One of the most important matters which people worry about when using a virtual server is the security.
Here we will try to present some useful tips to increase the security in windows virtual servers.
Choosing an operator system
It is very important to choose an operator system which the producer company (here we have Microsoft) provides the security updates for it.
Therefore, using windows server 2003 will not be a reasonable choice since the Microsoft Company doesn’t provide any security updates for this version anymore.
The operator systems which still are supported and containing updates are listed below:
Windows server 2008, 2008R2, 2012, 2012R2

For making a complex password you can also use password generator websites which provide you password making services.
