Security & Technology Statement

The Vendor Center's Commitment to Security

  • The Vendor Center (TVC) uses firewall systems and intrusion detection software to protect our systems.
  • VC hosting services operate from three state-of-the art data centers in Chicago, Atlanta and Los Angeles. The highly secure, redundant infrastructure of our data centers protects your servers and web environment, and ensures you are up and running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • e build information security right into our systems and networks using internationally recognized security standards, regulations, and industry-based best practices.
  • We employ strong authentication controls.
  • We require our employees to take information security awareness training and to apply this training to their job every day.
Internet Connection:
  • The Vendor Center is available with a blazing 1 Gigabit Ethernet feed. Each of our three data centers has at least eight Gigs of available Internet connectivity delivered via diverse entry facilities, provided by two separate Local Loop providers, and connected to multiple, tier 1 IP Transit Backbone Providers.
Backup Schedule:
  • The site is backed up every 24 hours. Our triple-redundant server configuration allows for remote backups to ensure the site content and database is always secure.
Server Network:
  • TVC uses one of the fastest and most reliable IP networks in the world. Our 10GB/OC192 network architecture provides a superior IT platform to support online communications and new technology innovations.
Backup Power Systems:
  • We do not rely upon the local power grid to guarantee uptime. Our data centers' on-site, diesel-powered generators and centralized Uninterruptible Power Systems (UPS) provide power conditioning and ensure uninterrupted dedicated hosting data center operation.

  • We do not provide any personally identifiable information we gather or develop about our visitors to any third parties for any purpose.
