“One size does not fit all" as every business is different. We have a complete understanding and information about the various tools, software, and technology available globally and pick up the more appropriate ones for our clients on a case-to-case basis. Here we present the six fundamental steps to protect your website from hackers, malware and viruses. These are the primary measures but not exhaustive.
Install a Firewall
Usually, a hacker always creates a bot that sniffs out vulnerable sites and programmed to carry out particular malicious actions. Once you install a firewall on your website, it identifies malicious requests. Once the firewall detects a malicious request or specifies an IP address that seems evil, the request gets blocked instead of being processed. The firewall may not be 100% secure, but it typically stops most of the malware.
Never Change the firewall setting.
Although the firewall permits you to configure the setting, we recommend you to stay away as the firewall rules are crafted after exhaustive research and time tested performance on malware removal.
Work out on a Strong Password Policy
We tend to create easy passwords and use them in multiple places online. Hackers generate a list of such passwords called rainbow tables, and they always create larger tables to use as a dictionary of sorts. Using these tables, they launch an attack known as a 'dictionary attack'. Therefore we recommend all our customers to use strong passwords online.
Install SSL On Your Site
SSL security protocol that encrypts all communication to and from a website. By installing it on your site, you can be rest assured that even if a hacker intercepts data from the website, they'll never be able to do anything.
Monitor The Site Often
Keep a silent check on the admin user. Remove periodically the users who are not active and
make sure no comprise is made with the site. Create Activity logs that will tell you what is happening on your site, and you can then evaluate them accordingly. Always take regular
backups so that you can restore your website in the event of a cyber-attack.
