Los Angeles, California – (The Hosting News) – February 12, 2008 – Web hosting and managed services firm, Verio, Inc., recently led a session at the SCALE 6X event, on Virtual Subhosting Security, for business owners and resellers, to provide insight and practical experience on best practices.
The session provided techniques to employ the most secure Virtual Subhosting for VPS accounts. Verio provided attendees with recommendations to secure the VPS environment, its web server and hosted applications and content.
The event was held at the Westin Los Angeles Airport Los Angeles, CA. As a performance engineer for Verio, Rin Ure hosted the event and has been instrumental in the development and deployment of Verio’s Linux VPS solution. In addition to his role at Verio, Mr. Ure is a member of the ISACA Salt Lake City Chapter (Information Systems Audit and Control Association) and also serves as Vice President of the Forensics’s Academic Forum for ITT Technical Institute in Murray, Utah. Continual exploration of server environmental security has led Rin to begin development of algorithms which have the potential to create a new gigabit encryption standard.
Virtual Subhosting allows businesses to support multiple VPS on the same physical server. Each VPS appears and performs virtually the same as the physical server, but is isolated from impacting other VPS’s on the same physical machine. Even if a virtual server is hacked, the physical machine and other virtual servers are still secure, and a user on one VPS cannot detect anything happening to another VPS on the same physical machine. To protect a business using VPS technology, vigilance in implementation of security techniques is still critical in each of the virtual environments. As the inventor of Virtual Private Server technology in 1996, Verio continues to be the foremost expert in this innovative type of server infrastructure and hosting.
