We deliver a security infrastructure comprised of current, proven, cutting-edge technologies. IQ Media delivers the most comprehensive security available – firewalls and encryption devices sourced from leading Internet security vendors, configured by expert professionals, and rigorously tested before going into production.
Production equipment is located in Newark, DE., at a facility which provides 24-hour physical security, palm print and picture identification, redundant electrical generators, redundant data center air conditioners and other back-up equipment designed to keep servers continually up and running.
Perimeters of production and corporate networks are protected by firewalls developed by leading security vendors.
Data Encryption (provided upon request)
IQ Media offers 128-bit SSL for secure HTTP connections between client computers and our servers.
The lock icon in the browser indicates that data is fully shielded from access while in transit.
Users access IQ Media only with a valid username and password combination, which is optionally encrypted via SSL while in transmission.
Our robust application security model prevents one IQ Media customer from accessing another’s data.
This security model is reapplied with every request and enforced for the entire duration of a user session.
Internal Systems Security
Inside of the perimeter firewalls, systems are safeguarded by network address translation, port redirection, IP masquerading, non-routable IP addressing schemes, and more. Exact details of these features are proprietary.
Operating System Security
IQ Media enforces tight operating system-level security by using a minimal number of access points to all production servers.
We protect all hosts with strong passwords.
All hosts are maintained at each vendor’s recommended patch levels for security.
All hosts are hardened by disabling and/or removing any unnecessary users, protocols and processes.
Whenever possible, database access is controlled at the operating system and database connection level for additional security.
Access to production databases is limited to a number of points.
Server Management Security
All data entered into the IQ Media application by a customer is owned by that customer.
IQ Media employees do not have direct access to the IQ Media production equipment, except where necessary for system management, maintenance, monitoring, and back-ups.
IQ Media does not utilize any managed service providers. The IQ Media site operations team provides all system management, maintenance, monitoring and back-ups.
Reliability and Backup
All networking components, load balancers, Web servers, and application servers are configured in a redundant configuration.
All customer data is automatically backed up to tape on a nightly basis. Back-up tapes are moved to secure, fire-resistant off-site storage on a regular basis. Disaster recovery plans are in place.
