Do I need website security?
Definitely YES! Now, more than ever, if you own a website, you need to be actively scanning for both external and internal vulnerabilities, and you need to make sure that you have the latest and most secure SSL to protect all of your customer's data as it transitions to and from your server. These are the 3 main tools used to protect your website from being compromised.
What does External Scanning, Internal Scanning, and SSL do to protect my website and customer data?
The best way to think of this is by using Fort Knox as an example:
External Scanning is like the outer walls and barbed-wire fences - keeping intruders away by blocking them from ever getting in.
Internal Scanning is like the security guards inside, constantly looking for intruders or things out of the ordinary.
SSL is like the armored trucks that safely move valuable items to and from the facility to other secured locations.
Ultimately, you need all three to fully protect your website, otherwise you open yourself up to potential vulnerabilities.
Doesn't my hosting provider protect me?
Unfortunately, no. They protect the server your website is hosted on, but not your website directly. It's like a property management company that takes care of a building's security, but each tenant is responsible to protect their own apartment. Actually, if you get hacked, it's very likely that your hosting company will shut down your website.
Can Trust Guard help me become PCI Compliant?
Yes. We offer a Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) generator that you can use to submit to your merchant provider, along with your passed PCI scan results.
