Physical Security

While the N-able N-central system was designed with security in mind, many software-level protections can be overcome or circumvented through physical access to the system.

To ensure the security of the system, it is important to use best practices for physical security in addition to network security. The physical security of the N-able N-central server is the responsibility of the customer, however N-able promotes and advises customers to apply at least basic physical security precautions, which include the following:
