As hybrid cloud continues to gain prominence as an IT Infrastructure solution, providers of Managed Hybrid Cloud Hosting (MHCH) are becoming critical in helping companies run their workloads in a secure and dynamic environment. Hostway has been focused on providing enterprises with a wide variety of managed hosting, and managed cloud services and capabilities, with a special focus on MHCH. As a result, we were recently listed as one of the top MCHC vendors in the 2018 Gartner Market Guide for Managed Hybrid Cloud Hosting.
This listing is a result of Hostway's strong ability to provide:

Putting Our Abilities to the Test
These capabilities allow us to efficiently design, build, and operate PCI-, FERPA-, and HIPAA-compliant infrastructures that can securely store highly-sensitive data for our global enterprise customers, including industry leaders like Samsung. Last year, the electronics giant asked Hostway to help secure their SmartTV application. Our team executed a customized approach that enabled Samsung to offer the first smart television app to be PCI compliant on a global scale. As the cloud market evolves, Hostway will continue to offer solutions like these that are built to meet the individualized needs of each customer, and we look forward to meeting Gartner’s high standards in the process.

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). Taking the time to learn about cybersecurity, and how you can protect yourself and your business should be of the utmost importance. It’s an especially important time as breaches and leaks continue to grow and are a major part of our online lifestyle. It doesn’t matter how large, small, or popular a company is, it seems like data breaches and hackers are becoming a part of our daily lives. But there are ways to mitigate security risks.
Department of Homeland Security“With the increase of data being stored online and the recent large-scale compromises of personal information, it's more important than ever to focus on efforts to secure data. Cyber Security Awareness Month is a great way to get more people thinking about how they secure and protect the data they are entrusted with,” says Hostway's Director, Security Services, Peter Marsh.
NCSAM is presented by the Department of Homeland Security and promotes a variety of ways to decrease the likelihood of being hacked through increased awareness and cybersecurity. America isn’t the only country using October to buckle down on safety online. Canada’s Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness said, “[threats] can rob you of your money and identity and do serious harm to infrastructure, economy, and national security.” The desire to protect data and private information is felt worldwide.

5 Ways to Increase Your Cyber Security

“Staying ahead of hackers, DDoS attacks, internet hijacking, and other cyber-attacks may not be possible for everyone, but there are steps anyone can take to lessen your chances of being hit,” says Marsh.

  1. The more characters, numbers, and letter mixtures there are in a password, the more secure it is. It’s time to stop toying with security with obvious passwords like “password.”
  2. Sharing public networks may be easy hunting for hackers. Make sure to alter device settings to ensure files aren’t open to anyone poking around.
  3. Remember that Myspace account? It’s time to double check your personal data from sites you may have forgotten about. Shut them down, remove credit card details, or just delete.
  4. Weakness in your online security may be because of outdated security patches. Installing operating systems should help combat breaches.
  5. Seems instinctual but backing up your data, especially by using an encrypted backup service like managed cloud hosting, makes it even more difficult for hackers to access your data.
