Hi guys,

The company that I work for has already a website hosted in a web server (Windows 2003 standard ) located in DMZ and intranet hosted on a different server (windows 2003 standard) located internally. There will be more modifications on the intranet site as we are using Drupel and also it will be hosted in the new server. Later on we will also migrate the webserver to a new server. The new servers will be in a virtual environment (VMware 5).

I want to know different ways of securing intranet and our company website. Can I suggest to have 2 different servers as how its hosted currently?

Intranet - local to the network (internal network)
Company Website - In the DMZ

Any suggestions is much appreciated

You should be ok with having both servers on the same VM.

One thing you need to make sure of, is that each site is binded to its own IP address (intranet on 10.1.1.2 and corporate on 10.1.1.3 for example).

That will give you all you need to apply different security policies for both sites.

If you're running that new server on linux you could jail the 2 environments to completely isolate them from everything else, make sure you use different databases, database credentials, service accounts for each site.
