While all the pieces and tools in our Business Hosting package work together and are equally vital to your peace of mind, our hack detection system does stand out in the industry for its uniqueness. At the time of this article, we are not aware of another company offering a product even close to ours, and the benefit to you over your competition is really quite amazing.
Clients protected by our hack detection system will have their website scanned every hour of every day. In a nutshell, our system will take cryptographic signatures of every single file in your website, and compare them on an hourly basis. If a hacker manages to change even one bit in one of your files, our team will be immediately notified of the change, and we can swing into action. The vast majority of business owners only find out that their site was compromised once Google or block their site, and once that happens, it can literally take weeks to reverse the damage and have the site back up and running.
Nerds On Site’s hack detection algorithms allow for our team to know the moment a breach is made, and equally as important, we are notified as to which exact file was compromised. This level of detail allows us to repair the damage before anyone knows about it, ensuring that your site isn’t blacklisted.
This level of support translates really resulting a protection of your image and brand, as well assuring the quickest possible response times and smallest amount of downtime. At the end of the day, our Business Hosting package will have a direct effect on your bottom line, by ensuring that your website is up all the time!
