We do big data and we’ve never lost a single byte. The Bigstep Metal Cloud has been purpose-built to provide the isolation and security of on-premises deployments, with the elasticity of the cloud. Clients benefit from dedicated networks and have full control over their cloud environments.
Every Compute Instance is a physically isolated, performance-optimized bare metal server. Security risks associated with multi-tenant virtualized environments are completely eliminated.
After provisioning, root access credentials can be changed, preventing anyone from accessing client systems. Security procedures such as Active Directory integration or patching can also be applied.
Each client network is physically isolated and switch ports are physically dedicated to individual client accounts. Traffic cannot be intercepted or injected in any way into client controlled networks.
You are in complete control of the network, at the physical level. There is no virtual switching involved and no multi-tenancy.
All critical data is encrypted. Clear text passwords are not stored in the database. We only store hashes of passwords with a long salt.
All operations performed on switches are authenticated by RADIUS to prevent unauthorized access.
The site is manned 24/7 by dedicated security teams. Physical security barriers around the perimeter of the site, 24/7 monitored CCTV and card-restricted multi-layer access points also guarantee that data is kept safe at all times.
We are ISO 27001 / 2013 certified and in the process of being PCI DSS certified. We also work with our clients in achieving certifications or internal audits if required.
Firewalls are very client-specific as enterprises have different security standards. For this reason, we deploy and connect to each client’s individual solution to create DMZs and isolated areas.
