GoDaddy offers security protections for small business websites

Posted on January 28, 2022

Passwords provide a first line of security against unauthorized system access and access to personal information. The stronger the password, the more your system can be protected against hackers and malware. But, comprehensive security for a business website goes beyond simply updating and using a strong password; it requires a full suite of online security solutions. And the lack of a proper website security plan can cost small businesses not only money, but also lost valuable data, time, and reputation.

According to a recent ebook launched by the CyberPeace Foundation (CPF), the United Nations Global Compact Network (UNGCNI), Autobot Infosec and The Institution of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers (IETE), startups and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) remain the most vulnerable segment in India when it comes to cyber attacks.

For small businesses, protecting against these threats can seem like a tall order. Most business owners don’t want to become cybersecurity experts. they just want to protect their website and their site visitors. Today, on World Password Day, GoDaddy has solved that problem by introducing a new line of simplified website security that offers comprehensive security to help protect small business websites.

When it comes to protecting their website, business owners have two main concerns: protecting sensitive customer and company data, and preventing malware and viruses from attacking their website. GoDaddy Website Security meets both of these needs. Each of the three website security plans includes an SSL certificate that comes with web application firewall (WAF) protection. The SSL certificate ensures that sensitive customer data is encrypted during transmission from the website to the server. And the firewall protects the site against malware and DDoS attacks preventing damage to your website.

All GoDaddy Website Security plans include site cleaning to remove malware. Top-tier plans also include site backup capacity (up to 200 GB) and accelerated site cleanup for fast recovery. Even better, these security features can be used by small businesses and independent contractors whether their site is hosted by GoDaddy or not. Additionally, the GoDaddy Websites + Marketing suite of integrated online tools for building a digital presence already includes an SSL certificate for the website.

GoDaddy’s firewall service blocks over 1.8 billion requests per month worldwide; offers a content delivery network proven to make sites up to 76% faster; and has a 95% customer satisfaction rate for security support requests.
