Is Your Website Scanned for Security Vulnerabilities?
Introduction to Website Security
We take website security seriously. Even though we use industry-leading software, the popularity of that software naturally opens it up to attacks.
Developers respond by patching security issues, as well as building out more features for their software. But are all developers on top of this?
What Do Our Security Scans Include?
We regularly scan our clients’ websites against a database of software security vulnerabilities.
These sites are also scanned for files infected with malware.
Next, our sites are scanned against various Web Trust databases:
- Google Safe Browsing
- Norton Safe Web
- Phish Tank
- Opera Browser
- Sucuri Malware Labs
- SpamHaus DBL
- Yandex (via Sophos)
How Can I Help You?
As a Webmaster, my job is to:
- Review these security reports.
- Keep your website’s software (WordPress, plugins, themes, etc) up-to-date.
- Purge anything outdated or insecure.
- Clean any malware that pops up.
As we’ve seen in the news, even the largest corporations get hacked. Security attacks will come, but having several layers of defense and a dedicated Webmaster taking care of your site will keep your website running and generating business for you! Contact me to see if we are a good fit.
