Helping to Secure Windows Small Business Server

You can configure your server running Windows SBS to be more secure by configuring password policies, configuring access permissions, implementing an antivirus solution, and physically securing the server.

  • To configure strong password policies on your network, see Configuring password policies.
  • To configure remote access to be more secure by using Remote Web Workplace, Virtual Private Network access, or dial-up access, see Configuring secure remote access to the network.
  • To use predefined user templates, which help you assign the appropriate level of access when you create user accounts, see Granting access permissions.
  • To help protect your Windows SBS network from computer viruses, you should install an antivirus solution that helps prevent unauthorized access to your network, server, and client computers. For more information, see Implementing an antivirus solution.
  • Disk quotas can help limit the damage caused by users who save too many files on the server. For more information, see Limiting user disk space.
  • Physically securing your server can help prevent on-site attacks. For more information, see Physically securing the server.
  • You should rename the Administrator account on all computers in the Windows SBS domain, and especially on your server. For more information, see Renaming the Administrator account.
