Why Monitor Server Changes?

Actively monitoring your servers allows Net Friends to proactively address issues, improve security, and ensure the smooth operation of your IT infrastructure. Any change needs to be evaluated to determine the impact on the performance and security of your server.  

Server Monitoring Essentials

Server change monitoring is a proactive strategy that not only protects sensitive data but also enhances operational efficiency and maintains transparency in IT governance. The key benefits are:

Maintain Security

Server change monitoring can alert you to unauthorized access, file modifications, or suspicious activity that could indicate a breach. This allows for a quick response to mitigate potential damage. Tracking changes to sensitive data can ensure its integrity and prevent unauthorized deletion or modification.

Optimize Performance

Monitoring changes in resource usage, application performance, and network traffic can help pinpoint bottlenecks and troubleshoot performance issues. This allows for potential issues to be identified before they lead to system failures, which means less time offline and uninterrupted business operations.

Compliance and Audit Requirements

In some industries, compliance guidelines require tracking server modifications to safeguard data security, maintain confidentiality, and uphold integrity. Utilizing monitoring solutions demonstrates adherence to these standards. Documenting system modifications are important to demonstrate during regulatory audits and in-house inquiries. This process shows transparency and accountability within IT procedures.

Once your servers are onboarded, they will enter a state characterized by configured settings, permissions, and other parameters designed to fortify server defenses. Our continuous monitoring process tracks any changes to your server, authorized or not, while documenting and reporting each one, regardless of its impact. This vigilance plays a crucial role in maintaining the security of your servers, and ensuring they remain protected against potential vulnerabilities.
