Cloud Security

Cloud security is top of mind in the Green House Data IaaS environment. A combination of standards, controls, diligent monitoring, and encryption keep your data safe. 

Cloud Security Simplified

Through highly integrated infrastructure controls and policies, the gBlock® Cloud environment simplifies the process of scanning, identifying threats, and blocking attacks while complementing existing enterprise security measures. Your VMware cloud is engineered to protect against data loss, data leakage, and data breaches. Additional protection from internet content security and cloud computing security applications can be further integrated into any gBlock Cloud.

The Green House Data team understands software systems and have been rock-solid in supporting our customers. It's great to work with true professionals.

Standard Cloud Security

Green House Data includes many security features in every cloud contract free of charge, including robust user monitoring tools. Unlike commodity clouds, the gBlock Cloud is architected to meet your organization's specific security requirements and is backed by 24/7/365 live customer service.

cloud security responsibilities: user vs. provider

Green House Data manages and secures more of the cloud stack than other cloud service providers.


The gBlock Cloud platform offers strong data security measures, including VMware vShield Endpoint, which strengthens virtualization security through enhanced endpoint protection.

Adaptive Security: Complete network segmentation ensures that all data is protected whether in transit or at rest. 

Simplified Management: Cloud environments are managed at all levels (host, network, application, data, and endpoint) via a single comprehensive framework.

Leverage Existing Security Policies: vShield works seamlessly with existing enterprise IT security measures through Representational State Transfer (REST) APIs, including existing third-party anti-virus and anti-malware applications.

Available Encryption: At-rest and in-transfer encryption are available for all cloud environments.


Green House Data uses a combination of best-in-class hardware security measures including dedicated Cisco firewalls and Fortigate Unified Threat Management for additional security control.


The core of cloud security is governance. This includes regular audits, a risk management program, and maintaining system updates. 


Each Green House Data employee goes through a detailed background check, and every person with access to the data center floor is audited on a quarterly basis.


Green House Data is an SSAE 18 (SOC 1 and 2) compliant data center and offers a HIPAA multi-tenant cloud that follows stringent internal controls. We can also help meet regulatory standards like Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), PCI, CJIS, and Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB).


Cloud infrastructure is built on a fully redundant network, storage, and server architecture.

If you need tighter controls due to industry or governmental requirements, let us know. Private cloud options are available, too.
