Is your website free from hackers and malware?
These days there are many risks involved with running a website online, particularly if you are doing E-commerce transactions on your site. Hackers can and will do whatever it takes to try and gain access to your websites files to inject malicious code, or to try and intercept sensitive data transfers.
Keeping your website secure should be your highest priority, a hacked website could cause you to loose valuable business. Third party script based websites like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla are by their nature slightly more susceptible to hacking attempts. There are many measures that can be taken to ensure your website is as secure as possible, however SiteLock Security for Small Business adds another layer of security for your site.
What is malware?
Malware is basically software that is created with the intention to harm, damage or disable computers. Malware is short for Malicious Software. Malware comes in many forms including viruses, worms and trojans. Malware is installed on your computer or website without your consent.
