2 Ways To Insure Better Website Security

In today's world, security is becoming the most important things that businesses need to worry about. Without proper web security, you are opening yourself to being hacked. If this happens, it could mean you lose your valuable customer data or personal business information. The results could lead to your business failing, so it is not a risk worth taking.

Use the following ways to ensure better website security now and into the future so you can have peace of mind:

1. The Right Tools

Without the proper tools of the trade, you won't get the results you want. With better tools, you can leverage intelligent software that does most of the heavy lifting for you. Here are some tools to consider when protecting your website even more.

Network Visibility Tools

Each time any kind of information is transferred from one of your computers or phones across to another one (which happens on a variety of daily tasks) there is network traffic. A visibility tool allows you track this traffic. The reason this is important is because there are hackers who will try to exploit the traffic on your network to do what is called a MITM (Man in the Middle) attack.

In this kind of attack, the hacker would send signals to your computers via your network and try to overwhelm the receivers and fool them into believing the information is valid. Without monitoring the network, you would never these attacks were happening and you could be very vulnerable to attacks.

Big Data Crunching

If you have a business you are going to have a lot of data to follow. However, it can be confusing and overwhelming to get the right insights if you don't have big data software that can help you get the meaning out of it.


No matter how secure you think your website is, there is always something that could go wrong. However, it can be hard to predict these threats. That is why having a threat measurement tool in the form of constant penetration testing is vital part of your security suite.


By predicting when attacks will happen, you can better prepare for them. Don't just wait for things to get bad before trying to prevent them. Get a head start on the problems and get ahead of issues with predictive analytics.

2. The Right Team

The tools above are all valuable to have. However, when it comes to actually putting the tools to use, you need experts who are worth what you pay them. That is why the following are so important to have on your team. Consider each aspect carefully and see if you are hiring people with these qualities on your team.


The right team member has specialized or general knowledge of a topic, based on his position. They can direct you to the right solutions to keep your site secure.


You want to have team members on your security team that have a lot of experience. A lack of experience can be a liability if they haven't dealt with common issues before.


You might not have the best people in the business in terms of experience alone, but the most important thing is to make sure you can trust them. Then you can train them on everything else they need to know. After all, having someone with all that access to your information is a tricky situation.

When it comes to security today, you can never be too confident. You have to make sure that you have the best security in place for your needs. The best way to guarantee this is to have the best team and tools in place. If you do, you could be in a great position to dominate your marketplace. If you fail to, you might experience pain due to the loss of valuable intel including your customer information and private business information.
