As pretty much every aspect of modern life is now governed via technology, staying safe in what many are referring to as the “digital age” has never been more crucial. With threats of viruses, hacking, and our personal information and details falling into the wrong hands it is simply essential that we ensure we do all that we can protect ourselves online by utilising the most effective security resources currently at our disposal. Some servers for example, can actually be hacked in as short an amount of time as less than one hour after being placed online if the necessary precautions and security measures have not been implemented. Studies have revealed that the majority of exploits occur due to failed security measures, missing patches, weak passwords, and other basic errors that could be so easily avoided with a little time and care. The last thing you want is the wrong people gaining access to your servers and accessing private details and information, yet if certain safeguards and security measures have not been implemented it could be extremely easy to do by somebody who knows what they’re doing. Say you’re using a windows VPS, you should be especially aware of certain tasks that could be required to keep your server secure and updated. Here we’ll be taking a look at a few things you can do to help secure and protect your windows VPS.
