Network security and the security of your serverare MaximumASP's top priorities.
Our security team is constantly monitoring the entire network for unusual or suspicious
behavior so that when it is detected we can address the issue before our network
or your server is affected. We perform weekly vulnerability scans using the best tools and practices available to
secure and protect your servers.
The MaximumASP network was designed to be a secure network without giving up the
reliability, redundancy or speed your systems require. MaximumASP also offers custom
security solutions that can be designed for your specific needs. Private Firewalls,
Virtual Private Networks and Dedicated Networks are all available as upgrade options
to our standard services.
Intrusion Prevention Systems
Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) are devices used to protect the internal network
from all forms of attacks. They watch all network data to detect and block exploits,
attacks, reconnaissance attempts and other unwanted traffic. These devices dig deep
into the network packets to ensure no unwanted traffic is making its way from the
Internet to your servers.
Enterprise and Private Firewalls
Our edge layer firewalls are what protect our internal network from the public internet.
At this layer the firewalls are statefully watching all packets coming into and
out of our network. We use these firewalls to block based on source/destination
IP address or source/destination ports. These firewalls can also be used to protect
against some Layer 7 (application layer) attacks and denial of service attacks.
Private firewalls are also available for servers that needs added security or needs to be physically
separated from the internal network. With a private firewall we can customize your
level of security and help you define a security policy for your server. This option
also gives you the ability to use a virtual private network (VPN) to access your
servers, which keeps all traffic between you and your servers safe with today's
strongest encryption technology. More »
Most hosting providers charge an additional fee for a managed enterprise-level anti-virus
solution, if they offer one at all. Today more than ever, this feature is so critical
that MaximumASP includes fully managed anti-virus protection on every server at no additional cost.
