News Important Announcement! – Website Security and Maintenance
Over the past few months we’ve seen an increase in attempted hacking activity against common web platforms such as WordPress and Magento. These are normally directed at websites that have been live for some while where the back end system hasn’t been updated to reflect the latest security patches. In the same way that all desktop and mobile devices require software updates regularly to patch security issues, the backend platform on which websites are built are no different.
The good news is that for all of our customers who have an existing maintenance package that we call ‘Website Warranty’, your site is already patched and up to date and any issues with it we would cover for you, however for users who do not have an annual maintenance package with us it is important to be aware that if left unattended, the risk of being targeted increases considerably.
We offer one simple maintenance package which is just £35+VAT per month, or £500+VAT per year if combined with your website hosting with ourselves, and we ensure that your system is kept up to date, and resolve any issues that relate to the regular upgrades.
If you are concerned about the security of your website please call us on 01538 750538 and we can talk you through the issues and how we manage the ongoing maintenance for you.
