Network Security

Network security vulnerabilities pose multi-billion dollar threats to corporations., in partnership with Rackspace Managed Hosting, protects you with the industry's most potent security tools and techniques that are designed, built, and maintained specifically for enterprise-class web operations.


Security starts at the data center and includes physical 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.


The network is 100% Cisco Powered, built on hardened routers and audited by Cisco. This ensures maximum-security protection at every level. The network incorporates a Rackspace-patented Intrusion Detection System to protect against external threats.

Firewalls are managed by security specialists and deployed in a "private IP" space, which isolates the network from outside threats. Network security features also include multi-level privileges, OS lockdowns, centralized authentication, and device change logs.


The OS is loaded, hardened, and aggressively patched to ensure proper security. By maintaining on-site hardware inventories, laboratories, and automated deployment systems, in addition to close relationships with key hardware vendors, Rackspace is able to guarantee hardware availability and smooth scaling.


Rackspace monitors the availability of hardware and network services 24 hours a day. engineers monitor the operation of the OS, critical applications, and other data points via a centralized monitoring environment. engineers are immediately alerted to potential problems and have tools at their disposal to diagnose problems on individual servers in real time.

Security Patching

By constantly updating security systems, Rackspace ensures optimum protection for our customers. They monitor and address emerging threats, and quickly process and apply new security patches.

Threat Analysis
