How to find web hosting that meets my requirements?

Can anybody recommend a hosting service where security is paramount? We are looking for a VPS or dedicated service that offers hardware based firewalls (i.e. Juniper, Sonicwall), a hardened Linux based environment, software based intrusion prevention services (minimum cfs, mod_sec), and no latency issues. C-Panel based environment preferred. The host should provide the initial server- and security setup, including disabling all unnecessary services, we will rebuild all websites.

Surely if security is paramount then you can't use a VPS or managed service? –  JamesRyan Apr 21 '11 at 15:20

I use hostgator, it's just a very good and big hosting service.
So they probalby have very good security too...

It's also very important to make your site itself secure.

Being big does not automatically translate in being secure. Minimum security includes ConfigServer Firewall (csf), mod_sec, disabling unnecessary services, etc. We have this now and we have increased default security settings to high, blocked access to the sites on the country-level for some rouge states, enabled temporary-to-permanent-blocking - you name it. We have also minimized the number of plug-ins in WP and disabled services. Nevertheless, we see 5 - 20 attacks per day, including SQL_injection attacks. They result in latency issues forcing us to restart the VPS 2-3 times per day. –  Emma Apr 21 '11 at 18:13
