In the mean time, here are some basic things your company should consider, when looking into the prospect of an internet server:
Do you use FTP?...Hmmm...Well, do your users use it to connect to your server from *outside* your local network?...
Well, consider this: FTP uses plain-text passwords for user authentication. That means any user FTPing to your server from outside your network, is giving out their password to anyone using a network sniffer...Ouch.
Our solution? Try using WinSCP instead.
WinSCP is a client application that works very much like your ftp client, but it uses an encrypted protocol, thereby ensuring that your security is not compromised by unwanted guests.
Now, you are probably wondering 'What other applications are vulnerable?'. Well, if you have ever used telnet, be aware that it has the same problem.
You may have noticed the link sends you to the OpenSSH site. That is because it is Open Source, which we encourage whenever possible. However, if your company is interested in a commercial version, there are many to choose from, but we think Secure CRT by Vandyke Software is among the best.
