Keeping your business’ website secure and protecting your information from malware is a critical matter for us at HostPapa. Therefore, we encourage our clients to add an extra layer of protection to their websites, in addition to our default server security. Protection Power brings real-time protection against online threats through features like its Web Application Firewall (WAF).
Protection Power’s WAF is a customizable and affordable server plugin that offers enterprise-level security and monitors a website’s interactions. It analyzes these interactions and detects any malicious intent or potential attack. If a threat is detected, the WAF blocks it and ensures that your website’s information remains secure and private. It essentially controls all network traffic and can act as an online forcefield around your website.
Hackers have been around since computers’ creation. Small business owners, with a modest web presence, often think they don’t need as much security because hackers usually go after banks, governments, or large corporations. In reality, small websites are some of the most commonly attacked, as it’s easier for hackers to take control of these websites and steal valuable information.
Research shows that nearly half of website traffic is generated by bots, not humans. Bots often come with malicious intent and can harm small business owners’ websites. Because no one wants their primary source of traffic to come from bots, a WAF can ensure bots stay out and humans get in.
Once easily set up, Protection Power identifies vulnerabilities and protects from threats. You can then rest assured that your website is secured and protected. You can then rest assured that your website is secured and protected. WAF is available on Pro and Premium plans, check all the information here.
