Jamal Pilger, CIO/CTO of Galasource remarked, â€œWeâ€™ve always been reliant on our websites for online sales and order processing, and we recently decided to entrust Data393 to manage our web hosting infrastructure while we focus on supporting our customers in the restaurant and hospitality industry. Ensuring our websites are always available and performing well for our customers is critical. Data393 provides us with managed dedicated hosting, load balancing and enhanced security products like a virtual private network and SecureData data protection to make certain we are operating securely and effectively at any time during any situation.â€
Galasource is taking advantage of Data393â€™s Virtual Private Network, which encrypts data over a secured channel to prevent outside interception while giving authorized personnel safe access at multiple locations.
