Comprehensive Web Site Security and Backup System

Your web site is important. It needs to be looked after. New technologies are constantly revolutionising the way we use the Web, and with continuous improvements to access and edit your content, new doors are opened for hackers.

Even if you don’t think your website or social medias have important information on them, those pages can still be leveraged and used against your customers to hurt the business. As discussed on our Managed Security page, modern cybersecurity is a rapidly moving target, but thankfully there are several layers of protection to keep you safe.

WordPress Security

According to a recent W3 study, WordPress is the technology behind 40% of modern websites, and because of this has been a huge target for hackers. Health IT utilises a number of security features to keep the wrong people out of your content:

  • WordPress hardening
  • Multi Factor Authentication
  • Firewall including Geo-blocking
  • Core updates
  • Plugin updates
  • Brute Force / DDOS protection
  • Uptime monitoring

SSL Certificate

An SSL Certificate must be used to secure a service eg. Web site, Secure remote access.

WordPress Full Site Backup

Is your web site backed up? In our experience most aren’t backed up well. This means it could take days to recover in the event of a data loss or hacking event.

Our system takes regular full backups and frequent incrementals, and can be setup to report to you each time the full site is backed up.

The current standard for web content is HTTPS (HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure) which is a form of encryption to protect information travelling between visitor computers and web servers. When you load an image or submit a contact form, information about you travels over the net, which must be secured. Always make sure there’s a padlock in the address bar when submitting information on a website!

Sites hosted through Health IT are equipped with a security certificate to ensure safe browsing for visitiors.
