Server and Workstation Hardening

Improve the resiliency of your systems against attack

Acumenis can bolster the resiliency of your company's servers and workstations, often without the need for any additional investment in security products. We mitigate entire classes of attack in many environments by simply taking a considered approach to server and workstation configurations. We make use of features and techniques that are readily available, but too often neglected.

Many available security features are disabled to prevent disruption to staff, or due to application compatibility. We're experienced in deploying these technologies in ways that allow staff to work unimpeded, while also ensuring that they're not exposing the organisation to unnecessary risk.

Acumenis have specialist skills in Application Whitelisting and Two-Factor Authentication deployments.

We help protect your devices from attack

Acumenis take a pragmatic approach to hardening servers and client devices, ensuring they're protected against each stage of an attack:

  • Initial attack vectors, such as exposure to malicous attachments and websites, or weaknesses in remote access technologies
  • Persistence techniques, which allow attackers to remain in an environment, often unnoticed
  • Privilege escalation techniques, which are used by attackers to gain additional control over systems
  • Credential hygeine, to prevent passwords from being cracked or exposed
  • Lateral movement, whereby attackers or malware tries to spread from one machine to another
