Better Security. Happier Hosting.

Discover how we keep the Kualo flock safe and secure.

At Kualo, we employ a range of technologies that help keep our servers exceptionally stable, and our customers' web sites safe. Surprisingly, many hosts don't employ similar technology which can often result in their servers experiencing overloads, downtime, or worse - facing critical security problems.

A happy flock

In an ideal world, a server will contain a happy flock of accounts...

...but every flock has a black sheep.

He didn't keep his site software up-to-date and his web site has been hacked. The other sheep are worried:

"Will this affect me?", they bleat.

At other hosts...

...things don't look so rosy. At many hosts, one hacked account can result in other accounts on the server also being compromised - leading to a very sick flock indeed.

Not so at Kualo

Our servers use Hive, a unique "chroot" isolation technology which completely segregates every account on the server. One compromised account can never affect another.

Good sheep gone bad?

At Kualo, Hive protects you from the bad sheep. But we want to go further and try and ensure that our servers are completely free of black sheep. After all, they were once good sheep, too!

So, why do the good sheep go bad?

Poor Maintenance

Having great security requires constant maintenance. Out-of-date software can let unwanted visitors in - like a hole in the fence.

Many hosts run on outdated server-side software with countless security issues, and website owners equally forget to update their client-side applications such as Joomla and WordPress.

Running outdated software, for even the briefest of periods, can lead to security vulnerabilities that can turn a good sheep bad.

Patchman secure

At Kualo, we're constantly maintaining the fence by updating server side software; we even roll out many security fixes before they're officially released.

What's more, our servers are scanned every day by our Patchman vulnerability and malware scanner. As soon as a new vulnerability is found in common applications such as WordPress or Joomla, Patchman will safely apply it to your site. Using a unique methodology, Patchman reverse engineers security patches so that they're compatible with the version of the software you're using. This means you can rest assured that our patches will never affect functionality.

If ever we find any actual malware in your account, we'll immediately quarantine it to keep your visitors safe, and email you to let you know.

Noisy Neighbours!

Nobody likes a noisy neighbour. On many hosts, one single site on a server can cause overloads which can bring a server to its knees, leading to slow load times or even outages.

Peace, Quiet & Stability

At Kualo, our resource management system keeps noisy neighbours at bay.

If one site uses excessive resources which would normally cause a server overload, it only affects their site, not yours.

Meet Guardian

The final piece of the jigsaw that keeps our flock happy is our artificial intelligent server admin: Guardian.

Keeping watch over our servers every 0.5 seconds, Guardian resolves problems before they become service affecting - far quicker than any human admin ever could. Guardian keeps our servers humming along in optimal health and helps avoid unwanted service outages.

The bottom line?

Happier, healthier hosting that's inherently more secure.

Our unique blend of technology helps keep our customers' web sites more secure, leading to faster, healthier servers and a much increased level of reliability and uptime.
