This morning, website security solution provider SiteLock released their “Website Security Insider Q2 2018” report.
The key findings from the SiteLock Website Security Insider Q2 2018 report include:
- Websites are targeted by an average of 58 attacks per day.
- 83% of website owners are not alerted by search engines if their websites are infected.
- 1% of sample websites had a malware infection (approximately 18.9 million globally).
- 9% of sampled sites had at least one vulnerability.
- High-risk websites are 27 times more to be compromised than the average website.
- 43% of infected sites had at least one backdoor file.
- 49% had at least one shell script.
The Website Security Insider report from SiteLock emphasizes the importance of threat detection in the modern cybersecurity paradigm. Enterprises cannot simply assume search engines, cloud providers, or other non-solution third parties will take responsibility for digital compromises or vulnerabilities. They must take responsibility for themselves, and seek out a strong website security or SIEM solution provider to protect them.
Additionally, website security is a vital component of any SIEM or security analytics plan. Potential customers and clients are increasingly more likely to get their first impression of your business via your website. Some attacks can damage your SEO rankings, while others can leave a poor impression on those visiting. Failing to account for your website could end up as much a business mistake as it is a security mistake.
