Web Defacement – Is someone defacing your website right now ?
How would you know whether your website is fully intact and has not been tampered with? Do you have any mechanism in place to detect unauthorized modifications to your website content or configuration?
Website hacking is extremely common. Common targets include websites owned by government agencies, enterprises, financial institutions, e-business, education institutions,etc. The motives vary from financial gains and competitive sabotage, to technical satisfaction and plain destructive pleasure.
Would you like to be the first to know when your very own website is defaced? Or rather, you would like the embarrassment of being informed by your major client that your website looks funny today?
Isn’t firewall adequate to protect your website ?
A firewall is good as a network gateway that controls what network traffic is allowed to pass through it. Firewalls are important to filter unnecessary traffic and some common network-based attacks. However, many web attacks are embedded within the web traffic that is allowed by the firewalls.
That’s where WebAlarm comes into the pictureto function as an additional layer of defense against unauthorized data changes.
