Website attacks can produce devastating results — from high profile data breaches to brand damage, lawsuits and fines. Organized hacker networks are attacking websites of all sizes to get personal and financial data to sell on the black market.
Hackers have gone professional, yet most hosting companies still do not provide security to match the threat of sophisticated attacks. The days when simple firewalls and intrusion detection systems (IDS) were enough to keep your website secure are long gone. Now, preventing a hacker from taking over your website and stealing your data requires a much deeper, more serious approach at every level.
With new vulnerabilities being identified every day, the latest firewalls and Intrusion Detection Systems will not protect your organization if they are not kept up-to-date and configured correctly. In addition to new vulnerabilities, any changes to your system's configuration may open up new paths. Being audited 'all safe' last week does not mean your systems are fine today.
We help you your company's security exposure and eliminate the risks associated with manual audits. Utilising the most up-to-date database of known vulnerabilities, We identify any security risks and provides you with the right peace-of-mind, because your software applications are being scanned from the perspective of a hacker who is outside your organization.
You can provide security for your Web sites. You can configure security for an entire site as well as for individual folders and files in a site. You can set general security for a Web site and then add other security requirements for specific folders and files in the site. Internet Information Services provides the following methods for controlling access to Web site resources:
In addition, we use access control lists (ACLs) to control access to Web resources that are installed on NTFS file systems.
The term phishing (pronounced "fishing") comes from the idea that Internet fraudsters are fishing for information -- usually confidential information such as bank account numbers and passwords -- and by sending out millions of phishing emails, they are bound to catch a bite.
Scammers phish for your personal information in a variety of ways. The most common method is through fraudulent emails that claim to be from your bank or another institution that already has your personal details. The email usually asks you to confirm these details by replying to the email or by visiting a fake web site that looks very similar to a real web site from the relevant institution. These practices are also referred to as social engineering.
Once scammers have convinced you to share your personal information, they can use it in a number of ways. Your credit card can be used for unauthorized purchases, your bank account can be cleared out, or your information can be sold to an identity theft ring.
Denial of Service (DoS) is an assault on a network that flood it with so many additional requests that regular traffic is either slowed or completely interrupted. Unlike single bullet intrusions (such as a worm or Trojan) which cause information damage or leakage, DoS attacks disrupt the availability of network resources and can interrupt network service for a long period of time.
Typical victims for DoS attacks are online businesses, carriers and service providers. DoS attacks target revenue-generating organizations by overtaxing link capacity. This costs them both direct and indirect damages. Direct damages include revenue loss or increased network costs. Indirect damages are related to business reputation and increased operational expenses.
The common form of DoS attacks is DDoS attacks, where hackers take advantage of bot-infected, compromised computers to launch large-scale attacks. The results of such DoS attack are devastating, ranging from service slowdowns to complete service shutdowns for hours – or days.
Every minute of downtime, planned or unplanned, can mean thousands in lost revenue, annoyed customers, and a negative impact on your reputation. If you have a business critical website, you need 24/7 monitoring.
Downtime brings your business to a halt: customers can't reach your site, online transactions and client emails aren't received, your helpdesk gets overloaded with complaints, while staff sit around waiting for systems to start working again. Can your business afford the damaged reputation and lost revenue of downtime?
We monitor your websites, servers and applications, notify key personnel when problems occur, and analyzes downtime issues in order to get the servers up and running as soon as possible. Well before your customers start calling your helpdesk!
