In today’s digital age, the security of your website is of utmost importance. Malicious actors are constantly on the prowl, seeking vulnerabilities to exploit. To ensure the safety of your online presence, ReadySetSites proudly offers its “Security Watch” feature included in our Mighty plan, a comprehensive solution designed to safeguard your website against a myriad of threats. In this article, we will explore the various layers of protection that “Security Watch” provides to keep your website secure.
Monitoring Logs for Suspicious Requests
The first line of defense in our “Security Watch” service is vigilant monitoring of your website’s logs. We keep a watchful eye on incoming requests, scrutinizing them for any signs of suspicious activity. By identifying and responding to unusual requests promptly, we can block them from accessing the site and prevent potential security breaches before they happen.
Protecting Against Brute Force Login Attempts
One common method used by attackers is brute force login attempts, where they systematically guess usernames and passwords. “Security Watch” implements robust mechanisms to protect your login pages against these threats. We limit the number of login attempts, slowing down attackers and preventing unauthorized access.
Leveraging Cloudflare for DDoS Mitigation
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks can cripple a website’s functionality. ReadySetSites partners with Cloudflare, a leading security provider, to protect your website against DDoS attacks. Cloudflare’s advanced network infrastructure efficiently identifies and mitigates DDoS threats, ensuring your website remains available to your visitors, even during an attack.
Enforcing Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a crucial security measure. “Security Watch” enforces 2FA for any users with access to your website. This extra layer of security significantly reduces the risk of unauthorized access, as it requires users to provide two forms of identification to log in.
Requiring VPN Access for Administrators (optional)
Administrative access is often a prime target for attackers. With “Security Watch,” we add another layer of security by requiring administrator users to connect to a virtual private network (VPN) before accessing your website. This ensures that administrative functions are only accessible to authorized personnel and from secure connections.
Regular Audits of User Access
Maintaining a secure website isn’t a one-time effort; it’s an ongoing process. “Security Watch” conducts frequent audits of user access to identify any discrepancies or suspicious activities. This proactive approach allows us to respond swiftly to any potential threats and tighten security where necessary.
