file server, financial server, database server and… whose maintenance is the protection of all data in the company and organization. Hardening is the implementation of methods that help improve server security. It is one of the defense mechanisms that is ignored despite its low cost compared to other mechanisms. Hardening is one of your defensive lines against attacker that should be given special attention. On the other hand, it imposes on you much less costs than other solutions. In fact, it is the best way to reduce vulnerabilities in technology applications, systems, infrastructure, hardware and other areas. By removing additional programs, ports, permissions, access, etc., attackers and malware have less opportunity to enter your IT system. 


Note: Hardening requires a targeted approach to auditing, identifying, closing, and controlling potential security vulnerabilities throughout your organization.

There are several types of herding activities, including:

Applied hardening
Operating system hardening
Server hardening
Database hardening
Network hardening

What is the importance of hardening for systems?

Due to the increasing number of cyber-attacks, it's not important to know whether you will face these attacks or not, but the timing is important. As a result, businesses need to take action to protect themselves and their customers from these attacks. It should be noted that system hardening should be an important part of effective defense against cyber-attacks. Because it protects your data and infrastructure.

There are several types of herding activities, including:

An “attack level” is a combination of all the defects that can be exploited by hackers. These vulnerabilities can occur in a variety of ways, including:

  • Default and hardcoded passwords
  • Passwords and other user information stored in plain text files
  • Software and operating system vulnerabilities
  • Poorly configured BIOS, firewalls, ports, servers, switches, routers, or other infrastructure components
  • Network traffic or unencrypted data
  • Lack of access controls 

You can ensure the security of your system with Ehan We are by your side to reduce vulnerabilities.

Vulnerabilities are a combination of all possible defects and backdoors in technology that can be exploited by hackers. These vulnerabilities occur in a variety of ways, including:

  • Default and hardcoded passwords
  • Passwords and other credit information stored in plain text files
  • Un-patch software and firmware vulnerabilities
  • Incorrect configuration of a firewall, port, server, switch, router, or other part of the infrastructure
  • Data-At-Rest
  • lack of high-level access controls

Ehan tries to offer the best solution in Hardening discussion. Of course, hardening diversity depends on the risks involved in technology, the resources available, and the priorities.  

What should be done in the discussion of hardening?

Audit of existing systems

A comprehensive audit of existing technologies should be performed at this stage. It is recommended to use penetration testing, vulnerability scanning, configuration management and other security audit tools to detect defects and prioritize corrections.

Develop a strategy for the hardening system

Hardening at the same time is not required for all systems. Instead, the largest deficiencies can be corrected based on the risks identified in the technology ecosystem using a step-by-step approach.

Patch vulnerabilities

Ensure a comprehensive and automated vulnerability detection and patching system.

What are the most important benefits of hardening and why should it be considered? 

Hardening is another line of defense against attacker that should be considered.
  • Prevent hacking and unauthorized intrusion into the operating system (So that in case of intrusion, the hacker can do the least he can. Or can do virtually nothing!)
  • Prevent the disclosure of important server information and data
  • Information integrity and no change in important data of the organization
  • Prevent operating system infection with a variety of viruses (Or in case of infection, the least damage will be done).
  • Business continuity (preventing system outages)

What is Ehan Hardening Services and how does it help you?

Ehan improves the performance of companies by securing their system. On the other hand, it imposes a much lower cost on you than other solutions and increasing security at the lowest cost.

Improve security by Ehan services, this means reducing vulnerabilities and the risk of security defects and preventing unauthorized access.
