Security has always been one of Funio’s priorities, and we are always looking for ways to improve our applications and processes to provide more security to our clients.
In August, we proceeded to an upgrade of the Apache service on our web servers to offer improved security for clients using SSL certificates. No worries, you won’t have to change or do anything on your account. Also, please note that this upgrade only concerns clients with the new Funio web hosting plans. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you would be interested in migrating!
We ran a test with SSLLabs, a leader in SSL security audit, and are happy to announce that Funio’s servers were given an A.
In addition, our servers now support Perfect Forward Secrecy. What is it? It is a cryptography property that ensures the security of past communications of a server, even if hackers discovered the private key. In other words, it means that the compromise of one message can’t lead to the compromise of others.
Also, as a result of the upgrade, please note that the new SSL encryption does not allow us to support Windows XP anymore.
Don’t hesitate to contact us for more information!
