How we protect your site
from hackers and malware

In an ever-changing digital world, where cyber threats evolve rapidly, website security has become a top priority. It’s not just a matter of protecting sensitive data; it is also a question of keeping the company’s reputation and customer trust intact. An effective web security strategy not only defends against attacks, but also helps build a safer online environment for everyone.

Understanding the risk: Common types of web attacks

Cyberattacks can take many forms, each with its own challenges and defense strategies. Here are some of the most common:

  • Phishing: These attacks, often via fraudulent emails, aim to trick users into obtaining sensitive data. They are insidious because they exploit the user’s trust.
  • DDoS Attacks: A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack aims to overload a website with fictitious traffic, making it inaccessible to legitimate visitors. This can cause significant disruptions and loss of revenue.
  • SQL Injection: Hackers exploit vulnerabilities to inject malicious code into a database. This can lead to the loss or theft of sensitive data.
  • Cross-Site Scripting (XSS): Here, attackers insert malicious scripts into web pages, which are then executed by other users, putting their security at risk.

Website security best practices

To effectively protect your website, it is crucial to take a holistic approach:

  • Using HTTPS: HTTPS is not just a protocol; it is the basis of website security. It encrypts data between the site and the user, protecting sensitive information from prying eyes.
  • Regular Updates: Cybercriminals often exploit known vulnerabilities. Keeping your CMS, plugins, and scripts updated is essential to closing these security holes.
  • Strong Passwords and Access Management: Implementing strong password policies and regularly changing login credentials are critical steps. It’s also crucial to limit access to sensitive parts of your website to only necessary personnel.

Security tools and technologies

Technology plays a crucial role in website security:

  • PHP ModSecurity: A technology used by modern hosting companies to prevent attacks on the server from vulnerable PHP scripts.
  • Security Scanning and Monitoring Tools: Security scanning and monitoring tools help detect vulnerabilities and suspicious activities. These tools can often identify and mitigate problems before they become critical.

Can you have an easier password to remember?

The correct password is the first step in protecting yourself on the internet and its strength does not only depend on the number of characters it is made up of but also on other elements:
