What’s Website Security?
Cyber attacks are the greatest threat to any website, anywhere at any time. Website Security provides easy-to-use tools to help protect your site from cyber attacks. Your website is the center of your business, your brand, and all the amazing things you’re bringing to the world online, so it deserves broad protection with all the tools you need to protect your business, reputation, finances, and customers online.
You will need the following security measures to protect your website:
– SSL Certificate
You will first need an SSL certificate that will protect the data collected by your website as it gets transferred from your website to a server. This is extremely important because popular search engines and browsers are currently labeling websites without SSL as “insecure”. That indeed makes your visitors suspect your website.
– Firewall Protection
A Firewall is another key component for web security as it can stop automated attacks that usually target lesser-known websites. These attacks are executed by programs capable of automatically looking for vulnerabilities that are used as points of entry to execute an attack on that particular website.
– Software Updates
Your operating system manages all the functionality on your computer, it can be a vulnerable target for hackers. While Operating systems have many built-in functions to help prevent attacks, cybercriminals constantly come up with new tricks. That’s why operating system providers regularly offer operating system updates: To keep on top of changing threats from cybercriminals.
If you don’t update your OS, you leave yourself vulnerable to losing your information or compromising access to key accounts. That can cost you your identity, your information, and even money.
Updating your software is one of the simplest ways to foil cybercriminals attempting to steal your information.
– Website Scanner
If you are very late in discovering a cyberattack performed on your website, then the cost to recover from this attack will only increase. To prevent such a situation, you will need a good website scanner capable of detecting vulnerabilities, malware, and several other security issues. A website scanner will not only remove known malware but will also look for threats on a regular basis and instantly alert you if anything gets detected, thus reducing the amount of damage it can do to your website.
