Securing Your Website

Securing Your Website

Unless you’re a nerd, website security is probably not a topic you think about on a daily basis.  If you have a presence on the web, you want to make sure your site is up and running, looks great, functions perfectly, and provides your customers with a great experience.  All of those things are really important.  But website security is that lingering topic, always hovering in the background, that you hope you never, ever have to deal with.  

There’s good news and bad news when it comes to security and hackers.  Let’s start with the bad news, so we can end on a positive note.

Here’s the Bad News:

If you have a website, there’s a really good chance your site will endure a hack attempt at some point.  These folks are good, and no website is off limits to their hijacking attempts.  There’s lots of different numbers out there when it comes to hacking, but statistics indicate that up to 50,000 (that’s not a typo) sites are hacked every day!  The trick is staying two steps ahead of hackers.  And that’s where the good news comes into play.

Here’s the Good News:

We don’t like hackers.  In fact, we despise them.  So we’re really excited to announce a new product offering that will keep these hackers out of your website, and allow you to keep doing what you love, rather than worry about website security.  When you sign up for our security package, here’s what you’ll enjoy:

  • Security Evaluation: We’ll secure and harden your website, using the most up-to-date practices in the industry.
  • 24/7 Monitoring: Your website will be monitored 24/7 for any updates, malware, and security related issues.  If something is detected, it’ll be handled immediately.
  • Daily Updates: Updating your website is a drag.  We get it.  We’ll push any updates to your website within 24 hours.  You worry about running your business, and we’ll worry about your website.
  • Backups: And just in case, we’ll run daily backups of your site.  These backups are stored off-site, and we hang on to them for 30 days.

Okay, so enough with the sales pitch.  The point is, in our admittedly biased opinion, securing your website can’t be an optional item.  The time, energy, and expense poured into rescuing a hijacked site can easily reach five figures.  It’s not happened to any of our clients, but there’s plenty of those stories out there.
