Shared responsibility model

Who is responsible for what?

With our Managed Services (Managed Infrastructure, Managed AWS, Managed Magento and Managed GitLab), Sysbee is responsible for keeping the servers up and running and ensuring the infrastructure works properly. The customer, on the other hand, is responsible for the applications, databases and any other services installed on the servers.

Sysbee’s responsibility

The infrastructure leased to the customer is Sysbee’s responsibility. This infrastructure is composed of the hardware, software, networking, and facilities that run Sysbee Services. Sysbee is responsible for the servers, both physical and virtual (monitoring, performance, updates and regular maintenance), as well as the network used by those servers.

Customer’s responsibility

The customer assumes responsibility and management of the web applications running on the provided servers, including keeping the said application up to date, ensuring there are no security issues (malware, access, etc.), troubleshooting issues related to third-party apps used by the application, etc.

Summary

Sysbee is responsible for patching and fixing flaws within the infrastructure, but customers are responsible for patching their applications. Similarly, Sysbee maintains the configuration of its infrastructure devices, but a customer is responsible for configuring their own databases and applications. And lastly, Sysbee trains Sysbee employees, but a customer must train their own employees.
