Security starts at the data center and includes traditional locks,
access controls and biometric surveillance systems. Robust fire
suppression, HVAC, power feeds, hot-swappable servers and routers
are available in the event of an outage. Background checks and certifications
ensure the integrity of all personnel.
Our 100% Cisco Powered Network, built on hardened routers and audited
by Cisco, ensure maximum security protection. Our network incorporates
a patented Intrusion Detection System to protect against external
We employ both Cisco dedicated hardware Firewalls and software firewalls.
Firewalls are managed by security specialists and deployed in a
'private IP' space, while customer servers and routers are segregated
in Virtual Local Area Networks (VLAN). Network security features
also include multi-level privileges, OS lockdowns, centralized authentication
and device change logs.
Our security regimen also addresses the inherent vulnerabilities
of applications, including enterprise databases, Microsoft IIS,
Apache, Linux, mail services, FTP servers, DNS and streaming media.
We implement firewalls and deactivate non-essential features to
further protect applications.
By constantly updating our security systems, we ensure optimum protection
for our customers. We monitor and address emerging threats, and
quickly process and apply new security patches.
Rackspace employs advanced technologies to identify and address
security weaknesses in Web-oriented servers, applications and activities.
We constantly examine all firewalls, load-balancers, SSL accelerators
and switches, as well as external developments, for any potential
