Take advantage of three primary levels of protection-physical, network and server level security. A dedicated team of security engineers manages these, along with the Parsv Update process.
Physical Security: The Parsv data centers were designed with security in mind. From the main entrance to the receiving docks, security and reliability are the primary focus of the building design.
Network Security: Parsv's network security features a secure back-end administration network, hardened router configurations, a fully switched network and comprehensive access policies.
Server Security: The key to Parsv server security is a proprietary, hardened server build process. Risk-prone services are locked down to minimize the chance of exploits.
Parsv Smart Update: Security threats are evaluated for level of risk, and then an action plan is created based upon the nature of the threat and the degree of exposure to Parsv clients. Our dedicated team of security experts then sends out a security alert to effected clients. They architect and test a solution before deploying patches to your operating system.
Our stringent security standards are confirmed by a SAS 70 Type I and II certification. Parsv also completed a rigorous and well documented logical and physical security regimen to achieve TruSecure certification. The successful results of these demanding tests verify the effectiveness of our security controls and Parsv Services.
Security Solutions: Do not become another statistic. Servers are hacked everyday by people using kits specifically designed to compromise know exploits. With just a few additional security items, you can harden your server to stop most of these attacks. Through pro-active monitoring, firewall protection, intrusion detection and other system, you can be assured that your server is secured. No system is 100% hacker proof, but with the items below, you will not fall victim to script kiddies, worms and other common exploits.
Secure Start: Our Secure Start package is designed for new server owners. This provides a one time updated and security overhaul of your system. Other items such as name server setup, add-on software, server backup, and other services can be added at discounted prices. We provide a firewall, monitoring, services check and more.
