Leaders in technology: Investis partners recognised as top providers
Investis’ investment in technology and infrastructure has been significant since our inception in 2000. As the digital communication partner to more than 2000 clients worldwide, our technology needs to surpass the demands of the information age – multi-channel publishing, social media monitoring, analytics, reputation management, cyber security – providing a fast and robust solution for client needs big and small. We can’t do this alone, so we have selected our partners with care to ensure they improve the service we provide. This is why Investis uses market-leading technology – be it the content management system (CMS), cloud hosting or security.
Best-in-class CMS – Sitecore rated as leading CMS in recent 2016 Q3 Gartner Report
At the core of our technology is our CMS myInvestis Sitecore. Investis is a Platinum Partner of Sitecore, which has been ranked as one of the world’s best CMSs by both Forrester and Gartner. In fact, Sitecore has achieved the highest placement for its ability to execute in the leaders’ quadrant – for the second year in a row. As Sitecore continues to enhance and upgrade its technology, we continue to upgrade our myInvestis platform to surface the most relevant and impactful functionality for our users.
Choice of flexible and dependable open source CMS in Drupal
Our open source solution – myInvestis Drupal (MID), utilising Drupal 8, is increasingly being seen as the open source CMS of choice. Drupal is also referenced in the Gartner report, receiving Magic Quadrant appreciation through its commercial sponsor Acquia.
We have recently launched a number of Drupal 8 websites on our platform and are increasing our Drupal development resource all the time.
Hosting and security – continued investment in market-leading vendors
The technology that supports our best-in-class CMS platforms needs to measure up too. Investis provides a fully managed and globally distributed hosting infrastructure. Availability, scalability, performance and security are critically important to safeguard our platform and clients’ digital assets. Company websites are often the target of hackers and cyber attacks, and any lapse in security can prove to be very expensive both financially and from a reputation point of view.
Our managed security service provider (MSSP), Alert Logic, understands and mitigates the risks of this threat landscape well. Our AWS-hosted digital platform is monitored and protected by Alert Logic’s award-winning mitigation mechanism named leader in “The Forrester Wave: Managed Security Services Providers, North America, Q3 2016”.
Alert Logic’s security solution was the top-ranked vendor in the Current Offering category and in two sub-criteria within the category: Delivery capability – User interface and integration; and Customer experience.
Investis’ continued long-term investment in cyber security technology, processes and employee education enables us to offer many layers of security to keep client data safe and secure. This is even more relevant now in the wake of evolving data laws such as GDPR, increased cybercrime and the estimated $400bn global cost of cyber-attacks
Our advanced website security partner Incapsula provides WAF and DDoS (Layer 7) protection, as well as infrastructure and DDoS (Layer 3 and 4) protection. Supported by a robust content delivery network (CDN) and enterprise-grade web application firewall, this service also protects against attacks seeking to exploit application vulnerabilities, while improving connectivity and accelerating content delivery.
Considering that traditional infrastructure systems are more vulnerable and susceptible to threats, Investis moved to the cloud, selecting Amazon Web Services (AWS). Our cloud IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) provider AWS has been named a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Cloud IaaS, scoring a 92% rating. AWS was placed in the leaders’ quadrant for the sixth consecutive year and recognised for “both the furthest completeness of vision and the highest ability to execute.”
Companies that face the highest levels of cyber security risks choose Investis to host their digital communications estates. Our systems and processes have been vetted and approved by their security specialists using rigorous supplier acceptance criteria. With advanced ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 accreditation our own internal cyber security committee is extremely vigilant and proactive to ensure our approach to cyber security keeps pace with the ever-evolving threats.
