DMZ a must

by jlepine In reply to Security Solutions: Secur ...

I have my secure FTP sitting as a stand alone server in a DMZ. I use different user ID's a and strick password policies for all users. The ftp root is sitting on a separate drive than system and NTFS permissions on all the folders.

I allow passive mode for transfer. It is virus protected with Trend Micro, and heavily monitored. Hopefully this is enough to protect the server.

Good configuration and wise choice to put it in your DMZ.
