Website Security

Did you know not having your site protected can lead to declines in search engine ranking? Stop hackers and bots in their tracks with EMSC's security stack.

Website security is one of the most important facets of your business. After all, a large percentage of all internet traffic comes from hacking tools, spammers, bots or impersonators, so it’s no wonder that you want your business to be protected. Discover the ins and outs of website security and how it impacts your business.

Why is It Important?

Now more than ever, website security is important. More and more websites are getting hacked as time goes on; Google announced in March 2016 that over 50 million websites worldwide are either infected or malicious. Google also notes that over 80 percent of hacked sites are detected and removed from search results altogether. Talk about a negative impact on your SEO!

Staying protected from hackers is important in protecting your website data and keeping track of all of the traffic that it encounters. If the wrong software inhibits your website, it can quickly gather data and hijack computer resources. In return, your website can be used to retarget website visitors and potential customers.

You’ll also likely notice a drop in revenue in addition to a negative impact on your business’s reputation. This is especially true for WordPress users, as it continues to be the leading infected website CMS.

The Good News? Solutions Exist

There are website security platforms such as Cloudflare that are dedicated to protecting your website against hacks. This is a cloud web application firewall (WAF) that helps mitigate threats as soon as they appear. If there is a specific IP address or port that causes a red flag, these WAF platforms automatically respond to the threats. While these platforms cost money, paying to stay protected is a lot cheaper than trying to clean up a site that has been infected. Plus, the peace of mind knowing that your site is protected is priceless.
