We are a small hosting company and have Windows servers only. For database solutions we have always offered mySQL for reasons of costs. Last week we were 'forced' to get MS-SQL for some clients. We know of MS-SQL, but never used it because of the high costs.
Now that we have it and knowing it was enterprise class we expected great things and we quickly became very disappointed with it.
1) Within a week of operation we had several hacking attempts. With mySQL we never had one attempt. We have to firewall the offending IPs to prevent further abuse.
2) There is no way to IP restrict an account, like the sa account where most hacking attempts were focused on. Why can you not have the sa account to be local access only!
How do other hosting companies deal with this because we obviously need the MS-SQL port open so clients can access their database.
