Web Host NewsDALLAS, TX – The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) has announced that FireHost, a Secure Managed Hosting company, has been named a winner for the 2010 CODiE Awards in the Best Security Solution category. FireHost won this prestigious industry award for its unique, enterprise-grade, virtualized hosting solution. FireHost fills a true void in the market by offering a hosting environment capable of delivering security and compliance-readiness comparable to a dedicated server but with cloud-like scalability, at a very attractive price point for companies of all sizes.

Since combining a secure infrastructure approach with new virtualization technology, FireHost has proven its’ ability to protect susceptible websites from malicious hacker attempts and become the go-to resource for high-profile websites with high-availability needs. In particular, businesses that handle personal and sensitive data online, retailers that engage in Ecommerce, and companies that handle healthcare data, such as EHR SaaS application providers, have found great benefit from FireHost’s affordable, compliance-ready secure managed hosting options. Companies like Mitnick Security (Kevin Mitnick), The Daily Caller, and The National Breast Cancer Foundation have found shelter from malicious hacker attempts by making FireHost their secure web hosting home.
