Cloud Security

Iron clad your cloud.

Contrary to the name, the cloud isn’t always a soft and fluffy place. Hackers and phishers are capable of malicious activity that can cause damage reaching well beyond a single event. And they actively seek out vulnerable targets.

Even small, seemingly innocuous gaps in security coverage can put everything at risk including data, customer information, uptime, and potentially your company’s reputation. Protect your data with security services.

Unique Networks

Segregate public, private, and management traffic across distinct physical networks.

Broad Selection

Leverage a variety of hardware and software security options to meet your security requirements.


We offer the latest industry-leading security solutions to help you create a comprehensive strategy.

Create a Multi-layer Security Strategy

Physical and Operational Security

In the cloud, there can be many points of entry or attack for malicious activity. SoftLayer provides a wide range of security options for you to choose from, so you can protect your infrastructure with multiple, overlapping layers of protection customized to your needs and interests.

Network Security

Even the tiniest flaw can compromise your company’s network. SoftLayer’s innovative network architecture and commitment to using the most advanced hardware technologies dramatically minimize your data center and server exposure to outside threats. The network integrates three distinct and redundant architectures into our multi-tiered network topology. Systems are fully accessible to your administrative personnel but safely off-limits to others.

System, Application, and Data Security

Beneath our layers of physical and network protection, your individual computing systems, applications, and data are further safeguarded by several tiers of comprehensive, standard security features. Additional hardware-assisted security options are available on demand, allowing you to customize your enterprise's security profile based on changing requirements or client needs.
