Updates & Security
Security of your online shop
We make use of a very special server set-up, specially developed for our purposes. instead of running all the website requests trough one single server, we split the requests to make it less complex for the server to build a website page. The load balancer splits/merges the web page and sends it to the database server, file server and the cache server. This set-up sounds complex, but it really isn’t.
Actually if you think about it, it is quite logical.. this way you can optimize the servers for their needs, making a super fast Database server / file server and cache server!
And all these servers are redundant, if one fails, there is a back-up running with no data loss! – And no ‘closed door’!
Your webshop contains a lot of sensitive information and you don’t want that somebody tries to hack your site, or worse a spammer/phisher takes this data.
We have a team of specialist that monitor our server 24/7 and are actively searching for security leaks and update within an hour if needed. (like with the heartbleed leak)
In case something goes wrong, we make daily database back-ups and weekly file back-ups. these back-ups will run during the early hours when the load on the servers is low. This is done to not affect the performance of your webshop since speed is very important.
An important step to keep your online shop as secure as possible is to use the latest versions of the software used. We check weekly if there any software updates available and check on our test-server if they co-work well with other instalments, and then we install the updates on the live server. These updates will be installed as part of the service, you don’t have to worry about them!
