Keep your GpsGate Server secure

Hosted and on-site servers

# Make sure you always have all plugins up to date under SiteAdmin > Plugins. All "green".

# The AccessFilter plugin makes it possible for you to control which IP addresses can access your GpsGate Server.

# Make sure you only assign one physical person per login (username). And in this way you know "who did what". 

# Use Roles and Features/Privileges to make sure a user can not access features not needed for his work.

# See exactly which user did what using User Actions. You find it under SiteAdmin > System Tools > User Actions.

# See exactly which user was logged into the system from which IP and during which time. You find it under SiteAdmin > System Tools > Activity.

# Set inactive users to logout automatically. You do this in SiteAdmin under Applications > [Select app.] > Automatic logout.

Server on-site

Do not use a browser on your Windows server for casual surfing! Do not open and read emails on your Windows server! Never install software from the Internet that you do not 100% need and know what it is!

# Make sure you always have the latest Windows Updates from Microsoft installed.

# Use a firewall, and only keep the ports opened that you need.

# Be very restrictive on which software you install on the server.

# Secure your GpsGate Server with a dedicated Windows user

# Enable HTTPS for the GpsGate Server site in IIS.

# If using HTTPS, make sure to disable SSL 2.0 and 3.0, which are insecure and used by default:

# Enable X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN to avoid Clickjacking. ( )
