In today's era of WordPress and plug-and-play sites, it's worth keeping in mind that some of the most important features your clients depend on are security, privacy, and infrastructure support.

Our web hosting services are backed by the power of our state-of-the-art data center – the same center that supports the needs of thousands of core processing clients. We have industry-leading expertise in delivering physical and logistical security and data protection.

Website Hosting Includes

  • 100% Environment vulnerability scanning
  • 100% Software source code scanning
  • Real-time security infrastructure and network monitoring
  • Virus scanning, intrusion detection / prevention
  • Redundant internet backbone providers
  • Load-balanced servers with backups in a separate datacenter
  • Vulnerability scanning & remediation planning
  • Threat intelligence


A website is a virtual branch for your customers, but provides around-the-clock access to your clients. As such, it is vital to have a site that supported by our extensive technical experience.

A More Detailed Look at FIS Security

FIS employs a defense-in-depth strategy by putting multiple compensating controls into place to protect our clients’ data from malicious activity. These combined efforts demonstrate our approach to threat mitigation.

  • Network Segmentation: Separates production networks from non-production networks, reducing risk and delivering a more secure environment for our customers.
  • Firewall Controls: Defines what communication is allowed or blocked to assist in controlling access to company or client data.
  • Additional Network Controls: FIS deploys a variety of additional network controls such as IDS/IPS, IP reputation, NAC, incident response, behavior analysis, as well as forward and reverse proxies, among others, to provide policing of the network transport for inappropriate or malicious intended traffic.
  • Application and Network Penetration Testing: Includes leveraging automated and manual tools to attempt to find complex and obscure vulnerabilities. FIS follows penetration testing industry best-practices including NIST, OWASP and PCI.
  • DDoS Protection: Includes incident response, ISP engagement, third party scrubbers, intrusion prevention system adjustments, and contacting law enforcement. 
  • Static Application Security Testing (SAST): All code is scanned prior its release to production. Code is scanned with a top industry static scanning tools that support industry standard rules, including Open Web Application Security Project’s (OWASP) Top 10 vulnerabilities, SANS Institute / Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) Top 25, and others.
  • Vulnerability Scanning: Primarily focused on identifying insecure system configurations, vulnerabilities due to missing security patches, or the use of outdated software on internal or external hosts. FIS currently scans external hosts weekly, internal hosts monthly, upon server build request, and ad-hoc to support remediation processes. Over 500,000 IPs are scanned monthly.
  • Intrusion Detection/Prevention: IPS/IDS systems provide a key control layer at the network perimeter and between data centers to identify malicious activity, log information about this activity, attempt to block or stop the activity, and report on it.
  • Egress Monitoring: FIS subscribes to a service for Internet egress network traffic analysis which helps identify potential intruders’ activities in near real-time.
  • Security Event Monitoring: FIS collects and stores our systems and network devices logs within a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution, which provides correlation and cross reporting capabilities. This enables FIS to proactively investigate security anomalies, malicious and/or out-of-policy activity, and identify potential threats.
  • Threat Intelligence: The FIS Threat intelligence unit maintains established relationships with our financial sector partners, the Financial Services – Information Sharing and Analysis center (FS-ISAC), law enforcement, and various intelligence and information security communities. FIS has relationships with the US Secret Service, the Department of Homeland Security National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center, Interpol, the United Kingdom’s National Crime Agency, the US State Department’s International Law Enforcement Academies, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Overseas Security Advisory Council, and the Domestic Security Alliance Council. FIS is one of five financial services institutions to formally partner with the Cybercrime Center.
