Web application attacks are one of the most serious risks in today’s threat landscape. They’re prevalent – seven out of ten environments will be attacked an average of 40 times during a year – and they’re dangerous, implicated in many high-profile data breaches.

Protect your data, your reputation – your business – with onTop Security as a Service.

onTop Security as a Service powered by Alert Logic Web Security Manager gives you the web application firewall technology necessary to protect against one of the most serious risks in today’s threat landscape and the services to implement, manage, and maintain it effectively and efficiently.

Web application attacks are one of the most serious risks in today’s threat landscape. They’re prevalent – seven out of ten environments will be attacked an average of 40 times during a year – and they’re dangerous, implicated in many high-profile data breaches. From SQL injection attempts to cross-site scripting exploits, solid protection is essential.

Web application firewalls (WAFs) are an ideal technology for this purpose – able to understand web app traffic and intercept attacks, they’re a practical approach to guarding your applications and data. However, they also require expert tuning and management to be effective; otherwise, they impact site availability by blocking legitimate traffic, or are tuned down to a level where they are no longer effective.

With onTop Security as a Service, powered by Alert Logic Web Security Manager, you get both – the web application firewall technology to protect you, and the services to implement it effectively and efficiently.

Rave Reviews

While there are numerous hosting providers to choose from, we found that only onTop Technology Corp had “above and beyond” personalized service backed by the integrity of a Tier III certified data center. By partnering with onTop, we were able to greatly enhance our IT infrastructure.

Here at BidTracer we have developed a cloud based software for construction. Many of the challenges these days of having the expertise on staff at our company has been answered by onTop’s knowledgeable staff. They have set up our phone system integrated with Microsoft Lync and made it a seamless switch over. They are there throughout the whole process and you can tell they take pride in their work.

We grow by acquiring new stations. Each time, I have to integrate the station into the corporate network, which takes three to four days. onTop is working on a ‘station-in-a-box’ idea that will enable a new station to literally plug right in. onTop is helping us figure out how to better scale.
SPARROW relies on onTop for help managing infrastructure costs. That’s strategic. If you can’t manage your infrastructure cost it affects overall profitability.
Matanda Doss, SPARROW
Whereas the old IT vendor delivered an ‘out-of-the-box’ solution – that is, more capacity – onTop helped us figure out how to put our IT capacity to best use. They helped us align our IT infrastructure to our business objectives. That has been a critical element in our successful growth.

If we can’t be scalable and highly available then we lose customers. Our strategy is of course to keep them. onTop helps us do that.
Matanda Doss, SPARROW
Before onTop, we were with a provider that didn’t really care about how we used – or even if we used – the capacity they had sold us. To increase our compute capacity we had to buy CPU, RAM, etc. in ‘buckets’ whether we needed it or not. In order to get what we needed of one thing, we ended up overbuying in other areas. That’s good for the seller, not so much for us.
Mark White, AppointmentPlus
Your infrastructure is the foundation for your operations success. By leveraging a scalable solution you can focus almost exclusively on the operation of your company and the growth model you have. The hardware limitations in a self-hosted environment are removed with a partner such as onTop.

Business growth today is driven as much if not more by growing profit margins than by growing revenue. IT plays an instrumental role in that growth.
