Linux Services

Linux Security

Security is a primary focus of everything that we do. We are constantly asking the question, “How can this be more secure?” It can be a challenge to balance security with usability—and this is where we excel. We deploy new systems and secure existing systems by adhering to the principles of least privilege, isolation, default-deny/explicit-allow and separating data from execution in addition to implementing industry security best practices.

Server Monitoring

Availability Monitoring

The 24/7 monitoring service addresses response to issues inside the server. We monitor a number of system performance metrics like CPU, disk, and memory in addition to website response and availability. With this service, we respond if any of these metrics need attention. We will keep your virtual machine online independent of this service because of the redundancy discussed above, but without this service, we are unable to monitor application-specific details to respond quickly when there is an issue specific to your deployment. This service also includes the weekly graphs that we send you showing service availability and any warnings that happened over the past week.

Included each month is one hour of emergency response toward fixing service failures that we monitor and maintain (emergency-response hours are per-server, non-cumulative, and do not roll over to the next month). Additional time for troubleshooting or fixing server issues is billed at our standard or emergency rates as appropriate.

Security Monitoring

Security monitoring is like having a security review all year long. Our review process has been bundled into a monitoring service that will alert us to suspicious activity and security misconfigurations. In addition, we review and store your server’s system logs offsite so an attacker cannot modify logs and hide their path.

Virtualization Consolidation

We can help plan the right solution for you whether you are moving into your own private virtual infrastructure, or seeking to outsource the hosting of your infrastructure.
