Server Hardening

Server hardening is designed to save you time and resources. Gammacom's expert security team will optimise your environment and make a series of modifications to your operating system and control panel installation to enhance the reliability of your server.

Gammacom also performs many other security tweaks to your server. All unnecessary services are disabled, SSH is hardened and kernel variables modified to add additional security.

We can lock down your server quickly and make sure you're getting the best performance possible.
