Why security is always the best policy 

Security first
At Hyve, security is our top priority. We are committed to providing the hi
ghest levels of security and compliance across every area of the business – it’s what sets us apart from many of our competitors. 

Not only do we dedicate ourselves to gaining the best security certifications and accreditations in the industry, but we also have an extensive range of security services that help our customers to stay secure. Some companies, especially those in the financial and healthcare sector, have a responsibility to ensure the security and safety of customer information and sensitive data.

Certifications & accreditations
We are G-Cloud 11 suppliers, PCI DSS compliant, ISO 27001, ISO 9001 and ISO27017 certified, and part of the Cloud Security Alliance STAR program.

We also have Cyber Essentials and the NIS Directive to add to our expanding list of security accreditations. Cyber Essentials is a certification that reassures customers that Hyve has a secure infrastructure and that we are proactively working to protect customers against any cybersecurity threats.  

Information sharing
As a hosting platform for some of the UK’s essential infrastructure, Hyve is adhering to the new NIS (Network and Information Security) Directive. This directive has been put in place by the NCSC (part of GCHQ) to ensure critical infrastructure within the UK is prepared against cyber-attacks from any foreign powers or groups. 

We are also members of CiSP – the cyber-security information sharing partnership. Members benefit from early warnings of cyber threats, as well as having the ability to learn from the experiences, mistakes and success of other users, and to seek advice where necessary. This information gives us an improved ability to protect our company networks, our customers’ infrastructures and ensure that they are made aware (where appropriate) of the latest threats and attacks that are happening in the online world.

Security services
With Hyve’s range of security products and services, we provide continuous protection for customers’ websites and applications. We offer a multi-layered approach to security that is designed to protect their business against attacks. 

We offer a range of services including: firewalls, web application firewalls (WAF), data encryption, VPNs, SSL certificates, intrusion detection systems, intrusion prevention systems, DDoS defence, vulnerability scanning and penetration testing.

“Security is the cornerstone of every business operation and project carried out at Hyve. We pride ourselves in providing the highest standards of security and compliance in our UK and global operations” - Graham Marcroft, Compliance Officer at Hyve Managed Hosting.

Cybersecurity
When it comes to online security and data protection in the workplace, human errors are often considered to be the biggest threat and ‘weakest link’. Without appropriate training and education, people can fall victim to cyber attacks.

We have created a culture of cybersecurity in the business as well as imparting this knowledge onto our customers. All of our staff receive full cybersecurity training and continuous testing to ensure that security is fundamental to everything that we do.
