What all Do we Do for our Customers 24/7/365?

Included Monthly Services in Full Services Plan

  • We monitor your server 24/7 to ensure that your server is secure and working properly. All potential threats to security are handled immediately to minimize their business impact.
  • We monitor services running on your server 24/7 to ensure that your server is effectively doing its job. If your server is overstressed, we temporarily shut down low priority services to free up its resources for business critical services.
  • We have staff available at all times to support you and to assist you with your server. Should you need anything to make your business run more smoothly; we will be here to do our best to provide it.
  • You get 10 hours of dedicated time per month to have our experts manage your server and assist you with any issues you may have. (Please note 5 hours are allocated automatically to security and service monitoring. 5 hours are available for ticket support).
  • We install new applications in your server on request. The 5 hour per month support time can be applied to such tasks, as well as any other requested custom work.
  • Log Monitoring for Unusual Activity: Your logs are a vital part of telling how your server is performing. We routinely patrol event and application logs and take corrective actions if there are warnings or errors.
  • Logs of attackers are not useful unless prompt preventative action is taken. Therefore, our staff monitors your server and constantly adjusts your firewall to keep intruders out.
  • We test upgrades thoroughly as soon as your OS/Control Panel vendor releases them. As soon as they are stable for production use, we apply them to your server.
  • We have staff available for consultation if you have any security concerns or questions. We’ll notify you immediately if there is something happening on your server, advise you what action we have already taken, and allow you to discuss your options with one of our security professionals.

But first, we analyze and secure your Windows server…..
  • Thorough Security Assessment and Appraisal: We perform an initial scan to ensure that your server is safe and secure. We also evaluate if there are any potential vulnerabilities.
  • Hacker Elimination: We detect and eliminate any previously undetected worms, Trojans, and viruses by using a custom-designed procedure to stop intruders in their tracks.
  • Securing of Permissions: We prevent directory transversal by your users and applications, stopping them from getting into sensitive areas of your server.
  • Configuration of Logging Services: We configure your server’s logging to ensure all problems are caught the moment they show signs of occurrence.
  • System Control Configuration and Optimization: We make sure that your server is performing its best through configuration of the system control files, which is essential to the optimum operation of your server.
  • Shared Directory Security: We secure shared directories and ensure that hackers cannot operate in them.
  • Review of Firewall Settings: Our review of internal firewall and external paths to your server protect you from unauthorized connections (both in or out of your server), hackers and denial of service attacks.
  • Patching and Update of Operating System: We update your operating system with the latest available stable release of patches, closing security vulnerabilities that may have appeared in earlier revisions.
  • Access Security Enhancements: We consider this standard from EZSM. We utilize the most secure configuration of your administrator account to protect unauthorized attempts to access your server.
  • High Security Services Monitoring Setup: We setup a System and Service Integrity monitoring process using our custom application to prevent exploits of existing web applications.
  • Active Load and Resource Monitoring: We implement a custom checking system designed to give an advance warning of potential server issues. This is done to make a dramatic increase in server uptime and availability of services.
  • Port Monitoring with Hacker-Detection: For further peace of mind, we provide 24/7 Port monitoring to alert EZSM immediately so that we can block attacks before they cause any damage.
  • Upgrades to Pre-Installed Software: You only need one hole in your defenses to let a hacker through–don’t let that hole be on your server. We upgrade all your pre-installed software to the latest stable version released by your OS/Software vendor.
  • IPSEC Security Hardening: We assess the legitimate and required access points for your server for inbound data traffic and evaluate what is needed to prevent your server from sending sensitive data out of your server. Many security breaches are due to the fact that firewalls prevent unwanted traffic but rarely restrict any data from going out.
  • Deactivation of Unused/Insecure Services: This saves your valuable resources by deactivating the services you do not need. This ultimately boosts the speed and responsiveness of your server, as well as secures the services that hackers thrive on.
  • Setup Name Servers: We modify Hostname and check additional IP installation. We setup or reorganize DNS service and your name servers in a manner it runs in most secure and efficient manner. Most servers around the world are getting increasingly particular about identity and authenticity of traffic communicating with them. Compliance of your name servers to standards set by Internet is one of the criteria they use to accept mail and other communication from your server. In addition your own hostname allows you to personalize your server and enforce corporate branding on your server. These important details are often ignored by server administrators but a professional tweaking of name service alone is worth more than what we charge for our full service package because it improves your search engine placement.
