Safe and secure

Security is vital for any website. Letting the Good in and keeping the bad out

Security is a many-layered thing. And while most of the services and packages we have at SoftForge are designed to interact with you, security is one of those that we really do want to look after for you.

We use many different tools starting with the server and the managed services that websites are built upon. Hardware firewalls, software firewalls, storing off the web tree those things that ought to be and removing the Easter eggs and services that would give a hacker a helping hand.

If the last bit meant nothing to you that's fine we are happy to cover those areas for you, to advise and guide you through the rough seas that is security on the web and steer you to a safe port.

Site security

Server security

SoftForge is careful where it hosts its websites. This is where you do pay for what you get and although a cheaper solution may sound more attractive the old adage, "buy cheap buy twice" hits home.

Security is about protection your work, reputation and your customers. When put like that is this really something you wish to leave to an unmanaged discount solution?

Software security

Software security starts with picking the right applications to make your site. Building relationships with the application developers and turning that knowledge to sorting the secure well written from the rest.

Being aware of the extensions that are on any security or vulnerability lists and always remove any applications that are no longer needed. 

Human security

At SoftForge we get to know our customers and our customers know us. We have a clear set-out chain of actions with safeguards against social engineering attacks. So when we get an email saying that the owner of the site is on holiday and that they urgently need the IP changed, or the domain record update, we will do nothing until we have confirmed to our satisfaction that the instructions are coming from the person with the correct credentials
