Website & server vulnerability scanning & updates

What is vulnerability scanning?

This service comprises regular scanning of your website & server, to ensure they are up to date and have no vulnerability. This will help you to avoid attacks and hacking attempts. 

After the scan is done, we work hand-in-hand with you webmaster and hosting provider to correct any detected error. 

This service is available as a yearly contract, broken down into monthly fees. A scan is done weekly and the follow-up with your webmaster & hosting provider as and when needed.  

Why would an SME need this service?

  • To make sure that the business is secure, and the sensitive data collected cannot be stolen by an attacker.
  • Because SMEs are hit more often than we think! While the big data breaches are more likely to make the news, the fact is small business are targeted far more often than large corporations, with harsher consequences. The cost of a breach combined with the reputation hit may be too much for an SME to handle and put it out of business.
  • Compliance. Very often, being a small company does not mean you are exempt from the compliance regulations that larger companies are required to meet.
