SEO Hermit specializes in internet marketing and e-commerce consulting, but we are also well-versed in internet security and vulnerability assessment. We use a wide variety of security tools to assess your website and work hard to patch any potential vulnerabilities that hackers might take advantage of.
Identifying Security Vulnerabilities & Exploits
Identifying security vulnerabilities on a website takes time and extensive research. Each website application, plug-in, and system is different and every site needs a custom evaluation to ensure hackers are discouraged when attempting to exploit your site. Our team stays up to date with exploits on all of the most popular platforms, including WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart, Magento to name a few.
Our goal is to secure your site to the best of our ability and to ensure that any further issues are resolved before hackers can take action. Occasionally, we will do this work for free in an effort to keep sites secure and discourage hackers.
Why is Website Security Important?
Many people think that website security isn’t very important for them because they aren’t processing credit cards or collecting sensitive information, however this couldn’t be farther from the truth. A compromised website could allow for hackers to redirect your entire website (and all of your customers) to a malicious website, or even worse, install malicious code on your customers’ computers. The end result in this scenario would eventually lead to sensitive information transferring in to the hands of cyber criminals, even though your original website wasn’t harbouring any of that information.
