Today, people expect a web site to be interactive, adaptable, informative, and easy to read on any device. The old design principle
of static content is no longer acceptable. The combination of easily updated content and user interaction means that your business needs
a Web Application, not just a site.
Key factors in our products
Web data security is more important now than ever. We do that!
We host sites on a hardened server, or can custom engineer a secure server for you. All web access uses secure encryption to eliminate the risk of outsiders snooping on data. And we add extra features to ensure user access is private.
We are obsessed with speed. Web pages that load almost instantly? We do that!
There is a lot more to online access than just looks. You want your staff or your customers to have extremely fast access, with no lag or delay. Our goal is 200 page requests per second per server, to allow more users and less waiting.
Your web site should be able to expand, all the way up to millions of users. We do that!
Our site designs run efficiently on a single server, but can easily scale up to dedicated database and web servers as required.
We can also engineer distributed systems, with multiple servers at different geographic locations.
Your web site should be unique to your needs. We do that!
Our development system allows you to plug-in or build extra functionality without reinventing the wheel.
Our visual portion is implemented as a Theme, so you can have complete control over the appearance portion.
Security on a Web Application is not something that can be added later. In order to be effective, Security must be built in to the design.
Primarily, the server itself must be "hardened", which means it can't be hacked into, and only responds to external requests that are under our control.
A web server must respond to client requests from all over the world, and must be smart enough to only respond to well formed requests. It must safely ignore anything that falls outside of normal web requests, and it must do so quickly enough to avoid getting swamped by fake requests (DDOS).
Since your application is using a database to store information and do such basic tasks as confirming user authentication, the database must not be directly accessible from outside of the server. This way nobody can read, delete, or add data to the database other than through the application itself.
