WEBSITE SECURITY

POWERED BY SUCURI

Defend Your Website

Website Security powered by Sucuri protects your web investment, keeping you and your customers safe from hackers and other online threats.

More than malware scanning.

We’re looking out for your site in more ways than one.

Ongoing scanning and removal

We scan your site daily – not just the front end, where customers could get infected – but also at the server level, where infections can cost you valuable resources.

Advanced security monitoring

Malware isn’t the only thing threatening your site. We monitor related services (DNS, WHOIS, SSL) to ensure visitors aren’t redirected to another site or tricked into giving their private information.

Malware prevention

Stop malware before it gets a chance to infect your site. Our Web Application Firewall (WAF) intercepts and inspects all incoming data and automatically removes any malicious code. Not included on Essential plan.

HOW IT WORKS

Without Sucuri

The hacker plants malware on Geoff’s site…

1

Geoff’s customers begin to see offensive messages and leave in disgust,swearing never to return.

2

Some visitors are taken to a fake site, where they submit their bank information without suspecting a thing.

3

By the time Geoff notices something’s wrong, customers are rioting on Twitter. It’ll take months to undo the damage.

With Sucuri

The hacker plants malware on Kathleen’s site…

1

Sucuri’s daily scan discovers the malware, notifying Kathleen of where it took place. With her Sucuri plan, the malware is removed automatically so Kathleen can stay focused on her business.

2

Kathleen’s customers continue to browse her site, safely and without interruption, as Sucuri keeps scanning in the background.

3

Kathleen gets back to business without any downtime. Her customers stay safe and her reputation stays golden.

Powerful protection against the worst threats.

Most site owners aren’t aware of all these different threats, but we are – and we protect your site against each one of them and more.

 

Malware infection

The most common threat, malware is an overarching term that covers viruses, worms, Trojan horses, ransomware, spyware and more. Malware can erase all your data, steal customer information, infect your visitors – the possibilities are nearly endless. Our platform provides continuous malware monitoring, scanning and alerting to avoid loss of business or downtime.


Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS)

This attack can bring down your site by overwhelming it with a flood of automated traffic. And every minute your site is down, you’re losing customers and sales. Our advanced security monitoring and Web Application Firewall (WAF) prevent this type of attacks.


Brute Force

This is where an application cycles through every possible password combination until it finds one that works. From there, hackers can access your system, steal sensitive data and doo pretty much whatever they want.


Injection

With injection flaws, a hacker sends malicious data as part of a command or query that tricks the site into doing something it shouldn’t, such as giving the hacker your entire customer database.


Cross-site scripting

Commonly abbreviated as XSS, this attack sends user-supplied data to a web browser without validating it first. Hackers use these flaws to hijack users away from the site or deface it, costing the site owner to lose business.


Zero Day

This is an attack that’s launched as soon as new vulnerability is discovered, before a patch is available. While these are impossible to predict, our WAF will virtually patch your site within moments of a Zero Day attach being disclosed.

YOUR QUESTIONS, OUR ANSWERS

How does Website Security work?

Our Website Security scanner checks your website at predetermined intervals for malware, blacklists and uptime so you don’t have to. If we find any problems, we’ll send you an alert right away to let you know the best course of action. If malware is found on your site, all you’ll need to do is submit a removal request, and our expert team will get to work on fixing the problem. Not only does Website Security monitoring protect you and your customers, but it protects your website’s rankings by checking a variety of different blacklists, and notifying you if you have been placed on one.

What is the difference between Website Security Express and Website Security Deluxe?

If your site has already been hacked and you need it fixed ASAP, Express is the product that you want. It puts you at the front of the line for malware removal and repair, and includes the year-round coverage of Website Security Deluxe. When you purchase Website Security Express, we will start scanning your site right away, and once the malware has been located, start fixing it within 30 minutes of you submitting a removal request. Website Security Deluxe is for customers who have a website that hasn’t been affected yet, but want the peace of mind knowing that we are monitoring and protecting their website for them.

How often will Website Security scan my site for malware?

Website Security scans your website every day. Depending on your Website Security plan, you can choose from 30-minute, 12-hour, or daily security monitoring and scan frequency. If any malware is found, you will be notified immediately.

I have an SSL, do I still need Website Security?

Yes! An SSL encrypts data being transmitted to and from your website – it doesn’t protect your website from other vulnerabilities, such as malware, SQL injections or DDoS attacks. By utilizing both an SSL and Website Security, you are using a complete security suite to protect your website, your customers and their data.

How does a Web Application Firewall (WAF) help secure my site?

A WAF is a cloud-based firewall service that screens and protects your real-time website traffic from threats such as SQL injection attacks and comment spammers, while also thwarting DDoS attacks. WAF only takes a few minutes to set up, and is the front-line defense for your website in between Website Security scans.

How does the Website Security Content Delivery Network (CDN) help speed up my site?

A CDN is a network of servers around the world that deploy dynamic and static caching so that all content will render fast and reliably. This means when someone in Japan visits your website hosted in the United States, it will load just as fast as a website hosted in Japan.

*Google will blacklist sites that could be considered dangerous to visitors, which makes it nearly impossible for people to find you. We identify and resolve any blacklisting issues, so there’s no interruption to your business. **As opposed to simply scanning for malware that may have already infected your site, our Web Application Firewall (WAF) provides around-the-clock, proactive protection to block malware from ever reaching your website. ***Our Content Delivery Network (CDN) stores your content on multiple servers around the world, which means visitors connect to servers that are physically closer to them. This speeds up your website’s performance by at least 50%.
