Brandworkz Hosting and Security
Solid IT infrastructure meaning our platform can be scaled to meet your requirements
Hosting and Security features
An important factor for a successful web presence is the use of a server hosting solution which is cost effective, has enough bandwidth to cope with peak traffic, is secure, and guarantees you maximum uptime. Brandworkz prides itself on using Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver a scalable cloud computing platform with high availability and dependability, helping to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of our clients’ systems and data
Amazon Web Services is more secure than any other infrastructure available and has 99.999999999% server uptime.
The AWS global infrastructure is designed and managed according to security best practices as well as a variety of security compliance standards. You can be assured that your brand management site is being hosted in some of the most secure computing infrastructure in the world.
Physical and Environmental Security
AWS data centers are housed in nondescript facilities. Physical access is strictly controlled both at the perimeter and at building ingress points by professional security staff utilizing video surveillance, intrusion detection systems, and other electronic means. Authorized staff must pass two-factor authentication a minimum of two times to access data center floors. All visitors and contractors are required to present identification and are signed in and continually escorted by authorized staff. All physical access to data centers by AWS employees is logged and audited routinely.
Your homepage is polled every 3 minutes for an actual snippet of HTML from a different physical location to make sure it responds properly.
Detailed log reporting including traffic patterns, demographics, search phrases, etc.
Amazon has servers located in multiple locations all over the world. The servers are up-to-date, robust and powerful which means you will have a faster experience when using your Brandworkz site. Amazon Web Services is also multi-nodal ready. When you upload from any location in the world, your assets will be uploaded to your local Amazon server, giving you and your users a consistent upload speed wherever you are.
Currently you may notice that if a number of people are using your site at one time you can sometimes find it is slowing down. With Amazon, the servers detect the traffic on your site at any current time, and will automatically scale up the servers, ram and CPU so each person’s experience is consistent and equivalent to 100%.

Brandworkz uses Amazon Cloudfront CDN to facilitate faster download speeds for users in countries all over the world. Assets are automatically routed to a server nearest the country from which the download is being made, so content is delivered with the best possible speed performance.
In order to minimise the number of logins and passwords your end users will have to remember, as well as potential password resets, we can implement a single sign-on facility using SAML2.0. This enables users already authenticated on your corporate network to automatically log on to the Brand Portal without having to authenticate again.
Brandworkz is used by SMEs as well as very large enterprise-size businesses. It is scalable according to your company’s needs, so you can start small and Brandworkz will grow with you as your business expands.
We have clients with just a few assets using Brandworkz digital asset management, through to global businesses with 100,000 assets and several terabytes of storage using our integrated suite of features.
