Server security"> Of course, practicing good security in general will help a great deal in securing SQL Server. Using vulnerability-checking applications and patch management tools will help IT managers find vulnerable systems, especially embedded MSDE engines. In addition, any applications that attach to the SQL Server database must be secure against common holes and exploits. If your applications are full of holes, securing SQL Server wont help. Finally, its important to educate yourself about SQL Server. There are excellent books available that go into great detail about configuring and securing SQL Server and Windows server systems.Labs Director Jim Rapoza can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
Its also a good idea to frequently check Microsoft developer boards on SQL Server, where one can often find information on late-breaking problems as well as advanced tweaks and settings that can make SQL Server deployments more secure.
