The worst thing about malware is that it could be on your website for months without you even noticing. You need to be vigilant, proactive, and check regularly for malware and known vulnerabilities. That’s where our Security Check comes in.
We perform a Vulnerability scan on a daily basis to bring you real time information about what plugins are vulnerable so you can act accordingly, or we act on your behalf.
A website firewall can block all malicious traffic before it even reaches your website:
DNS Level Firewall – This firewall route your website traffic through cloud proxy servers. This allows them to only send genuine traffic to your web server. More info.
Website Level Firewall – These firewall plugins examine the traffic once it reaches your server but before loading most website scripts. More info.
Most often, websites by default allow users to try to login as many time as they want. This leaves your website vulnerable to brute force attacks. Hackers try to crack passwords by trying to login with different combinations.
This can be easily fixed by limiting the failed login attempts a user can make. If you’re using the web application firewall mentioned earlier, then this is automatically taken care of.
Two-factor authentication technique requires users to log in by using a two-step authentication method. The first one is the username and password, and the second step requires you to authenticate using a separate device or app.
Protect your images from off-site linking. For example an external website using your images and videos for your servers.
and that’s why we provide free hack fixes for all clients.
Before we dive into some security features, let’s start with an example. Say you buy a new house. This exciting new investment requires a hefty down-payment you’re probably not used to spending. And, of course, you’re hit with inspection fees prior to buying. Then comes the mortgage and insurance payments, all of which come straight out of your pocket.
They say purchasing real estate is one of the best investments you can make, but that investment is a costly one. For such a high-value investment (and something that could make you big bucks in the future,) would you not want to protect it to the best of your ability?
That’s why you buy insurance and consider setting up an alarm system or some security cameras. Many experts suggest at least placing a security system sign on your door, to scare away those who don’t want to risk it. All of this security is meant to protect the initial investment, along with the potential for that investment in the future.
And you should think the same way when it comes to your website.
Here are some examples of website security:
