Securing your website is essential especially if you are holding or requesting client information. We install software and initiate security policies on all our websites to help prevent unauthorised use. We also take daily backups of all our managed sites to ensure quick recovery if things do go wrong.
Even if you believe that there is nothing on your website that the bad guys would want, then you’re wrong. In many cases, your website can be used as a zombie distributor of malware, a stepping stone to use your system to attack others.
What is SSL
SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It might sound complex, but it’s really not. SSL Certificates validate your website’s identity, and encrypt the information visitors send to, or receive from, your site. This keeps thieves from spying on any exchange between you and your shoppers.
SSL Certificates inspire trust and show visitors that you value their privacy. An SSL Certificate protects your customers’ sensitive information such as their name, address, password, or credit card number by encrypting the data during transmission from their computer to your web server.
SSL is the standard for web security, and a Server Certificate is required by most merchant account services – you’ll need one if you plan to accept credit cards on your website.
