One of our websites was attacked yesterday by an individual who was IP hopping to mask their identity in an attempt to hack into our site. They attacked from intermediate locations including Germany, Hungary, Italy, Ukraine, Czech Republic, France and Netherlands. Our PMR service blocked each attack, more than 30 throughout the day, and the hacker failed to damage our website.
As hackers develop more advanced automatic hacking techniques website security needs to become an increasingly important part of your overall web strategy. After all, what good is it to have a great website if it’s destroyed by hackers? Exploited websites damage your reputation with customers and can diminish your search engine rankings and SEO efforts.
We can’t prevent attackers from finding your website, but we can protect and monitor it. And make sure that they will move on to an easier target. Most people don’t even know when their site is under attack, or when a breach takes place. Our PMR service includes all the necessary preventative measures, plus we have eyes on the situation with real-time firewalling and instant alerts.
