CloudTech helps clients of all sizes and technical abilities to get the most out of their (mt) Media Temple services. This article discusses a specific On-Demand service: the Security Audit.

The CloudTech Security Audit service will examine your server configurations, as well as the software running on your server, in an attempt to identify potential opportunities for security enhancements. The Security Audit service will inspect elements such as the following:

Server Level

  • SSH Security
  • Firewall Configuration
  • Suspicious User Accounts
  • Presence Of Defensive Software Such As Fail2Ban

Application Level

  • Outdated/Vulnerable versions of common CMS and components
  • Presence Of Known Software Vulnerabilities
  • Insecure File Permissions


The CloudTech Security Audit service does not provide penetration testing for your websites, only a basic audit of server settings and installed software.
