You have chosen to sponsor your bid up to a maximum amount of .
We have a MediaTemple (dv) Dedicated-Virtual 4.0 server. It is running plesk 11.
Please provide proposal for phase 1 (this will be included in your quote).
Phase 1 Initial configuration/hardening
Install/Configure Atomic Secured Linux, this (ASL). the license for ASL will be acquired by us. OR provide other suggestions for firewall..
Since this tool automates and secure the system, it simplifies the hardening process. If you have other recommendations, please advise.
Other tasks that are required not covered by ASL are:
Configure SSH public key authentication for remote administration.
Configure sftp for secure file transfer to/from server and phase out ftp
Review/Harden CMS (Plugins for security, passwords, etc)
Design/Implement a Backup Solution according to requirements and client's resources
NOTE1: ASL is recommended because our environment is using Plesk and CSF is known to be incompatible with Plesk. Also will help to reduce the amount of time required for administration for normal operations in the long run
You will need to collect our requirements, Configure, installation, documentation and monitoring of the initial setup. PLEASE PROVIDE # of hours to complete the above project. Please provide cost per hour and total cost (this will be your quote for this project).
Phase 2 Ongoing administration (we will keep this separate, do not include in actual quote but submit private message with proposal for this phase)
Administration of the server
Patches and Upgrades (OS and applications)
CMS Patches and Upgrades
Monitoring Server Performance and Security
Take Proactive Actions for Server's Performance/Security
For phase 2 please provide proposal in message only here. We will most likely create a separate project for any agreed ongoing work.
Thank you for applying/contacting us. Please only apply if you have referenceable experience in the above.
