Southern Tier Website Hosting Web Site Security


Southern Tier Website Hosting maintains a very high level of security on our web servers.  We are vigilant in applying the latest in Microsoft security patches as soon as they are released.  Some of the software we use and methodologies we follow are outlined below.


Weekly and Monthly Off-Site Web Site Backup

You'll not find a better web site backup plan in the industry!  Your valuable web site files are backed up weekly to a single ZIP file, and finally monthly and stored off-site on recordable DVD.  Any database files you use are included in the backup of course.  Restoration of backed up files is free.  You can even request a complete backup file be emailed to you for your own safe keeping at any time - just ask.  Plans like this can cost hundreds of dollars per month with some hosts.  With EFX internet your comprehensive backup solution is included in your Managed Web Site Hosting package.

Symantec Virus Scanning

Virus scanning provided by Symantec's AntiVirus Corporate Edition to protect against malicious uploads and hacker attacks.  Server-based email scanning catches most virus infected email before they reache your Inbox.  Additionally, EFX internet WebMail is fully protected by AntiVirus as well.


 

Cisco Systems Routing & Switching

The use of industry leading Cisco Catalyst 12000 routers and switches insures network performance, scalability, manageability and high-availability so your site stays connected 24/7/365.  Most medium and large size corporations rely on Cisco enterprise network solutions to enhance performance and provide seamless service.
