Need greater security online?
Start by changing your website hosting platform

Friday, June 03, 2016
There’s been plenty of talk about internet security recently. 

A recent government report found nearly 74% of small organisations and 65% of large firms reported a security breach in the last year. Many suffered downtime or were a victim of fraud as a result.

The danger is that downtime, as the result of a hack, might start to be perceived as an inevitability. But its not inevitable - you just need to make your hosting platform part of your choice criteria for a new website or online business.



The web design companies you talk to will probably want to build your site using Wordpress, Drupal or Joomla hosting platforms. Unfortunately, these are the ones that are most likely to experience problems. Here’s why:

Wordpress is the world’s most widely used hosting platform. So, naturally, cyber criminals find it more productive to target Wordpress (as well as Joomla and Drupal) hosted sites.
Wordpress, Joomla and Drupal are low-cost, open-source platforms making it easier and more economic for potential hackers to find and exploit weaknesses in their code
Upgrades and security patches that are regularly issued by Wordpress et al can cause certain features to fail, taking time and money to fix

But contrary to widespread belief, you don’t have to accept these security risks. Sites built with our Adobe platform is safer:

They’re hosted on Adobe’s secure servers and Amazon cloud hosting
Upgrades are provided continuously and seamlessly - a characteristic of SaaS (Software as a Service)
They’re not open source - so its more difficult to develop malware and viruses

So, if you’re thinking about a new website, e-commerce, an online business or integrated digital marketing, let us show you our Adobe hosting platform can keep your website safe and your brand un-tarnished.
