PrimaCloud Security

PrimaCloud was designed from the ground up for the security of your applications and data.    ENKI ensures the security of your Virtual Private Data Centers through a combination of active and passive security measures, including certified data center locations with physical security plans and backup systems, programmable firewalls and routers, data and infrastructure hiding, data encryption, user-definable software and networking elements in your VPDC, internal security practices, and optional compliance-oriented security and data protection services as detailed on our Security Services page.   These practices and services are sufficient to ensure that the hosting portions of your compliance requirements - including FedRamp, HIPAA and PCI - are met completely, no matter which compliance regulations you wish to achieve.

ENKI's approach to security is to use the power of our VMware virtualized environment and virtual private datacenters to enable you to design - or design for you as part of our services - a security architecture and infrastructure that exactly matches the needs of your business and your application.   With access to thousands of virtualized security appliances and the ability to configure your virtual private datacenter over the web to conform to any netowork topology, we can meet any security requirement.   And, security doesn't have to be expensive: starting with the essential basics of per-VM full data encryption and a Web Application Firewall at as little as $100/mo will protect you from many of the most common attacks and vulnerabilities, including events like the recent theft of millions of patient records from Anthem!
