Are you like most business owners? Most business owners say that they would rather have stacks of cash than to have their websites hacked. They say it, but they usually don’t do anything about it. It’s like saying you want to lose 15 pounds and then eating a box of Twinkies. It just doesn’t make sense. Twinkies and unscanned websites are both dangerous.
Case in point: 86% of the websites that Trust Guard scans (for vulnerabilities used by hackers to access said sites) fail their initial scan. More than 4 out of 5 website owners are willing to give up stacks of cash to hackers by not running daily security scans on their websites. Why?
Maybe it’s because scanning for viruses, trojans and malware is a preventative measure that, although required, isn’t enforced as much as it should be for small businesses. Is it because, like home security measures, there is an upfront cost to monitor the safety and security of your website? Maybe it’s because, until now, you weren’t aware of the risks of running an online business. Here are some tips on how to stay stacked without getting hacked. Maybe you like to gamble. After all, you haven’t been hacked yet – or have you? Often hacks happen months before business owners find out about them. All the while, email addresses, and credit card numbers are continually stolen.
You want to continue making money on your e-commerce website day in and day out. You don’t want issues with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) and you don’t want to pay any extra fees to your merchant bank just because you didn’t scan your site for security holes. If the above statements really are true, and you want to continue to receive stacks of cash, sign up for Trust Guard’s security scanning service. If the above statements are not true, the odds are against you. You will get hacked. You will lose your stacks of cash as well as your good reputation.
Not Getting Hacked
A daily security scan from Trust Guard can ensure the safety of your website. The scan checks for more than 75,500 vulnerabilities that hackers use to steal identities, email addresses, and entire websites. The only way you’ll get hacked is if a hacker knows about a security hole that an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) doesn’t know about. The odds of that happening are minimal. With a website getting hacked every three seconds, you can see how critical it is to protect your website from hackers.
With Trust Guard, you can run your successful e-commerce business worry-free. Better stacked than hacked.
