Security – First & Always

Your Security is always on our mind.

For us at Cloudways, Security is not an afterthought. Rather, it is an essential component of our platform at all levels. Starting from the IaaS level firewalls and IDS, we have integrated security measures right upto the login page.

From regular app and OS patching to implementing 2FA logins for all users, you will see security not as an add-on but something that is fundamental to the way we work to make sure that you continue to enjoy hassle free and secure managed cloud hosting experience.

So whether you are an enterprise, SMB, agency or freelancer, rest assure that Team Cloudways is ever-vigilant and ready to deal with security threats as soon as they are discovered!

Every Cloudways Account Comes With

Firewalls

Every Cloudways managed server comes with a firewall that allows access only to specific ports that are required for applications to function.

Login Security

For our users, rate-limiting for SSH and SFTP logins is a simple yet effective method to dealing with brute-force login attacks.

Bot Protection

Protect your WordPress websites from traffic congestion caused by malicious bots, brute force login attacks and Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks with the help of our technology partner, Malcare.

Database Security

By default, the database cannot be accessed remotely. However, users can whitelist IP addresses to set up secure database remote access.

Application Isolation

While the users can launch multiple applications on a single server, each application is isolated from the rest, thus preventing application level issues to compromise the entire server.

SSL Certificates

We provide all users with FREE Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates to ensure security of application’s data in transit.

User Role Management

Cloudways primary account holders can set up customized server access lists to provide access to server functionalities as and when needed.

Operating System’s Security & Patching

Cloudways is powered by Debian, partly because of the strong and prompt patch management system. Our engineers regularly follow-up with Debian community to remain updated with the current issues/vulnerabilities in Debian and patch the customer servers as soon as the patch is made available.

Cloudways Bug Bounty Program

Server security is a team sport! For this, we have partnered with BugCrowd to crowdsource vulnerability discovery in Cloudways Platform.

GDPR Compliance

Our compliance with the requirements of European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is just another demonstration of our commitment to the security of customer data and our large European customer base.

Two-Factor Authentication

Access to our platform is protected with industry standard Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) to strengthen platform security and minimize the incidents of unauthorized access to user account.

End-to-End Encryption

The Cloudways platform is fully protected with end-to-end encryption that ensures that all data in transit is protected and encrypted with HTTPS protocol, preventing access to data during transfer from one system to another.

Suspicious Device Login Control

Cloudways checks all devices that attempt to access your account. In case a device (or a login attempt) is flagged as ‘Suspicious’, you are notified by email, the login process is interrupted and appropriate actions are taken to verify your identity.
