The hardware Firewall provides robust, enterprise-class, integrated network security,
creating a strong multi-layered defensive service for dynamic network environments.
The hardware device works with a set of rules, filtering traffic coming through
the Internet into our systems. If an incoming packet of data is flagged up by the
filters as against the rules that have been set up, it will not be allowed through.
These devices add an additional layer of security to the servers, stopping potentially
malicious packets from ever reaching the network.
The data centre has been engineered with fully redundant connectivity, power and
HVAC to avoid any single point of failure, and is staffed 24 x 7 by highly trained
technical support personnel. And because the data centre is not open to the public,
only a handful of level-three technicians are allowed in close physical proximity
to the servers. Multiple levels of security are employed to ensure that only Data
Centre Operations Engineers are physically allowed near the routers, switches, and
ANTI - VIRUS
An anti-virus solution is one of the most critical, effective and affordable ways
to avoid infections from viruses, spyware, adware and potentially unwanted applications.
The managed Anti-Virus solution from Rackspace is an advanced technology powered
by Sophos that's fully managed by their experts, so our servers get the ultimate
level of protection.
