A website security audit scans your website for potential or existing weaknesses that may leave your website vulnerable to potential hacks or online attacks. This audit covers the entire infrastructure of your website including server settings, core software, themes, plugins, SSL connection and general configurations.
Once this audit has been conducted, the next step is to identify which areas of your website need to be improved and what vulnerabilities exist. Once these vulnerabilities have been identified, we get to work on closing these loopholes and improving the security of your website.
It’s recommended that you conduct regular security audits on your website as online dangers are constantly evolving.
An SSL certificate is a vital part of your website’s security. SSL (secure socket layer) is a technology that ensures that the data being transferred between your website and its users is encrypted and impossible to read if intercepted. You can see which websites have implemented SSL security through what’s called an SSL certificate.
This certificate becomes known to the user when a website uses https:// instead of http://. Adding HTTPS to your website not only makes it more secure, but some browsers will not allow users to visit websites that do not implement it, meaning fewer people will visit a site they are not sure is secure. If you are having trouble with your website’s security or would like to add HTTPS and an SSL certificate to your website, get in touch with our team.
The most effective way to approach your website’s security is to be proactive rather than reactive. This means scanning your website for vulnerabilities before they are exploited.
We use numerous techniques to identify existing and potential vulnerabilities on your website, by mimicking attacks and hacks to ensure your website, its data & your users’ data is safe and secure from online threats. This is particularly important if your website processes payments or stores sensitive data.
It’s recommended you conduct regular website scans to identify potential vulnerabilities as online threats are constantly evolving and finding new ways to conduct their attacks.
