The Vigilant Solutions hosted server houses over 1.4 billion license plate reads, and grows at roughly 50 million reads each month, as of September 2013. This server and the services for hosting are managed by Verio, a wholly owned subsidiary of NTT Communications, and a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner. Certified ISO 9001:2008 and compliant with SAS70 Type II, Verio is recognized as a world leader in hosted data and many Federal agencies and Fortune 500 companies use the services of Verio. The data center itself is located just outside of Washington, DC, where Verio is headquartered. The data center itself features redundant power sources, redundant fiber connectivity, redundant disk arrays, environmental monitoring, secure access control, physical escorts for onsite visitors, multiple diesel fuel backup generators, active fire prevention and suppression, and onsite system administrators and engineers.
Due to sensitivities around LPR data, the entire network is secured by a Cisco router with firewall firmware compliant with PCI, HIPAA, and SOX IT governance requirements. The Cisco firmware is also configured with Intrusion Protection Services offering deep packet inspection of all inbound traffic.
