Secure & reliable

Secure & reliable access

All your content on Sympose is protected by bank-level security and best-practices on our fast, reliable servers.

Bank-level security

Sympose uses the same security that online banking uses: a 128-bit key Secure Socket Layer (SSL) digital security certificate to encrypt the transmission of all content between users and your Sympose website.

Strong password protection

All content on Sympose is password-protected. Best-practice password management procedures are inbuilt into the system including:

  • Mandatory minimum password strength rated Strong
  • Passwords encrypted and non-reversible
  • Mandatory password reset every 12 months
  • Users unable to reuse old passwords
  • Login flood control to protect against brute force password cracking

Security updates promptly implemented

All the latest security updates to the Drupal Content Management System, the technology platform that Sympose is built on, are installed by our system administrators as soon as they become available.

Fast, reliable & secure serving

We guarantee 99.95% uptime* with Sympose.

We use fast processors, high capacity memory and solid-state drives on dedicated servers to ensure that server response times are quick.

Our servers operate at full redundancy and our systems are engineered to stay up even if multiple servers fail. 

Our end hosting provider employs best-practice to secure the perimeter of Sympose's network with firewalls, Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), and Virtual Private Networks (VPN).

Sympose web servers have never been compromised.

* Excludes scheduled maintenance periods, which are typically out of normal business hours.

Daily back-ups

All site content is automatically backed up and encrypted on a daily basis. Extended off-site back-up options are also available upon request.
