Website & Web Server Security
Modern website security involves encryption, monitoring, fixing, testing, backups, a disaster recovery plan, and standards compliance.
SSL Certificate (HTTPS)
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is an Internet communications protocol that helps protect data transfers between websites and browsers. Without SSL, the passwords or credit card numbers you use for online purchases would be transferred over the Internet in plain text, where they could easily be viewed if intercepted. The protocol renders a URL as HTTPS in the address bar of your browser. We'll worked with you to decide which SSL certificate you need, then install it and update your website to meet the requirements. See our article for more information, To Be Secure or Not Be Secure: Do You Need SSL and HTTPS?
We can scan your website for visible and invisible hacks. There are multiple levels of scanning technologies to check whether your website has been infiltrated in some way.
Monitoring is an ongoing process where we check not only for intrusions, but possible attempts and how this affects performance of your website and database. This not only gives additional peace of mind, but allows for a proactive approach to solve problems early.
If malware is detected, we can remove it, so that hackers don't affect the reputation of your website. In most cases, malware can be easily removed. Advanced malware may require websites be rebuilt from scratch, which we also have experience with.
If your website does get hacked, we have experience in recovering from hacks. This may involve restoring from a backup, cleaning hacked files, or rebuilding from scratch, depending on the situation.
Backups & Disaster Recovery
Regularly backups are the best way to restore your website after a hack or crash. We recommend clients create a disaster recovery plan, which assigns actions, roles, and responsibilities to get your website back online as quickly as possible.
There are both recommended and mandatory compliance requirements, depending on your industry and types of software. We can help you wade through the complexity to see what steps you need to take to comply.
