Protecting your data

We have world-class data protection mechanisms in place. Our data centres are equipped with computer-controlled climate control and fire suppression systems that can extinguish any fire in seconds. Trained security personnel and proximity cards control and limit access to the data centres 24/7. All data is also backed up, should it be needed for auditing purposes.

Servers

We offer top-of-the-range rack-mounted HP NetServer and Dell PowerEdge servers, with full disk redundancy provided by RAID SCSI drive systems. Our primary operating systems are Windows 2000 and Linux and we will advise on the most appropriate option depending on your business needs.

Scripting

We offer a range of scripting languages that allows for dynamic content on your website, including JAVA, ASP, PHP and Perl. Our expert consultants will advise you on the best option for you company and match it to your business needs.

Website Features

As a rule we do not limit your disk space or bandwidth but will work closely with you to monitor site traffic and increase allocated disk space and bandwidth as your site grows. We also provide secure servers so you can accept information via your website with confidence, enabling high-speed secure ecommerce on your site.

Website Maintenance

We have a range of options for updating the content on your website including FTP, WEBDAV and Microsoft Front Page Server Extension (for intranets). We also offer the flexibility of both semi-production and production environments, depending on your requirements.

Website Statistics

As standard we offer a full range of website statistics for free to all our clients, allowing you to track the number of visitors to your site, as well as get a better insight of the kind of visitors your site attracts.

Security

We have top-class security that includes firewalls that limit access to only necessary protocols and keep a log of all rejected attempts to access the site improperly. Multiple authentication methods provide an additional layer of security and include Windows and LDAP authentication. Data security is further ensured by the encryption of information sent between client and destination server, using SSL encryption through commercial as well as open-source digital certificates.

Support and Backup

We offer 24/7 support through a dedicated technical support contact, which means you'll never have to stay on hold for a call-centre agent. Daily backups of key database components ensure that you are protected against disk failure, and we keep archived disk backups both on- and off-site.

Email service

We can scale our solution to provide any level of email functionality based on SMTP, POP, IMAP. Some of our solutions include webmail, spam filtering, virus scanning, instant messaging, list servers, auto-responders and SMS email alerts.
