Here at 34SP.com we are continuously looking for ways to keep your websites more secure. Whether you are on a reseller hosting plan, or shared web hosting we are working hard to keep all viruses, and other malicious activity from affecting your website.
One recent addition to our security has been the addition of Atomic Secured Linux (ASL) on our Professional level servers. In a few words, Atomic Secured Linux increases server security, thus preventing web based attacks, viruses, hacks, and other malicious compromises.
As mentioned, clients on Professional level servers (currently prohost 1-4) as of the last few weeks, will start to receive the additional security benefits of the new ASL service we have implemented. Here are the details according to Wikipedia:
”Atomic Secured Linux is an easy to use out-of-the-box Unified Security Suite addon for Linux systems designed to protect your servers against both known and unknown zero day threats. Unlike other security solutions, ASL is designed for beginners and experts alike. You just install ASL and it does the work for you.
ASL works by combining security at all layers, from the Kernel all the way up to the application layer to provide the most complete protection available for Linux servers and helps to ensure that your system is compliant with commercial and government security standards. ASL includes the most hardened kernel on the market, automated system hardening techniques, userspace and host Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), malware/rootkit detection and elimination, blacklisting technologies, an autolearning Role Based Access Control System and web application firewalling to protect multiuser and web application hosting environments like no other solution. ASL is uniquely effective at addressing emerging threats posed by vulnerabilities in today’s complex systems and applications, such as web hosting environments, multiuser systems, CRM’s, ERPs, forums, shopping carts, Content Management systems and custom applications.
The design of ASL approaches securing the server and its applications, by combining different layers of security technologies and application layer firewalls to filter out malicious content before it reaches your system and its applications. Our hardened kernel further enhances the overall security model by enforcing anti-rootkit, file, network and process level security policies on the system.
The ASL approach also includes our “Just In Time Patching” system, which allows you to address security threats posed by applications where either it is not possible to fix the application due to lack of source code, availability of resources, or the number of applications that make repairing all vulnerabilities economically unfeasible. You can known that your systems are protected, even when you can’t patch them.”

As a final note, the cost of these enhanced security measures on the Professional hosting servers will be paid by 34SP.com with no increase in hosting or security fees to our Professional hosting clients. Just safer, more secure websites.
