Security and deployments

SilverStripe Cloud Platform takes care of your day-to-day security-related maintenance burdens and gives you the tools to make your deployments easier.

Ongoing security issues take you away from development

Your website and web apps need to be continually maintained to remain secure. Each day, dozens of security advisories are released that may affect the security of your server, databases, operating system, and open source software. If you discover a vulnerability in your environments, you’ll need to quickly develop a patch to protect your organisation from downtime or more malicious outcomes.

Botnet, Hackers, Spam, Denial of Service

A reactive approach to security often results in dropping everything to deal with the latest 'fire'. Pulling your teams off projects to fix security issues results in lost time, lost revenue, and frustrates your teams. This disrupts your projects and derails your deadlines.

SilverStripe Cloud Platform takes a proactive approach to keep your websites and applications, staying one step ahead of malicious attacks. Access to your system components is separated and enforced to ensure high security and auditability. You can focus on developing great applications while we take care of protecting them.

Traffic to your website can be routed via a Web Application Firewall for an improved level of security. WAF help to filter out malicious traffic from legitimate traffic visiting your website. This helps mitigate downtime from Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), common cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection attacks on your site.
