The Foregenix scanner quickly determines how vulnerable your website is to being hacked. It is also capable of detecting if your site has already been compromised.
Protect your website with these 7 guidelines
Regularly update your password
Complexity is key
Refreshing your passwords regularly is a first step in protecting your website. Make sure they’re complex, including alphanumeric characters (with a few CAPS) and punctuation.
Update your software
Latest security patches
Out of date website software makes it a LOT easier to hack a website. Keep your website up to date to avoid becoming an easy target.
Back Up Regularly
Onsite, offsite, cloud
Backups are essential in enabling you to keep your online business in business when the worst case scenario happens. Back up your website multiple times per day.
Monitor for malware
Inside and out
Scan your website – both externally using our free scanner – and internally using FGX-Web to identify malicious software (malware).
Implementing multi-factor authentication for all users will SIGNIFICANTLY reduce your likelihood of being hacked. An easy, low (no) cost, quick win.
Use a Web Application Firewall
A well configured Web Application Firewall (WAF) will protect your website from the majority of web-based attacks by filtering out attacks and letting good, friendly, customer traffic pass through. Available with FGX-Web Protect.
