6.12. Security Best Practices

Since the NetBackup software runs in a networked environment, it is susceptible to vulnerabilities such as denial of service attacks. To prevent these situations from happening, the following best practices are recommended by Veritas, which is now Symantec:

  • Allow administrative access to privileged users only

  • Allow remote access only from trusted servers

  • Apply the latest patches

  • Install NetBackup behind a firewall

  • Ensure virus protection is running on the servers

  • Monitor network traffic for malicious activity

  • Block external access to the default ports used by NetBackup

  • NetBackup server and clients should face towards the internal network
