Defend from cyber threats
Website security is any action or application taken to ensure website data is not exposed to cyber criminals or to prevent exploitation of websites in any way. Websites get hacked every day. By some estimates, about 30 000 to 50 000 websites get hacked every day. Actually, the numbers are growing every day and the importance of website security is increasing rapidly. Being secure in the online world becomes more and more important every day and it is vital to protect your website and the data it holds now.
We ensure security in all our projects. As a part of testing, our Quality Assurance team goes through different types of testing procedures. Security Testing is the process which checks whether the confidential data stays confidential or not (i.e. it is not exposed to individuals/ entities for which it is not meant for) and the users can perform only those tasks that they are authorized to perform (E.g. a user should not be able to deny the functionality of the website to other users or a user should not be able to change the functionality of the web application in an unintended way etc).
In order to perform a useful security test of a web application, the security tester should have good knowledge about the HTTP protocol. It is important to have an understanding of how the client (browser) and the server communicate using HTTP. Additionally, the tester should at least know the basics of SQL injection and XSS. Hopefully, the number of security defects present in the web application will not be high. However, being capable of describing all the security defects accurately with all the required details will definitely help. Contact us to learn more.
As many as 70% of web sites have vulnerabilities that could lead to the theft of sensitive corporate data such as credit card information and customer lists. Hackers are concentrating their efforts on web-based applications – shopping carts, forms, login pages, dynamic content, etc. Accessible 24/7 from anywhere in the world, insecure web applications provide easy access to backend corporate databases.
Web application attacks, launched on port 80/443, go straight through the firewall, past operating system and network level security, and right in to the heart of your application and corporate data. Tailor-made web applications are often insufficiently tested, have undiscovered vulnerabilities and are therefore easy prey for hackers. Contact us to learn more.
To keep your website running as fast as possible, and to protect your users and organic search traffic, it’s important to avoid spam. Some spam bots can overload your server
Though DDoS attacks typically target one particular website, meaning most will not be affected, they can be one step in a more nefarious plan in which the attacker follows up with malware.
Careful monitoring of your website’s load times, files and traffic can also help you see if there’s malware in your files.
Though not a direct security threat, being blacklisted still has consequences for your organic search traffic. It’s a byproduct of lousy security measures.
