“We protect your website and customer data with first class website security, the 365 plan.”

02.What we do

Website protection

Purchase protection is now offered on 99% of everyday products, your flat screen TV, your Macbook, right through to your credit and debit cards. So why not protect your website?

Protection against brute force attack should rank extremely high on your online priorities. So high in fact, it should match your very own desire to succeed. Not only are you keeping your website secure, you are in fact protecting your data and your customers data too.

Why is website protection important?

We often get lost in the excitement of owning and launching our own websites, we forget the most important thing – to update and protect them. A hacked website can cause serious damage to your business revenue and reputation. Hackers can steal user information, passwords, install malicious software, and can even distribute malware to your users. Worst case scenario, you may find yourself paying ransomware to hackers just to regain access to your website.

An insecure website could impact your visitors

There are numerous forms of attack your website can be subjected to, while a hacker can often sit in front of your website examining back doors, most attacks are now sent via zombie networks, bombarding your website forms looking for weak spots, hundreds (if not thousands) of times per minute.

If a website has been compromised or infected yet remains unnoticed, the website can very often be blacklisted by Google and other search engines as a dangerous place to direct its visitors. This will normally require that you clean up the website prior to it being available for reindexing. Need more?

DDoS Attack
A distributed denial-of-service, where the attack source has more than one, often thousands of unique IP addresses. Crowding the entry or gateway to your online business, the attack will not let legitimate parties enter, disrupting your normal operations and leaving your website often appearing faulty.
Malware Infection
Malware or malicious software is any software used to gain access to computer systems, gather sensitive information or display unwanted advertising on a website. The advertising can sometimes be of an obscene nature and on full display to your website visitors, often leading to Google blacklisting.
SQL Injection
A technique that exploits a security vulnerability occurring in the database layer of an application. Basically, the database is the headquarters of your website, all customer details, invoicing, purchase history, website pages, images, passwords and important website data is kept in the database.
404 Manipulation
Hacking attempts can sometimes be evidenced by the ‘404 page not found’ error message, while 404 errors can often be down to the website owner removing old data, they are generally the result of blind attacks on web applications and common pages located in their default directories.

Thankfully there are solutions, we offer the 365 plan. With all future enhancements and additions included, its the best plan we have ever offered. Invaluable protection against the darker side of the internet as not all visitors to your website have good intentions. As Benjamin Franklin once said “Distrust and caution are the parents of security”, we take it seriously.

Q. Will I get a padlock next to my website address? A. Yes, software encryption such as SSL security and two factor authorisation are just some of the ways we slow down an attack. We monitor page graffiti using advanced malware scanning, monitor uptime and downtime. We enforce strong passwords across accounts and actively encourage you to use security measures to help you and your business.

The main benefit the 365 plan offers is peace of mind, monitoring day and night with full data backups should anything go wrong – it has you covered.
