Security Services

Managed Firewalls

Dedicated enterprise firewalls can be deployed to add additional security to a customer’s hosting solution. Firewalls can be fully configured and maintained by the expert PMGC engineering team including a four hour hardware replacement guarantee (upgradable to one hour), helping customers increase security for their hosted solutions.

Antivirus software

Antivirus protection can be installed to help protect against viruses and malware. Scan settings allow you to set the depth of protection and specify which file types must always be scanned and preset responses to suspicious and infected objects according to threat type. Hyper-V support and VMware Ready certification guarantees reliability in virtual environments. To save time and speed up performance, Kaspersky Lab’s proprietary technologies iSwift and iChecker will ensure only new and modified files are scanned in the future once the initial scan has taken place.

DDoS mitigation and protection services

PMGC’s DDoS mitigation and protection goes beyond network appliances and intrusion detection to prevent network traffic from being interrupted by distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. With our DDoS mitigation services, you can avoid DDoS attacks and downtime due to malicious hackers. Contact a PMGC solutions consultant for further information.

SSL Certificates

Security certificates are essential for customers who need secure communications or solutions for e-commerce. Through our partnership with industry leaders GeoTrust and Comodo we offer low cost, wide browser-recognition, digital security products featuring 256-bit SSL and EV certificates. These offer the highest commercially available level of security that has become the standard for e-commerce enabled websites or those that collect private information from users such as credit card numbers, account numbers or passwords.

PCI DSS compliance

Whether you’re an ecommerce vendor or a business accepting online card payments, you will need to meet the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance. Being PCI DSS compliant ensures your business reduces the risk of your customers' account data getting into the wrong hands.



PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a multifaceted security standard that meets the requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, software design and other critical protective measures. This comprehensive standard is intended to help organisations proactively protect customer payment account data.

Why do I need to be PCI DSS compliant?

The PCI DSS applies to all entities that store, process, and/or transmit cardholder data. It covers technical and operational system components included in or connected to cardholder data. If you are a merchant who accepts or processes payment cards, you must comply with the PCI DSS.

Penalties for not complying with PCI DSS range from an increase in security auditing to facing an unlimited amount of fines, or even losing the ability to process card transactions altogether. Of course the reputation of your business is also at risk if there is a data breach.

How do I become PCI DSS compliant?

There are four levels of PCI DSS compliance, and the level you require is dependent on two main factors:

1. Your transaction volume
2. How you process transaction information.
