10 Steps To Secure Linux Server

Linux servers are already extremely secure by default that’s why 100% of supercomputers, most of the top 1 million servers, and top 25% of websites on the internet run on Linux. Besides having security tools in place, users should follow a few steps to further secure Linux servers. Learn about 10 steps you should take to secure your servers in this tutorial.

As we all know nothing is perfect. Things can go wrong if proper precautions are not taken. Once in a while, Linux tools encounter serious vulnerabilities and due to the nature of these tools (open-source), all tools quickly receive security fixes.

When it comes to compromising a Linux server, most of the time users’ actions are responsible for it. After the compromise, we get to know the compromise could easily be prevented by implementing a simple firewall rule.
