Web Security FAQs
Sometimes referred to as “cybersecurity,” web security is the practice and implementation of protecting web based properties and networks by means of prevention and detection. Well fortified web security measures will also help defend, protect against, and even stop threats that are harmful or malicious in nature, creating a safer and more secure online environment.
In short, yes. But a good way of thinking about it is that each serve a different purpose (or puzzle piece, if you will) to complete a well-rounded cybersecurity defense. For example, SSL certificates are meant to encrypt data that is transmitted over your website. This protects your visitors by stopping hackers and other threats from being able to view sensitive information that people may submit on a contact form or on transactions, such as credit card information from an online purchase.
Whereas a Website Security Service is meant to protect your site from malware and other threats. Bots and other spam regularly try to attack all websites. Website Security helps keep the bad guys at bay. Backups help ensure website data is not lost and can be recovered if ever need be.
Yes, they can be added at anytime. But it’s always recommended to secure your website sooner rather than later. The reason is that it’s often more difficult to fix a compromised site after the fact. Using the example of insurance, you want to have it before you need it. Not after the fact.
