“We spend a good deal of time with our customers understanding their existing infrastructure, what their security needs are, to make sure they are actually adopting best operational practices.”
As a hosting provider, managing security is a multi-faceted task, where a provider needs to protect its own infrastructure against the global internet, but also provide its customers with an open – and – secure Internet. You are dependent on your provider for connectivity, so it’s important that they spend time understanding your current infrastructure security and your needs. Is your provider working with you to ensure that your enterprise is implementing security best practices to keep your enterprise free from security breaches? Does your hosting provider review your operational practices and security standards regularly to ensure that the procedures you have in place are still in line with your operations?
Important things your provider should be talking to you about are:
Denial of service mitigation
IDS and IPS and Firewall
Service public facing ports
