Server Set Up
At Quals Direct we must ensure our servers are up to the task of hosting our ePortfolio system. We have a number of servers within our private, high performance eCloud system all geared up with the latest technology and security which host the various components involved in delivering our ePortfolio.
Our servers are protected by top of the range Cisco firewalls, which effectively prevent unwanted access to our systems and provide mitigation for common brute force attacks such as DDoS attacks. All our websites and services run over SSL 64 bit encryption, ensuring personal data is kept safe between our servers and the end users’ computers.
Back Up & Data
We have a top of the range back up system in place to ensure in the event of any unforeseen circumstances you can be rest assured your data is safe and the ePortfolio is still available.
All our data is stored on our eCloud Vault, offering a secure, state-of-the-art environment which is guaranteed to stay in the United Kingdom.
In the unlikely event of any problems, each of our servers are paired up with an identical server on our backup SAN with automated switching. If anything happens to one of our servers, within seconds this will be switched over to the other server while our technicians are able to quickly resolve the problems.
We have expert technicians at hand 24 hours a day who will constantly monitor our servers and are at hand should they be required for any assistance to the servers.
Monitoring & Reviewing Technology
We are constantly reviewing our servers, upgrading our systems and looking to implement the latest hardware and software to ensure our servers remain cutting edge and secure.
