subheading text here

At DEKA IT, we consider security fundamental to the premium service we provide our customers. In fact, our business is predicated on our ability to offer a more secure environment than our customers could deploy themselves on-premise. Our comprehensive approach to security has earned the trust of our valued clients who rely on our Hosted Exchange Services every day.

“Deka has continued to provide the highest level of service and security at a price that is impossible to implement on-premise”

— John Nabb ICB

Security features

Security controls extend across every aspect of our business including:

  • Data replication

    In addition to regular backups, DEKA IT replicates Exchange data in real time from one set of premium hardware to another. This protects the critical information your business keeps within Exchange, even in the event of hardware failure or database corruption. It also enables DEKA to rapidly restore the full functionality of your Exchange environment should an issue occur.

  • Multi-tenant platform security

    Multiple redundant, enterprise-class firewall systems integrate firewall, VPN and traffic management to prevent unwarranted intrusions and ensure only authorized users access your Exchange environment. We also use an intrusion detection system (IDS) to detect malicious network traffic and computer usage that often cannot be caught by a conventional firewall.

  • Physical security

    We invest a great deal more in physical security than most IT organizations could ever afford. Each of our four U.S. based data centers is closely monitored and guarded 24x7x365 with sophisticated pan/tilt closed-circuit TVs. Secure access is strictly enforced using the very latest technology, including electronic man-trap devices between lobby and datacenter, motion sensors, and controlled ID key-cards. Security guards are stationed at every entrance to the site and site access is restricted.

  • Email security and continuity

    DEKA IT offers a full suite of products that provides our customers with secure and always available email:

    • Antispam: All Intermedia Exchange accounts include SpamStopper™, our advanced antispam software, to provide the ultimate in spam protection at no cost.
    • VirusStopper: Intermedia provides comprehensive managed antivirus protection of all Exchange mailboxes, free of charge. This advanced software catches 99.999 percent of all viruses that could potentially infiltrate and harm your mailboxes and Exchange environment. (*Note it is vital that you continue to protect your company computers by employing a domain wide Anti-Virus solution. This helps prevent the spread of malicious software.)
    • Content filtering: Exchange customers can limit email content to comply with acceptable business use policies, company, state and federal communications regulations.
    • Encrypted mail: Email between mailboxes on our system is natively encrypted. Clients can also use our Secure Mail to communicate externally with military-grade encryption of email and attachments.
  • SaS 70 type II certification

    DEKA is SAS 70 Type II certified company-wide, not just at the datacenter level. This rigorous certification requires an independent auditor to validate, in their opinion, that the controls and processes in use are effective over its one year evaluation period.

  • PCI compliance

    DEKA IT has passed the strict testing procedures to be PCI compliant. This assures credit card payments processed through a hosted site are secure from fraud and data compromise.

  • Dedicated security staff and employee controls

    DEKA IT offers a dedicated, full-time security staff, led by a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) analyst. Every employee, regardless of their role, undergoes a rigorous background check.

    Employee access to passwords, encryption keys and electronic credentials is also strictly controlled.
