5-Tier Security

Ensuring your environment is safe and secure 24/7

No single security device is enough to secure your data; security requires a multi-layered Defense in Depth approach combined with a 24/7 team.

We’re different because we understand that your data is valuable and security should be more than an up sell opportunity after you’ve had a compromise.

Cyber attackers know that once they’ve penetrated a system, it’s much easier to move laterally. That’s why Edge provides every customer a dedicated firewall, intrusion detection system, intrusion prevention system, netflow packet analysis, private VLANs, perimeter filtering and enterprise antivirus.

On an average day, we stop millions of cyber attacks against your applications and infrastructure so you can focus on growing your business.

100% Transparency – You See what we see

What is Defense in Depth?

Defense in Depth is the coordinated use of multiple security countermeasures to protect the integrity and confidentiality of the information assets in your enterprise. Based on the military principle that it is more difficult for an enemy to defeat a complex and multi-layered defense system than to penetrate a single barrier.

Security Dashboards




Tier 1 – Physical/Perimeter Security

Datacenters with guards, cameras, biometric entry prevent physical intrusions.

Redundant Tier 1 Internet carriers connected to border routers and firewalls filter known threats, automated attacks, malicious traffic, DDoS filters, bogon IPs, bad ports and untrusted networks.

Tier 2 – Intrusion Prevention & Detection

Edge’s IPS provides deep packet inspection in real time at multi 10 gigabit speeds blocking packets and application attacks. Rules are updated daily and include most zero-day exploits.

Machines that have launched attacks against Edge customers or that have been associated with cyber criminals are quarantined and not permitted into the Edge network.

Tier 3 – Dedicated Firewalls/VLANs

Dedicated high-performance Cisco ASA firewalls are used to achieve complete isolation between environments. Because each client’s security needs are different, our firewall administrators work with you to tune your firewall rules for your specific applications.

Tier 4 – Web Application Firewalls

Edge’s web application firewalls protect your data from hackers as they try to exploit weaknesses in code. Every web request is inspected for Cross Site Scripting, SQL Injection, Path Traversal and 400+ other attacks.

Edge’s security team works with you to craft very precise rules to prevent false positives without increasing risk.
