Malware Removal Services
Web security is a relative term that can be categorized into two fields of thought. Namely: internal web security and public web security.
The dynamic and powerful nature of web based applications grows in increasing complexity as the website’s owners offer more and more digital services and products to their customers. A website is a digital asset to individuals and businesses around the globe. Digital assets are what hackers relish; financial information, personal identities, network resources and any other sources of data offers lucrative incentives for hacking organizations around the world. These ill-mannered people want your data, and they will write malicious scripts that will jeopardize your websites infrastructure. If malicious software is left unattended, your business can experience damaging financial and time set-backs; or worse, unrecoverable website preaches leading to organization termination.
Word Defense believes everyone in the world has a right to build any web based service, product, blog or offering uninhibited by computer viruses, worms, trojan horses, ransomware,spyware, adware, scareware, and other malicious programs.
Here is a short list of functions inherently found in a secure website. This is rarely, if ever, found in the increasingly expanding world of the Web.
- Few network resources with financial value
- The company or website is not controversial or visible online
- A complex network built with tight permissions
- Web servers are adequately patched and up-to-date
- Website code written with high standards
What about in-house and outsourced IT departments?
Web based security has evolved into a stand alone industry inside the Internet field. The pervasiveness of malicious scripts and the always increasing points of entry into your network takes years of experience to understand, let alone troubleshoot, remove and protect.
As contractors and in-house members build services and products over your website, the prevalence of unique coding languages adds even more potential points of entry to hackers to exploit.
The solution to web based security is constant scanning, removal and robust infrastructure protection of malicious scripts. Word Defense has built a system perfectly suited to address these problems and more.
Common myths associated with website security:
There is no one setting or switch which will secure a website. As websites grow in functionalities and outreach, so does the necessary security measures to fully protect and secure that website. Bigger websites introduce more ports, networks, applications and loop holes for hackers to upload malicious scripts.
Each service, application and open port on your server adds more and more layers of settings. IT departments around the globe are being constrained by their organizations budgets leaving important security features unattended. If your website gets hacked, black listed, or damaged, this could spell the end of your web based business depending on the severity and malicious intent of the hacker. We’ve seen it happen many times.
