Which File Transfer Servers create unnecessary exposure?
File Transfer Servers are often configured to allow anonymous access. Some variants even default to allowing it. Anonymous access enables users (and hackers) to access the server without providing proper logon credentials.
Servers allowing Anonymous Login are targets for hackers distributing pirated video and music. Intrusion attempts almost always include an attempt to log on anonymously to File Transfer Servers.
Sentry Analytics’ user ID view provides a quick answer whether and how much anonymous logins actually are happening.
