That's all good advice, Ron, but this isn't for our own in-house use.  
We're looking to become one of those companies which serve the "58% of 
companies with fewer than 500 employees".  Currently, we produce a 
respectable desktop payroll product which we're looking to evolve into a 
web app.

Eventually, we'll have to run our own data center, but during our start-up 
phase, we are looking into the viability of using a host.

Which brings me back to the original question: what are the "right 
questions" to be asking if I'm looking for maximum security and maximum
