Being present online is vital to any business, large or small, but getting it wrong can do more harm than good! Many people simply aren't aware that their website is open to the elements, in terms of potential security breaches and malicious attacks.
Whether the most basic of website right through to extensive and large business cloud ERP systems, all are potentially without secure pathways - and their owners have no idea, either through creating their own DIY website or entrusting their web development to companies who don’t provide basic but essential security as standard.
You might be wondering, is my business’s website secure? Craig told us: “The quickest way to tell if a website is secured via SSL encryption, is all in the address. If it starts with HTTPS then it is, if it starts with just HTTP, then it isn’t! There are numerous other security implications to take into consideration, but from the outset, SSL encryption is an absolute necessity.
If your website isn’t securely encrypted using SSL, then ask your developer why not?
It’s worth noting at this point that Google favours secure sites, with the unsecured left…well, demoted. And the Google Chrome browser will also soon flag non-secure / non-SSL sites as INSECURE, and who wants that!?
A tailor-made website or cloud software system developed by Iosys is built from strong security foundations. Their bespoke service starts at the get-go and clients can expect anything but ordinary, with no two websites being the same and no WordPress in sight.
We recently worked with a client who came to us in what can only be described as ‘a mess’. Their existing website had been compromised with malicious software and was non-recoverable. We managed to extract the raw information – which was an extensive operation to say the least and
re-appointed it all onto a new secure site in a matter of days. The client lauded it as nothing short of a miracle at what we had achieved in such a short time.
Iosys host all of its websites & cloud systems on dedicated UK based redundant servers, with clients having the same point of contact throughout. These factors mean websites by Iosys are high quality, stress free, and uncompromised by common issues. Clients are able to concentrate on their day-to-day; rather than putting the energy and time into developing such a vital aspect of their business which can be left in more capable and safer hands.
It’s this stable, secure and safe pair of hands which enables Iosys to help defend your website and business against many cyber-nasties which could compromise a poorly designed site.
There will always be opportunities for hackers, and threats adapt & change over time. If security breaches can happen to Government agencies or blue-chip companies, then it can happen to anyone. But let’s not be complacent, it’s about defence using the most effective methods – after all, prevention in this case is most certainly better and cheaper than cure!
