Systems software upgrades, problem tracking and resolution

Security issues and their resolution will be tracked by us as the central point of contact with the Information Security Office (ISO). Should ISO determine that your site has been compromised or otherwise presents a risk to others at Yale or on the Internet in general, your site will be blocked by ISO.

Increased quantities of service: If the client simply needs more storage or more shell accounts we can scale the resources accordingly at incremental costs. For more additional information on costs and charges for this service, please refer to the "Costs" section of this website.

Custom services: ITS may be able to provide additional services in many areas (content management systems, blogs, scripting, database support, web design and maintenance). By their nature these services require a custom consultation and a specific price quote for your needs.
