Security is foundational to ensuring an effective, reliable solution and plays a key role in the design of our SecureCloud platform. An extensive suite of premium security features is available to protect your valuable company data.
IPS (Intrusion Prevention System)
Hyve IPS blocks malicious, harmful or unwanted network activity. Performed in real time, the inspection ensures that good network traffic is accepted without noticeable delay. IPS offers protection from attacks such as SQL injection and cross site scripting.
DDS (DDoS Defence System)
Hyve DDS blocks floods and large numbers of unwanted connections. Performed in real time, the inspection has no affect on performance.
Hardware Cisco Firewalls
Hardware Cisco firewalls provide enhanced security compared to software firewalls. All firewalls are fully managed by our expert network team.
All client networks are segregated by VLAN preventing unauthorised client-to-client server access.
VPN (Virtual Private Network)
VPNs provide an additional layer of security by enforcing administration via an encrypted connection. Firewall ports are closed providing protection from hackers. VPNs can be configured between our data centre and your office or PC.
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)
SSL certificates protect your customers from hackers and identity thieves by ensuring that all data is encrypted.
Effective Anti-Virus Protection
Our fast and effective anti-virus and malware protection provides unparalleled protection without increasing IT management or impacting on system performance.
Our Cloud platform adheres to the data protection act, meets all requirements for HIPAA & FIPS compliance and will passes PCI scans.
