Private Hosting

Disciple.Tools can be deployed in a private cloud environment where users must use zero trust security to access the system. This removes the Disciple.Tools login interface from the public Internet as an additional security precaution for your teams. In this configuration, your users' DNS queries to the Disciple.Tools instance are not visible regionally, and the Disciple.Tools instance itself is not on the public Internet where any underlying WordPress or other zero day vulnerabilities may be exposed.

Disciple.Tools has partnered with a low-cost, off-the-shelf zero trust provider who is supported by our hosting partners. Please Contact Us to learn more.
