Security - Perimeter Firewall to Web Application Firewall (WAF)

Security is at the front of everyone's mind these days. At Hostek we too place a great deal of focus on Security.



There are multiple layers that go into a strong security defense. At our perimeter, we invoke redundant firewalls that provides for intrusion prevention and detection. The firewall rules provided by a leading 3rd party are updated hourly.

By default, in addition to the perimeter firewall deep packet inspection, we also block access to all non-common ports.

If you have an application that needs access to a non common port, no problem. Just let us know and we can move your server behind a more relaxed firewall that still does the deep packet inspection (IPS/IDS) but allows you to manage which ports to have open or closed at the server level.

Additionally, if you need, we can provide your own firewall to manage your ports, NAT rules, etc. so that all your servers can be managed behind a single firewall.

Compliance Seals



Our security doesn't stop there. By utilizing common WAFs (Web Application Firewalls), an extra layer of security for your application is provided.

Note that keeping your application up-to-date is one of the most important pieces of the Security layer.
