RedShift Server Security System
   
 
Security measures are implemented proactively at RedShift, unlike other Web Hosting companies where these measures are reactive. We have implemented in-house measures that ensure security of all our servers.
 
   
  The Security Measures are undertaken at two different levels  
   
  Data Center Level  
   
 
The data center is physically isolated from everyone but level three technicians. Public access is strictly forbidden. Access to the data center floors is restricted to those holding military-grade pass cards. To guard against line failure or intrusion, the data center is staffed 24 hours a day and monitored by a comprehensive security system incorporating biometric hand-scanning for strict access control. There is 24 hour video surveillance with as many as 8-10 cameras in a single room to monitor every activity.
 
   
  Server Level  
   
 
RedShift runs periodic security checks on the servers and generates reports with the following details using third party tools.
 
 
•
Services running on the server and versions of software used.  
 
•
Up-to-date security vulnerability database. Over 1000 security checks are performed.
 
 
•
Reports which service is vulnerable and what action has to be taken with all the references to advisories from CVE, Bugtraq, CERT and other independent companies and organizations.
 
   
 
Apart from the above, there are other security measures taken on each server
 
 
•
Detection of any issues with the network, with risk levels of any problems detected (from Low to Very High).
 
 
•
Blocking of all the unwanted ports to prevent unauthorized intrusion by exploiting the vulnerable ports.
 
 
•
Changing the ports of services which are vulnerable to hack attempts and DoS attacks to some other unused ports. For example, the port of MS SQL 2000 port is changed from the default from 1433 to 1422.
 
 
•
Realtime Antivirus scanning for viruses as well as scheduled scans to prevent viruses from entering the server.
 
 
•
Realtime Email Antivirus scanning to prevent viruses from entering the Users’ inbox.
 
 
•
Setting security policies in the servers according to the RFCs specified by the various advisories.
 
 
•
Access to the servers limited to the Server Administrator.  
 
•
Daily incremental Backup of Data and Databases to prevent the loss of data in event of a server failure.
