StormSecure provides a 100% uptime guarantee ensuring that your website is always online, and always available to any internet-connected device. Used by more than 6 million websites, including major e-commerce sites, government agencies, and enterprises.

Protect your data & ensure GDPR compliance

On 25th May 2018, the new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) legislation came into effect and applies to all individuals and organisations who store data. Fines of up to £500,000 or 4% of annual turnover are set to be imposed on anyone who does not comply or suffers a data breach. Combining our partnership with Cloudflare with our years of managed hosting and online security experience, we will help ensure that your data is safe, secure and compliant at all times.

Our unique Data Breach Insurance policy

Passing the checks provided by StormSecure contributes towards obtaining our Data Protection guarantee. Obtaining this means that in addition to ensuring that you have some of the tightest cloud security around in place to protect your web site and hosted data, you also have the reassurance of knowing that in the unlikely event your data is breached and you were investigated by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), Storm Internet will liaise with the ICO and provide all necessary information to help successfully defend you and avoid the imposed fines that can be issued.
