We’re proud to announce a series of security enhancements and features to myVelocity for each of our customers. With so many changes arriving, let’s take a moment to look at each one.

Session Manager

The Session Manager is shown right on the Dashboard. Featuring IP, location, and active time for every active session on your account at a glance. With one click terminate individual session or all sessions.


IP Protection

The new IP Protection feature requires that all sessions from new locations (IPs) are approved via a link sent to the account holder’s email. If you manage your account from multiple locations, you will be asked to authorize each of the IP’s once. You may also manually manage the IPs authorized to access your account from the new Account Security section of myVelocity.


2 Factor Auth

In addition to these passive security features, we also now support 2 Factor Auth. With 2 Factor Auth enabled, you must have your username, password, and your phone to access your account. This is an opt-in feature found in the new Account Security Section of myVelocity. In a few easy steps you can setup 2 Factor Auth using your cell phone. We suggest Google Authenticator but you can use any other TOTP compatible system you wish (Authy, etc).


Security Questions

myVelocity users now have the ability to select and provide answers for the security questions which will be used when they call Hivelocity’s support telephone line. If you haven’t logged in since we’ve released this feature, you will be required to answer 3 questions before continuing to use your account. If you’d like to select new questions or change your existing answers, there is a simple reset button provided.

Aside from the Session Manager, which can be found on the Dashboard, all of these new features can be found under the new Account Security tab in Billing & Account.

Rapid Restore

Backup your entire server’s data every night and have access to 5 days of rolling restore points.  Restore your server’s data, OS and configuration any time you need it.

Our Rapid Restore service saves the day during accidental data loss, hardware failures and virus contraction. Simply pick your recovery point and restore the data from that day. 

DDoS Protection

While our competitors may advertise DDoS protection, most often, they are merely implementing easily evaded router rules or simply black-holing targeted servers. They consider this “DDoS protecting their network.” However, neither of these solutions should give comfort to any online business. Should your site be attacked, chances are likely both of these options will end with your server being taken offline. At Hivelocity, we take the responsibility of keeping your servers online very seriously. For this reason, we offer two very serious forms of DDoS protection.

FREE

Every solution we provide includes our Filtering Edge of Network System (FENS). FENS is a series of proprietary systems that proactively monitors and protects the entire Hivelocity Network from most common Denial of Service (DOS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.

$15/MONTH PER SERVER

For an extra fee, you can enhance your server’s protection further with the addition of our Server Defense System. Our Server Defense System sits in front of your server, inspecting inbound data and looking for malicious traffic. The moment an attack is detected, it instantly begins scrubbing each data packet. Hivelocity’s Server Defense System delivers business continuity even in the face of massive and complex attacks.

Our Server Defense System is like adding an alarm and armed guard to your business, alerting you to and destroying anything attempting to jump that fence. Our Server Defense System utilizes internally developed proprietary systems in addition to Corero’s Threat Defense Smartwalls for data packet scrubbing. Each of our data centers is a scrubbing center with Corero Smartwalls on-premise, allowing us to provide on-prem zero-lag data scrubbing.

SSL Certificates

The security of your online commerce and protecting your customers’ data is as important to us as it is to you. When your customers see the green bar, they will know their connection to you is protected. We offer single domain, multi-domain, and wild-card certificates.

We offer industry leading 128-bit encryption certificates, allowing you to conduct e-commerce with complete security. Inspire confidence in your customers by displaying any number of seals and indicators certifying that your site is secure.

Load Balancing

Adding this service to two servers with identical content will allow you to distribute your load evenly across your hardware. Don’t lose business because you couldn’t handle the demand. Load balance and handle your biggest resource spikes with ease.

Firewalls

Stop attacks, prevent unauthorized access, and achieve regulatory compliance. Our Juniper hardware firewalls offload the work so your server never has to consume resources protecting itself from malicious traffic. A single firewall can be used to protect multiple servers.

Cloud Storage

Cloud storage offers users redundancy and easy accessibility, ensuring your data remains secure and readily available. Scale to as much as you need for only a 20¢/GB.

Cloud Storage is distributed and replicated across many servers, protecting your data from hardware failure. Highly scalable, it can handle thousands of client connections via TCP/IP. Connect to your virtual drive with SFTP, FTP, and SSHMount and in the future NFS and AFP. Cloud Storage is based on a stackable design which is upgradeable up to 2TB per instance.
