Technical Details

Security is the primary concern at Digital Planet and our environment has been designed to provide you with complete peace of mind by offering the highest levels of security.

We have implemented our design with security technology from the leading vendors in this area including Cisco, CheckPoint, Juniper and F5.


Our design guarantees that the data, servers or network traffic of one customer never come into contact with those of another;

  • each customer’s data resides in a separate virtual domain, which is only available to them
  • each customer is assigned a dedicated set of VLANs to connect their virtual servers
  • each customer’s network is secured by a dedicated firewall, configured solely to maximise security in their network.


In addition to building our infrastructure to the highest standards of security, we help ensure our customers’ environments are deployed with the most appropriate security practices to meet their needs.
