Website Security

Peace of Mind

shockedSite owners spend a lot of time and money crafting their websites to impress and generate contact from their site visitors. Their sites are generally informational, responsive (hopefully), and they want the site to do what it’s supposed to do – impress site visitors and entice them to make contact.

Site owners shouldn’t have to worry about their websites security. In fact, most business owners know very little about online security and what is necessary to keep a site protected.

This is where we come in.

Typically, when an unsecured site has been accessed and compromised, it’s usually well after the unauthorized access has taken place. Meaning, it could be weeks or even months before site owners first detect anything odd about their site.

We can help protect your WordPress website before hackers try to attempt to gain access to your site.

Think of your website as your home. Would you ever go to sleep at night without locking the doors? Do you feel safe when you forget to set the alarm system? If you are like the average person, your make sure your doors are locked and alarm is usually turned on too.

Well, securing your website isn’t much different. The more difficult we make it for hackers to try and gain access to a site, the more likely they’ll move on to an easier target.  We lock the front door and turn on the alarm ( so to speak).

It’s what we do day-in and day-out.

We Protect Your Reputation

Your website isn’t the only thing that can be compromised if hackers gain access to your site. When a site becomes compromised, hackers may try several things.

  • A site can be severely damaged and not work very well
  • They can send it offline
  • They can install web pages that contain adult content
  • Web pages have been found with links to bad websites
  • They can also install virus distribution
  • Use your email to send out heinous content
  • Create web pages to distribute negative propaganda
  • and much more

If your site contains any of the above, your reputation can be severely tarnished!
