Regular Website Security Scans
When did you last scan your website?
Infected websites can cause havoc for website owners and visitors alike. There are thousands of hacking attacks on websites every day so it makes sense to run regular scans to detect and remove any malicious code that may have been installed on your website.
Our website maintenance packages all include regular website security scans which will detect the most common malware and malicious code which can then be tackled quickly to minimise disruption and damage.
Beef up your website security and don’t be a target!
Hackers are constantly seeking opportunities to hack into websites which can then be used as a vehicle to redirect traffic (your website visitors) to websites laden with malicious code. They can also send out spam emails from your mail server (which can result in your domain being added to a blacklist resulting in genuine email not being delivered) and spread viruses from your website which can cause serious trust issues for your business. They can inject ads onto your website which can be linked to illegal or spammy content or they may take your website down and ask for a ransom from you for it to be restored resulting in a loss of business and potentially a loss of money if you pay up.
Being pro-active in keeping your website code up to date and performing regular security scans is one way of helping to protect your website from hackers reducing potential costs and headaches in the future.
