Cumulonimble. Data backup. Cloud to cloud.March 14, 2013
Even the most secure enterprise or data centre can be hacked or infected by a polymorphic malware attack, persistent and determined ‘black hat’ programmer or malicious staff member. So, file backup is of critical importance in all environments.
There could also be a recurrence of past worldwide infections, as polymorphic malware is now far more covert, complex and capable of continuous mutation.
With security as a major consideration, all Digital Tsunami dedicated servers have multiple layers of redundant security and data backup.
Firstly, the webservers are housed in a reputable data centre with extremely robust physical and electronic security systems.
Secondly, the servers are RAID arrays with multiple hard drives, load balancing and anti-virus software.
Thirdly, scheduled daily and weekly server backups are archived on duplicate servers and in offsite storage facilities.
Fourthly, all WordPress websites are managed with separate daily and weekly backups, also stored offsite and “in the cloud” for maximum security and redundancy.
All these precautionary measures enable rapid restoration of site content, immediately an incident is detected.
All client sites (on our servers or elsewhere), are dynamically monitored at two minute intervals. This ‘heartbeat monitoring‘ ensures that our technicians are notified rapidly if a domain is detected to be offline.
Online solutions are designed with a fundamental security measures, including: high-level passwords for all back-end and front-end users; device IP-specific logins for administrators; strict upload file type restrictions; integrated anti-virus software scans; and a CAPTCHA on all forms.
Digital Tsunami manages dedicated servers in the telco-grade, Global Switch data centre in Sydney, Australia and can configure your own dedicated server or co-locate in the continent of your target market, or on a content distribution network (CDN) for high-speed global data delivery.
We have provided assistance to companies with sites that have been hacked or defaced, domains which have been stolen, and even a community group which required a forensic audit to determine if a staff member had committed a criminal offence.
