With the Coronavirus situation, many businesses switched to working from home (like ourselves). As a result, websites are being used and relied upon more and therefore becoming increasingly under attacks of various forms. Everyone needs to be smarter in trying to prevent the websites they look after and improve website security.
There are several types of attacks that we constantly try to look out for and keep our platforms updated. A few examples are:
There are many other types of attacks but these are the most common one we see.
We’ve been working hard, making changes to the websites on our more dedicated hosting platforms and higher packages:
With the changes we’ve made so far, we’ve stopped thousands of potential attacks on the websites and servers. This reduces the strain on the servers, allowing them to process more real visitor traffic. We continue to monitor and make adjustments to ensure they’re as protected as much as possible.
It’s important to make sure that any changes to prevent attacks are done properly. You don’t want to negatively impact your website or prevent yourself from accessing your website.
Over the last few months, our systems and changes have stopped 10s of thousands of threats every month and we continue to monitor and make changes.
