Comprehensive Security

An estimated 30,000 websites are hacked daily.  Most website owners don't even realize their website is hacked.  Like medical health, it is easier and less costly to act proactively than reactively. 

When it comes to providing quality services from webClinic Pro, security comes first. The approach with each of the following security issues is to pay close attention to the current trends and threats in the industry and address each one with the latest technology and expertise. Continue reading to learn more about each of the webClinic Pro security features.

Encryption

When you visit a website, information passes from your computer to a site. Most of the data (or traffic) moving across the internet is readable. Therefore, data is encrypted to prevent hackers from watching your information. If you see a lock in your browser's address bar, the information to and from your computer to this website is encrypted.

Website encryption isn’t just about security though; it affects your website’s search engine ranking too. Google is so committed to this that they provide a page ranking boost for sites that implement encryption. Since August of 2014, Google has encouraged website administrators to encrypt their entire websites to increase security. Google isn’t the only industry leader that is promoting “forced HTTPS.” Many other internet and security companies are making a move and encouraging others as well.

At webClinic Pro, we encrypt all of our customers' websites to ensure your privacy and safety. If you would like to learn more about encryption, we encourage you to read our blog article "Is Your Website Encrypted? It Should Be.

Filtering

To keep your body healthy, you watch what you eat and drink. Similarly, websites require proper filtering using a web application firewall. Information travels to your website as a request, which the web application firewall then reviews. Our web application firewall filters dangerous requests and blocks them to keep your site safe.

Have you heard the story about the two doctors that were out for a walk along a forested trail?  A bear jumps out of a bush and starts chasing two doctors. They both start running for their lives, but then one of them stops to put on his running shoes. His friends say, "What are you doing? You can't outrun a bear!" His friend replies, "I don't have to outrun the bear; I only have to outrun you!"  Website security is similar to this in that you can't stop the hackers from attacking, but you can outrun your competition.

We don't expect that encryption and filtering alone will stop all attacks. No solution is completely bulletproof. However, our goal is to make it so complicated that it is no longer worth the effort for an attacker to pursue you.

Malware Scanning/Removal

Beyond Scanning & Cleaning

We include Malware scanning and cleaning in our SecureOne hosting package. We don't offer this service separately because they don't work independently.  Cleaning an infected website does not prevent future infection.  Secure hosting is required to keep a site clean the website otherwise the website will get compromised again.  If you are looking for a quick fix webClinic Pro isn't the right solution.  If you are looking for a comprehensive solution that will keep your website secure and allow you to sleep well at night, then we are the company for you.

Protect Your Investment

"Google blacklists 10,000 sites per day." - Forbes

Small business owners invest a considerable amount of money into building and marketing their websites.  They understand that their website is critical to driving sales and revenue.  Not protecting your website investment by implementing proper security can significantly impact your business.  Infected websites with malware get blacklist by search engines.  Google blacklists 10,000 sites per day. If your website is blacklisted, it is one of the worst things that can happen to your website.  Blacklisted websites lose around 95% of their site traffic as a result of the Big Red Warning page.  Ignoring website security can destroy your website marketing efforts and cost your business significantly.

Protect Your Users

Malware not only affects you but your users.  If you have an infected with malware, it can infect every user that comes to your website. A small clothing store wouldn't leave exposed electrical wires laying around that could harm their patrons.  It's irresponsible to ignore a hazard as much as rendering a website unprotected.  However, it seems foreign to most website administrators to protect its visitors by securing their site.  Even e-commerce websites often go beyond encryption to protect their users.  Keep your users safe and take the necessary steps to protect them.

Trust The Experts

Our experts will scan your website, remove malware and malicious code, and migrate your site to our secure platform.  You will NOT get a detailed report of malware found or email notifications because we do all the work for you.  As a small business owner, you need to focus on what makes you money.  Reviewing complicated reports and emails won't increase sales.  Handoff your hosting and security to us and we'll take care of the whole process for you.

Nothing Can Protect Your Website From Neglect

Critical software vulnerabilities and exploits often occur with Content Management Systems, allowing hackers to take advantage of your website. By applying frequent updates, your site can remain secure on a consistent basis.  Don't know how to implement upgrades? Don't worry; we have a solution for you. Our professionals will handle the updates for you and deal with issues that arise.

Let WebClinic Pro Handle Your Updates... All Of Them!

There are two different types of updates: core and plugins/modules. Many hosting companies only cover core updates. Our professionals apply core and plugin/module updates to provide a complete update. If something goes wrong, we will restore the website and troubleshoot the issue to determine the best course of action.  

Regular updates do not come standard with SecureOne hosting. However, it is available to add on to all hosting packages.  If you are interested in adding this service, please contact us.

Advanced Backups

Most small businesses have website backups. So what is different about our backup system? Here are three things that separate a simple backup from an advanced backup:

  1. Number of archives
  2. Length of time
  3. The location of the files
  4. Ease of use

Most hosting packages are backed up for 7 to 14 days. Advanced Backups, included in SecureOne hosting, have 30 days of daily backups to provide added protection against compromised code. Our regular backups are accessible to you at all times should you need to recover any valuable data.

CMS websites like Wordpress and Drupal have separate files and databases susceptible to corruption and infection. By utilizing webClinic Pro daily backups, you can keep both of these valuable resources in reserve should you need to recover any critical data. You can avoid hours of expensive repair and re-development with a simple, automatic backup service.

Uptime Monitoring

Cut through all of the technobabble and focus on what small businesses need. What will help a small business owner feel better about their hosting and security? Our answer is website monitoring. We monitor our customer's websites to make sure they are active. Our monitors are running 24/7 at five-minute increments to check if the site is responding correctly. When an alert is detected, our staff is notified so that we can look into the problem and immediately fix it. If there are any significant disruptions in service, we contact the customer to determine a resolution.
