Passwords provide the first line of security against unauthorized access to the system and access to personal information. The stronger the password, the more protected your system can be from hackers and malicious software. But, the complete security of a business website goes beyond just updating and having a strong password; it requires a comprehensive suite of online security solutions. And lack of a proper website security plan can cost small businesses not just money, but in loss of valuable data, time and reputation too.
As per a recent ebook launched by CyberPeace Foundation (CPF), the United Nations Global Compact Network (UNGCNI), Autobot Infosec, and The Institution of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers (IETE), startups and small and medium businesses (SMEs) remain the most vulnerable segment in India when it comes to cyber-attacks.
For small ventures, protecting against these threats may seem like a daunting challenge. Most business owners don’t want to become cybersecurity experts; they just want to protect their website and site visitors. Today, on the occasion of World Password Day, GoDaddy has addressed this by introducing a new, simplified Website Security line-up that provides comprehensive security to help protect small business websites.
When it comes to protecting their website, business owners have two primary concerns: protecting sensitive customer and business data, and preventing malware and viruses from attacking their website. GoDaddy Website Security addresses both these needs. Each of the three Website Security plans includes an SSL Certificate that comes with Web Application Firewall (WAF) protection. The SSL Certificate ensures that sensitive customer data is encrypted during transmission from the website to the server. And the firewall protects the site from malware and DDoS attacks warding off damage to your website.
All GoDaddy Website Security plans include site cleanup to remove malware. Higher-level plans also include site backup capability (up to 200 GB) and expedited site cleanup for quick recovery. Best of all, these security features can be used by small businesses and independent entrepreneurs whether their site is hosted by GoDaddy or not. In addition, the GoDaddy Websites + Marketing suite of integrated online tools for creating a digital presence already includes an SSL Certificate for the website.
GoDaddy’s firewall service blocks more than 1.8 billion requests per month globally; offers a content delivery network that’s proven to make sites up to 76 percent faster, and has a 95 percent customer satisfaction rating on security support requests.
