As a business owner you worry about the security of the data on your servers. If your business is running any Linux servers you may have a new headache on your hands. A new critical vulnerability dubbed “Ghost” has been announced that impacts all Linux distributions, whether it is a file server, a web server, an e-mail server, etc…

This is a buffer overflow vulnerability that allows attackers to execute malicious code on servers, and steal data, and cause other sorts of trouble. Patches are available for this vulnerability, which will require server reboots, causing experts to believe that some systems will remain unpatched for some time.

As a business owner with Linux servers in the server room, who manages those servers for you, and who is going to install those patches? Do you have a third party IT company that can do it for you? Do you have IT on staff who can stop working on projects that improve your efficiency and drive your business forward so they can patch this for you?

We can move your servers to the cloud, where they will be monitored and patched for you without your intervention, so that you can focus on doing business, rather than worrying about your servers. After all, you didn’t start your business so you could worry about server vulnerabilities, did you?

Our providers can replicate your Linux (or Windows) server in the cloud, letting your focus on the data that is ON the server, rather than worrying about running the server itself.
