Security services

Secure your IT infrastructure with our full-stack security solutions

Expert security solutions

We understand that security is the foundation of every successful business. That’s why our experts provide continuous protection for your website or application with our range of security services.

We offer a multi-layered approach to security that is designed to protect your business against attacks, threats and vulnerabilities, meet compliance requirements and minimise downtime from potential breaches, so you can run your business with greater confidence.


Our full-stack security suite

Our security services suite is designed to go beyond industry standards and maintain the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your data.

Data encryption

Data is a critical asset, and if it is not properly managed and secured, it becomes a liability. The purpose of encryption is to protect sensitive data and deter malicious or negligent parties from accessing it. We offer database and file encryption with all of our solutions, putting the security of your critical data front of mind at all times.

DDoS defence

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks have risen dramatically over the past few years. Our DDoS Defence System solution is based on detection, diversion, verification and forwarding to ensure total protection against malicious attacks up to 100Gbps, keeping your business online and functional.

A managed firewall service places a layer of security between your organisation and the internet. All 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. As standard, our experts completely lockdown firewalls and open up permissions on request.

SSL certificates

A secure hosting solution with an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate ensures that your website is secured, and encrypts all sensitive information such as usernames and passwords. Our experts can fully manage your SSL certificates for you from purchase to installation, maintenance and renewal, saving you time and effort.

Virtual private network

A VPN encrypts all traffic between two internet points, providing secure communication channels for individual users, user groups, contractors, vendors and remote offices. Our Managed VPN also aids in providing a high level of data integrity and protects key corporate information assets.

Intrusion prevention system (IPS)

Our Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) continuously monitors your network, looking for possible malicious incidents and takes preventative action, such as configuring firewalls and closing access points to prevent further attacks. IPS services from Hyve can be seamlessly integrated into enterprise security information management processes, with no effect on traffic speeds or the business.

Intrusion detection system (IDS)

Our primary focus is ensuring that our customer’s solutions are live and accessible 24/7. Unlike an IPS, an IDS does not block traffic, it simply monitors the network in real-time with continuous vulnerability discovery. Our trained IDS experts monitor exactly what is happening on your infrastructure, allowing you to make better decisions about risk without limiting system access.

Malware protection

Running separate applications for viruses, hackers, adware, and spyware can slow your PC, making them difficult to manage. We’ve solved that with our comprehensive ESET NOD32 protection; a single engine that works as a unified anti-threat system to protect your servers against a broad spectrum of malware.


We provide bespoke security solutions designed around your needs. We have vast experience with an array of AntiVirus products, including ESET’s solution, which offers fast scanning and the highest rate of proactive detection. Whatever your AntiVirus needs, our team of technical engineers will build a custom solution to fit your exact requirements, offering full support and management on all of our security services.

Penetration testing

Penetration testing helps to protect websites and web applications against attacks from hackers and cybercriminals. Our experts will analyse your website with scanning software to identify possible security holes and vulnerabilities, before creating a detailed report that developers can use to repair any problems.

Vulnerability scanning

We provide industry-leading security expertise to identify vulnerabilities and implement corrections. Our team of technical engineers scan your websites and web applications to look for OWASP security vulnerabilities, such as Cross-site scripting, SQL Injection, Broken Authentication and more.

Learn more

Two factor authentication

We utilise two-factor authentication as standard to ensure an extra layer of security. Passwords are under constant risk of compromise from various techniques such as brute force, spyware, viruses or social engineering. Requiring a second factor of authentication significantly increases your system security with access granted only upon successful authentication of both factors.

Web application firewall

A WAF protects applications from a range of attacks such as SQL injections and cross-site scripting, specifically OWASP key threats. These types of attacks can occur when there are vulnerabilities in the code or if systems are not regularly patched and kept up to date.

Learn more

Patch management

We utilise a secure, cross-platform patch discovery and distribution utility that provides an enterprise-wide patch, software, data and task deployment. This essential security tool automatically detects patch-related security vulnerabilities on all machines within a network and provides a fast and efficient method to correct them immediately across all platforms and enterprise boundaries.

Certifications & accreditations

When you are creating a shortlist of companies for your next cloud hosting project, it’s important to look into their compliance and accreditations.

Hyve has worked diligently to secure externally audited certifications in ISO 27001(Information Security), ISO 27017 (Cloud Security) and ISO9001 (Management systems). We have also been awarded PCI-DSS compliance, are Cyber Essentials Plus certified and are part of the government G-Cloud 13 framework, as well as a Crown Commercial supplier.

As a hosting provider that hosts some of the UK’s critical infrastructure, we comply fully with the NIS Regulation 2018, which was formulated by the NCSC (part of GCHQ) to boost the overall level of security (both cyber and physical) of network and digital information systems.
