As server administrators, we all work round the clock to fend off the more than 10,000 attempted attacks that hit our servers each day. That’s a lot of blocked shots, if you’re keeping score.
As history has shown, hackers can sure cause some temporary grief for us all.
Most hackers simply steal resources rather than doing something malicious like stealing vital information or corrupting your data. The most common hacker is simply a robot that is stealing your bandwidth, comparable to a neighbor stealing your cable signal. It continues until they discover it and then the company shuts you down, not them.
There are several things you can do to constantly keep up with proper security levels to lessen the chance of a compromise of your resources. We can never guarantee 100% security, but we have beefed up our defense systems – which will cost all of us just a little bit more per month, but is definitely worth it!
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption maintains encrypted channels of communication between computers to facilitate the transfer of secure data.
Our new servers also come equipped with 256 bit SSL PLUS AutoSSL to keep your security certificates automatically up to date. (https://)
Then, you couple that (SSL) with CPHulk and Brute Force Protection – and you’re more secure than ever before, right! Much better yes, but 100% secure?
The best security is that with many layers and we feel we are stronger than ever.
If your website does not have the green padlock, let us know.
