How Do You Secure Your Office?

Every day, we hear more and more about data breaches, hacking, and cyber security incidents. We hear the news about malware, viruses, phishing, and the latest ways the “bad guys” want to steal our sensitive information.

But have you given any thought about how you’re protecting that very same information in the physical world? Sure your firewall has audit logs and intrusion detection, but what about your front door… or your back door?

As a service provider, Cloudstar must take all possible measures to protect customer data. To gain access to even the most boring of offices spaces, it takes 3 badge swipes, and bio-metric fingerprint access just to get through our main door. To go any further, all doors are protected with crypto-locks. Every action is logged, and every footstep is on recorded on multiple camera systems. Security is monitored 24×7 because we care about your privacy.

Cloudstar To Offer EMP & Nuclear Blast Proof Underground Data Protection

Replicate entire server images, or just critical files, to Cloudstar’s new underground servers housed in an ex-government facility hardened against EMP and Nuclear blast. The decision comes upon heightened alert due to North Korea’s most recent threats. Clients are demanding ways to “data vault” mission critical files in the event of a nationwide power grid outage, solar flare, Carrington Event, nuclear war, or high altitude Electromagnetic Pulse which threatens to destroy electronics and electronic data storage media.

The new service, coming soon, addresses these concerns by leasing space in an ex-government cold-war error communications bunker located deep underground in rural America.  The facility is hardened against EMP by being 100% surrounded by continuous welded steel, with all that’s needed to ensure continuous operation, included generators, and life support systems, also being located 100% underground inside the nuclear blast proof facility.

This option will come at a premium but will no doubt provide peace of mind to those that wish to stay in business post nuclear apocalypse.

Is Your Email Secure? Maybe Not

The American Association of Notaries promotes Cloudstar subsidiary “Notary Transfer” in their latest article found HERE 

“In 2016, over 250 million email accounts were hacked. This should be a cause for concern to notaries when you consider the amount of non-public information our emails contain. A breach of an email account could result in loss of business, damage to reputation, restitution to injured parties and more.”

Hurricane Irma Preparations

For the past week, our local Operations Team has been monitoring the storm that is currently in the Caribbean and may make its way up the Florida coast next week.  We have performed all of our hurricane preparation procedures and are ready for the rain, high winds, and potential disruption of utility power.  Fuel has been topped off in the generators with fuel vendors on stand-by, if need be.  Emergency staff has been prepped and will be available should the weather reach the Jacksonville area.

Our redundant Operations Center located in New Jersey is also on stand by ready to move server work loads as necessary. All redundant Internet circuits have been tested and satellite based telephone links have been verified between both the northern and southern facilities.

Event updates will be posted on our Critical Updates Blog HERE where customers can stay informed for real time news and alerts.

UPDATE: We are happy to report that no customers experienced any downtime throughout the duration of the hurricane.  All redundant systems operated as expected as did onsite generators.
