Web2 is a product of Lynch Incorporated (L2)
Security is a top priority for Web2. This site provides a high-level overview of our security practices for all of our web hosting solutions. Have questions or feedback? Feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com.
- All of our services run in the cloud. We don't host or run our own routers, load balancers, DNS servers, or physical servers. Our services are built on Amazon Web Services and Kinsta/Google Cloud. They provide strong security measures to protect our infrastructure and are compliant with most certifications. You can read more about their practices here: AWS and Kinsta
- We use Infrastructure as Code and Kinsta tooling to provision and manage cloud infrastructure and services. This gives us consistent, repeatable, and fast provisioning of development, test, and production environments.
Network level security protection
Our network security architecture consists of multiple security layers. We protect our networks to make sure no unauthorized access is performed using a mixture of these solutions:
- Containerized environment isolated from other applications.
- A virtual private cloud (VPC), and a bastion host or VPN with network access control lists (ACL's).
- A firewall that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic.
- Cloudflare Enterprise security.
- We use an application firewall solution to monitor and block potential malicious packets.
- IP address filtering.
Encryption in transit
- All data sent to or from our infrastructure is encrypted in transit via industry best-practices using Transport Layer Security (TLS) v1.2 or higher.
Encryption at rest
- All of our sensitive user data (including passwords) is encrypted in the database.
Data retention and removal
- Every user can request the removal of usage data by contacting support. Read more about our privacy settings at lynch2.com/terms-privacy-more-policies.
Business continuity and disaster recovery
- We back up all our critical assets and regularly attempt to restore the backup to guarantee a fast recovery in case of disaster.
- We have configured a web application firewall (AWS WAF, Cloudflare Enterprise WAF) in front of our web servers to help protect web applications from attacks.
- We use a security monitoring solution to get visibility into our application security, identify attacks and respond quickly to a data breach.
- We use technologies to monitor exceptions, logs and detect anomalies in our applications.
