Elevator Pitch: The most common cause of security breaches is human error. It's very easy to misconfigure a single setting on a server that could result in a server breach. AuditShark looks for these problems and shows how to fix them
Founder: Mike Taber
Description: You shouldn’t need to be a security specialist to be able to secure your own servers. That’s the simple idea that brought AuditShark to life. A thorough assessment of a single server can take hours and usually requires specialized security knowledge. Best practices state that you should also revalidate your server security settings on a regular basis.
Unfortunately, nobody has the time to perform this simple, but necessary validation because they’re too busy. Security tends to take a back seat in smaller companies because it’s tedious, time consuming, and there are a million little details and special cases. Outsourcing these tasks doesn’t make economic sense, given the need for an expensive security specialist.
Relying on your system vendor to provide you with a secure out of the box configuration isn’t generally a good idea. As you install patches, software or make various configuration changes to the machine, there are inevitably settings that change in subtle ways to make the system less secure.
If something is misconfigured, it’s not a matter of if it will be hacked. It’s a matter of when. And that might be a lot sooner than you think with all the automated scripts running on the Internet. Hope is not a strategy where the security of your servers is concerned. So what’s a small business to do?
We can help. AuditShark provides you with a second set of eyes on your servers to help keep them secure.
AuditShark runs daily scans on your servers and compares its configuration against a database of hundreds of industry standard, best practice configurations. Then it pinpoints the settings that could leave your computers more vulnerable to attacks and shows you exactly how to fix them.
You’ll receive daily reports regarding the overall security of your servers and we will notify you if any of your security settings change out of a known good state. Based on your infrastructure and security posture, we’ll also provide you with actionable advice to help keep things running smoothly.
What used to take hours of work and a security specialist can now be accomplished in minutes by any system administrator.
