VIRTUS’ security is split in three key aspects:


Physical

We operate 6 layers of physical security with the ability for customers to tailor their solution within our data centres for enhanced levels, as required. From perimeter fencing, access control, CCTV external and internal, restricted pass code access, man and vehicle traps; VIRTUS guarantees the security needs of the most demanding customers.


Process

We are certified to BS27001 that evidences our processes and procedures. Every aspect of our security is tested regularly.


Digital

Through discussion with customers, VIRTUS has recognised the need for companies to have an easy access choice of DDoS mitigation services and has partnered with key digital security providers so that our customers systems are able to deal with attacks should they materialise.

Industry experts and analysts agree the security of your digital data and systems is becoming increasingly as important as the physical security of your IT deployments.

How DDoS works1

Gartner summarises the key challenges as follows:

  • Many organizations lack the technical expertise and the operational experience to respond effectively to DDoS attacks.
  • Business leaders and IT leaders often fail to communicate well during the critical early stages of a DDoS attack.
  • DDoS toolkits have made it possible for individuals with little technical knowledge to launch attacks.

Gartner’s recommendations include deploying a range of techniques that include the use of traffic scrubbing centres that ‘clean’ traffic when an attack is under way and to combine this with rapid response or proactive monitoring services for invocation.
