Multi level security for 100% availability-Cotendo
Cotendo has designed every aspect of its intelligent software and servicesarchitecture, from core to edge, to assure system stability and the security andconfidentiality of content, information, and transactions flowing through theCotendo network. Security-centric architecture and processes prevent directaccess, attacks and intrusions by shielding customers’ origin servers. Plus,aproprietary platform protects against the exploits that make many CDNproviders vulnerable to attacks. Cotendo provides maximum efficiency andunparalleled fortification for content delivery and Domain Name Services (DNS),with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance, SSLtransaction security, and top-level physical security. Cotendo’s multi-levelsecurity ensures sensitive data is highly protected— by powerful, stable,redundant systems—without risk of data leaks, loss or compromise.
Security-centric ArchitectureThe foundation of all services in the Cotendo CDN and SiteAcceleration Suite, security-centric system architecture minimizes andinstantly mitigates service attacks. Cotendo’s distributed networkarchitecture insulates content from the vulnerabilities of typical DNSand HTTP services, protecting sensitive data from lossor compromise.
Bypassing off-the-shelf CDN solutions, vulnerable to a longlist of exploits, Cotendo developed a robust, proprietarycontent delivery network to elevate protection and reliability.Additionally, Cotendo’s servers, configured with redundancyin mind from the start, are monitored 24/7 to ensure 100%availability for customers and their end users.
Distributed DNS configuration.To assure the integrity of the Cotendo configuration, all thecritical data on how to handle the network, customer traffic, andconfigurations is managed onthe central management server. Configurations update within oneminute of a change, and keeping the entire DNS configuration inmemory and distributed across the entire network ensures servicecontinuity, even if the main server fails.
Built-in redundancy andfailover.Cotendo Points of Presence (POPs) areclusters of servers designed with “virtualclusters” that include built-in redundancyand automatic failover—both within andbetween POPs.
24/7 monitoring.Cotendo’s Site Assure and other tools monitor server and POPactivities aroundthe-clock. Cotendo quickly tracks, in realtime, any attack attempts on the system, and isolates andresolves problems before they affect any customer. Cotendoproactively detects potential problems in a specific server orPOP and can automatically failover or reroute to anotherlocation to ensure uninterrupted service. 866.749.6462 email@example.com | www.cotendo.com
