Choosing a hosting partner that puts security first is crucial to your business. With data security at the heart of Hyve’s mission, we understand that it is essential for your data and your client’s data to remain safe. First-class protection is accomplished through two primary methods – physical security, and server security.
A dedicated server solution with Hyve guarantees that your physical hardware is protected in a controlled data centre – removing the cost and increased security risks of maintaining equipment in your own office space or facility.
Hyve’s strategic data centre partner, Equinix, guarantees all locations are Tier 3 enhanced and are ISO 27001:2013 certified. With stringent physical security measures in place, such as 24/7 CCTV, biometric scanners, card readers, video monitors, and mantraps to prevent unauthorized access, our data centres are incredibly secure.
Choosing a single-tenant architecture lends itself to businesses that may need to meet strict security regulations or compliance requirements. Dedicated servers are well-suited to specialised sectors, such as finance or government, as they are given full control over the resources, and do not have to share with anyone else.
Dedicated server hosting gives you the autonomy to decide what is, or isn’t allowed on your servers. By isolating your data from other users and creating a private environment, you are able to reduce general performance issues and limit the opportunity for malicious behaviour.
At Hyve, we acknowledge the increasing threats that malicious hackers pose – and we act accordingly. Our security suite is designed to progressively weaken an attack, with the following deterrents.
DDoS Defence System
A Dedicated Denial of Service (DDoS) attack involves overloading a website with web traffic from multiple source IPs, leading to downtime, and potential financial loss. As security is the backbone of Hyve, we also include 1GB DDoS protection with every solution, at no additional cost – a service that many hosting providers will charge for.
Our leading DDoS defence system is used to detect and divert harmful DDoS attacks. This specialist device identifies floods and large numbers of connections by blocking them. The system can also deal with new threats as opposed to just known ones.
Firewalls are network security devices that prevent unauthorised access to your network by monitoring incoming and outgoing traffic. The firewalls decide which traffic to block or allow based on a set of rules, placing a layer of security between your organization and the internet. Inbound data traffic flows to a firewall, which filters traffic based on your specified requirements, detecting and deflecting unwanted attempts to penetrate your server security. Hyve can provide either hardware or software-based firewalls, or a combination of both.
Virtual Private Network
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a connection method used to add security to both public and private networks, such as WiFi Hotspots and the Internet. Mostly used by corporations to protect sensitive data, the VPN encrypts all traffic between two internet points, providing secure communication channels for individual users, user groups, contractors, vendors and remote offices.
A Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate provides authentication for a website and provides an encrypted connection between a web server and a browser. Our SSL certificates ensure that your website is secured, and encrypts all sensitive information such as usernames and passwords. For superior security, SSLs are vital for all websites, but in particular, sites that take card payment information.
Hyve is proud to offer 24/7 Extra-Mile support, alongside monitoring, scanning and vulnerability testing to ensure superior security for your managed dedicated server solution.
