November 30th marks Computer Securities Day, a day designed to raise awareness about cyber security issues and empower people to stay safe online and protect their online data. Here at Kobba, we wanted to use this occasion to remind you of the importance of website security and protection through end-to-end encryption.
We can tell you already that if you haven’t taken steps to protect your website, your website is at risk.
Is website security still a big problem?
Considering the advancement of technology and online security nowadays, you might question whether the need to protect against computer threats is even relevant anymore, because your website building package came with some sort of built in protection… right?
I hate to break it to you, but over 30,000 websites get hacked everyday. Wordfence’s Threat Intelligence team reported that within the last week alone, the number of malicious attacks against WordPress website login pages has increased fivefold! Especially considering the recent GoDaddy password breach, where over 1.2 million users were affected, you should be actively prioritising your website security to protect not only your data, but your customers’ data too.
How Kobba ensures the security of your website
WordPress on its own, has little security, which is why at Kobba, we fully integrate the websites we design with the global leaders in security- Wordfence Premium. Wordfence’s endpoint firewall and malware scanner provides the highest level of security against hackers, automated bots and even prevents users from using passwords involved in data breaches, meaning yours and your customer’s data is as safe as it can be through full end-to-end encryption from you to your website visitors.
If you’re willing to invest in home insurance, locks, surveillance cameras and alarms for your house, it makes just as much sense to invest in the security of your website, to protect your data, your business and your income.
Of course, there is more to security of your website on a server side, and you should make sure your hosting offers Firewall & Monitoring, Login Security, Bot Protection, Database Security, Application Isolation, Server’s Operating System’s Security & Patching, Two-Factor Authentication, End-to-End Encryption, Suspicious Device Login Control, User Role Management, Backups and much more…but we will leave this topic for another day (stay tuned!).
