How do I select the root level template
We default the top level site to the Team Site Template.  We had an overwhelming number of requests for this because users were picking one of the other 7 templates (which do not display all of the functionality of SharePoint) and were dissatisfied.

When you create a sub site, you will be prompted to select a template.  You can use one of the 8 provided by us, or at the root level, upload/create your own.  Just add your template to the root level template catalog and it will in the list of available templates when you create your sub site.  For example:  http://mysite.sharepoint.apptix.net will be your home page with a link to your subsite http://mysite.sharepoint.apptix.net/marketing.  You can even add a Marketing link to the top nav bar of your home site through FrontPage.

What security processes are in place?
Our Information Security Program is based on the International Standards Organization’s Code of Practice for Information Security Management (ISO17799).  Technical security measures, such as Cisco Pix, provide firewall protection, intrusion detection, and web-publishing rules.  The Apptix software assurance team tests and deploys software updates in order to maintain the highest level of security and software reliability.  Software hot-fixes and service packs are tested and deployed based on their priority and level of risk. Security related hot-fixes are rapidly deployed into the environment to address current threats.  A comprehensive software validation activity ensures software stability through regression testing prior to deployment.

Finally, Microsoft Gold Certified operations ensure that the proper change management and configuration management procedures are always followed.
