Recently we moved from our old provider to the ultra secured hosting environment at Firehost.com. Besides the fact we were growing so fast that our old iron could not keep up, we specifically chose our new provider for their reputation for security. They secure us, we secure you.. it’s like our own private party inside Fort Knox.
All servers that host websites are subject to being pummeled by malicious bots looking for vulnerabilities. The trick is to stay ahead of the malicious attempts. FireHost specializes in secure environments. We like to think that we are very proactive in regards to your security and will go above and beyond to ensure the health of your site. Thanks to our growth and the fine people of FireHost we were able to extend the best secure servers on the market today to our clients.
This graph below was taken from our weekly security report (you know how the President gets a daily security briefing by his Generals and the CIA, it’s kinda like that) and illustrates the events logged and blocked by just 1 (of the many) security layers on just 1 network node, in just 1 day. Over 30,000 nefarious events stopped before they even started.
Just think about if your site is not protected like ours, and then do something about it. Of course we recommend you give us a try, but you may also read up on best practices below. And for all that is holy, use a strong password. It all starts with a password.
