Website security and updates are important for a few reasons. First, about 30,000 to 50,000 websites get hacked daily. Moreover, 56 percent of all internet traffic originates from an automated source such as hacking tools, scrapers and spammers, impersonators, and bots.
If your website is not protected from hackers, visitors to your site can inadvertently be infected with malware. To keep your customers safe, protect your website with updates and patches that are designed to fill gaps hackers love to infiltrate.
Website clean-up is much more expensive than taking preventative measures to ensure your site is protected. Take the proper steps to protect your website now, before it’s too late.
Performing a WordPress malware removal is complex. If you feel as though your website has been compromised, contact the experts at CPS today.
