About HedgeCo Websites Security

Our clients manage billions of dollars across the entire financial services sector.  There is no room for data integrity problems in their world, so they rely on us to provide the most secure hosting solution possible.  That is why the HedgeCo Websites platform is compliant with the PCI Data Security Standards for the financial services industry.

We utilize industry standard firewall and intrusion detection & monitoring practices to ensure high availability and data integrity.  Our upstream providers are state-of-the-art network uplinks and are fully SAS70 certified. The physical hosting uplinks are from two completely different bandwidth providers: Internap and Cogent. Thus, there is no single point of failure for general internet connectivity for our client websites.  Server security procedures include:

  • Prevention of unencrypted FTP login
  • No 'root' SSH login
  • Brute-force SSH attack timeout policy
  • Continual monitoring of critical software security updates (Apache, PHP, MySQL), with patches being applied within 24 hours of receipt of notice.
  • Continual monitoring of system and application error logs, in order to detect anomalies and possible intrusion attempts.
  • HedgeCo Website Disaster Recovery Procedures

Back-Up Procedures

The HedgeCo Websites platform utilizes real-time database replication, as well as continual mirroring of server files to a secondary location. In the event of failure at the primary location, the secondary server can take over within minutes to provide seamless access to the HedgeCo client websites and applications, while recovery procedures are initiated on the primary server. In addition to mirroring of database and website content, backups of individual client accounts are conducted on a daily basis, and copies of backed up data are stored for a rolling seven day schedule.

We also provide means for clients to create on-demand backups of the data stored on our platform
