SQL Server security
I joined a production environment recently, and I’m the key person here. We have 2 servers: one production server and a replication server. Data from the application goes to the production server every second and that is replicated to the replication server. We fetch the data from replication server. There is no failover clustering or logshipping implemented here. Please suggest to me the best way to have data security, replication as well as security maintenance.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Data security will depend on making sure that all accounts have the minimum rights needed, and that there is no dynamic SQL. Application accounts should have no direct access to database tables.

Security maintenance should be fairly easy. If no changes are made once the system is secure there isn’t much to do but make sure that nothing changes.

Same goes for replication. Once it’s setup it is usually pretty much a set it and forget it system, unless you have a very complex topology with very slow LAN/WAN links.
