Please feel free to contact us for more information.
Our comprehensive Data Guard service means our customers can depend on us to keep their site secure, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We offer a range of online security features as part of our web hosting service, including Malware Detection, Multi-Factor Authentication and Multi-Layer Encryption.
At Catalyst2, we have ISO 27001 Certification which is essential for protecting your company’s vital assets including employee details, customer information and other private information which needs protecting.
We have an established Firewall system that can monitor and control outgoing and incoming network traffic and block unauthorised access to your network. Our Firewall forms a barrier between unknown networks and your private network, using a set of security rules to identify and block any potential threats.
Our web application firewall filters, monitors and blocks traffic to prevent attacks that might exploit vulnerabilities. It constantly monitors HTTP traffic to provide real-time protection from common attacks.
Our brute force blocking software is designed to prevent wide-scale attacks on your system by locking out accounts that have repeatedly used incorrect passwords.
Malware is a type of software that is designed to do damage to a computer, network or server and it can be hugely damaging to your online business. Our reliable malware detection service is the best way to protect your site from potential threats, and it includes proactive monitoring, analysis, detection and take down of malware sites.
All of our users have access to automatic virus detection software as part of our Data Guard service. Our automatic virus scanning software can identify and remove any computer viruses that might gain access to your system.
At Catalyst2, we use multi-layer encryption to make your data even more secure. This means we encrypt messages which have already been encrypted so they are harder to decipher by potential attackers.
A Virtual Private Network or VPN establishes a secure connection between you and the internet by creating a private network from a public internet connection. A VPN gives you and your staff online anonymity, privacy and extra security too.
All of our sites come with an SSL certificate and this lets your customer’s web browser know that your site is safe to visit. SSL certificates are now an essential way to secure your site traffic and make sure your customers are confident using your website.
Our multi-factor authentication technology is a great way to keep your site extra secure. It means users need to provide two or more pieces of evidence that they are who they say they are before gaining access to the site. This could be the answer to a question only they know, or a piece of private information like a time-limited code sent to another email address. This stops unknown users from gaining access to your site in order to steal valuable data.
At Catalyst2, we offer offsite backup services as standard with our Data Guard security solution. Our fully-managed secure offsite backup service ensures reliable and consistent backups are available whenever you need them.
We utilise separate VLANs to keep network applications separate even if they are connected to the same physical network. This enhances security and keeps your data protected from potential threats.
DDoS or Distributed Denial of Service attacks occur when hackers hijack an unprotected computer and install malware to overwhelm a server and prevent legitimate users from accessing networks and services. Our DDoS Protection service includes traffic monitoring and real-time mitigation of network attacks so your website is secure.
We all know how important strong passwords are, but countless organisations have been hacked when staff use simple passwords that are easy to guess, allowing hackers access to the system. All of the sites we host have access to our strong password policy, so users need to create reliable, secure passwords.
Our vulnerability scanning software is designed to assess networks, applications and computers for any potential security issues. We take a proactive approach to data security, identifying and eliminating gaps in security before they are breached.
At Catalyst2, the security of your website and private information is paramount, which is why we offer such comprehensive online security options as part of our web hosting service. If you’re looking for a web hosting company that takes your online security seriously, call us today on 0800 107 7979.
