As a provider of VMware Zimbra Premium Services for clients around the globe MrMail.com small businesses easy access to an integrated suite of communication, Internet applications and hosting services. However during a recent interview with a prospective client, the issue of how could the company best secure their company's Internet website on a cloud hosting platform was raised. The confusion surrounding this issue is not limited to small businesses; but security solutions for these companies are not the same as their larger counterparts. As a public service, MrMail.com has decided to launch a Cloud Hosting Security Education Series by subscription to provide the facts on how companies can protect their Internet assets.
“All too often businesses will launch a website with the mistaken impression that their hosting company provides them with all of the security that is required. Unfortunately while the server is secured, the applications and database systems that a company may use is under their control and the responsibility to secure these applications rests with them as well,” stated Oliver Bross, CEO of MrMail.com. “As a provider of cloud hosting services, we want small business owners to have the facts about the advantages of taking a proactive approach to the security of their Internet properties along with the tools to prevent disaster rather than react to the impact of the all too real threat of a malicious attack on their website or database.”
The information in the bi-monthly series will focus on four major areas; communications, applications, databases and hosting servers providing a comprehensive overview of the vulnerability of those most commonly used by small businesses. In addition to the basic overview of features that represent security threats to the Internet presence for a company, the differences between how security is addressed in traditional hosting and cloud hosting will be reviewed. The Cloud Hosting Security Education Series will provide practical steps and measures that can be taken to secure Email Clients, Content Management Systems which run on PHP, ASP.net, Ruby on Rails, ColdFusion and Perl including WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Sitefinity and Kentico, the SQL and MySql database systems, VMware Linux and Windows servers.
The goal of the series is to make business owners aware of the means at their disposal through preventive measures and monitoring services for cloud server and traditional hosting. There is no charge for registration. The subscription forms for the bi-weekly Cloud Hosting Security Education Series which opens on November 25, 2012 will be available on the MrMail.com website beginning November 15th.
