This benefits our clients greatly as the company is built on solid technical expertise.

4) Localweb.com – Stringent Security Standards:

Your data is kept safe through our rigorous monitoring (every 2.5 minutes from three geographically dispersed locations), as well as physical security (on-site armed security guards and surveillance). Furthermore, we deploy “Defense-in-Depth” protocol to server and network security. In other words, layers of security are applied to eliminate a single point of failure.

5) Localweb.com – SSAE 16 Type II Data Centers:

We have multiple data center space for maximum redundancy. Each of the data centers is SSAE 16 (Formally known as SAS 70) Type II certified. This ensures that HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley requirements for control and security are met. The data centers are located in Research Triangle Park, NC, commonly known as the technical hub of America. Data centers require biometric access and have environmentally controlled racks, backup power, on-site security personnel and 24/7 surveillance.

6) Top-Notch Network Traffic:

All servers are connected to our core switches via 100mb Ethernet connections; Gigabit Ethernet is also available.

7) Load -Balancing and Fail-Over:

This balances the load among different carriers and enables the load to be switched seamlessly and instantly. If your network experiences a backlog or if one provider’s network goes down, your web traffic can be re-routed so you don’t experience any lost sales. Furthermore, if one server fails, other server automatically takes its place.
