Have you ever given a thought that your website has the information which can be a filthy rich for the hackers? For a hacker to breach your website’s security is not a difficult one, if it is a vulnerable. So, in an attempt to enhance web security, here we are to share some of the traditions we follow to make it a tough job for hackers to breach the security.
- Keep software updated:
The simplest yet most crucial way to keep sites secure is by keeping all the software, platforms and plugins up to date. With the versions advancing, the errors or the bugs in the security parameters are fixed which leads to a more secure platform for websites.
- Write Secure Codes:
Writing secure codes is not an easy task but to withstand the malicious attacks it is fundamental. In a million liner code, it is difficult to take precautions but the developers must try to avoid common programming errors like: Buffer overflow, use of SQL queries without using parameters, use of HTTP GET method, not changing the prefix of databases, etc.
- Secure Files and Directories:
The easiest way of getting compromised is through files and directories. To keep file permission set to 777 means you have set your files public and have provided full access to it. Always secure files and directories by using permission code 644 for files and 755 for directories.
- Use Complex Passwords:
It is vital to use obscure passwords for your server, websites and accounts as the ones which can be assumed easily could be an undue advantage for the hackers to jeopardize them. Also as soon as you realize your account has been hacked, do reset your password to avoid further harm.
- Use Website Security Tools:
The most effective way to protect websites is by utilizing website security tools. These are the tools that check vulnerabilities, possible SQL Injections, Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), etc. types of bugs via automated testing. Most of the tools are available free of cost.
- Use SSL:
SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It is a certificate which is given on the basis of your requirements. SSL encrypts the transactional and private information stored on the site and secures it from getting endangered. Techno Infonet is using this traditions for security from its very beginning.
