As more and more partners are choosing CT Wholesale to host their customers website via our UK based web hosting platform, we wanted to provide additional assurance to our partners that the most stringent of security measures are in place to protect their websites against malicious attacks.
Our web hosting platform now has Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDP) as standard using SNORT, a recently acquired Cisco Brand.
SNORT is a database of known exploits and vulnerabilities in web packages that is compiled into a ruleset, and works in a similar way to anti-virus packages. Any traffic that is seen to be trying to exploit a vulnerability is automatically dropped.
Richard Thompson, Sales Director remarks, ‘CT Wholesale is one is a very few companies that includes IDP as standard with web hosting packages. Since we have integrated SNORT we have seen a significant reduction in attacks reaching our web servers. Protecting and ensuring partners customers websites are running smoothly and quickly is critical to the success of their business. As a trusted web hosting provider we offer customers daily site checks across multiple operating systems and devices to ensure any problems can be resolved quickly. Now, with the added protection of SNORT , we can offer our partners additional peace of mind.’
