One of Steve Jobs’ last public appearances was the 2011 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference during which Apple unveiled its iCloud content storage platform. Jobs went out of his way to repeatedly stress that “the Cloud” was, in fact, a network of bricks-and-mortar buildings containing physical servers — servers that, Jobs implied, would be protected in a very real, powerful, and non-virtualized way.
The protection Jobs wanted the world to know about is fairly typical for high-quality, business-grade web hosts. At ServInt’s datacenters, this “last few hundred feet” of protection is ruled over by heavily armed security guards, biometric locks on three-inch-thick steel doors, and security cameras covering every conceivable angle of every hallway, office and utility closet. Quite literally, it would be easier — much easier — to rob a bank than to steal data from ServInt by breaking into one of our datacenters.
If you’re looking for true, 360-degree security for your data, you can safely stop worrying about the ServInt physical infrastructure on which it’s housed. At the software layers, we also provide extensive “hardening” of your server to protect it against known and emerging exploits. Of course, the most powerful security toolset is in your hands: keeping your passwords secure and making sure all your software is up to date. Working together, we can keep your data as safe as possible.
