A hacked website can cause severe problems for any business, from lost customers to a damaged reputation. Every business owner must make website security a priority.
The best place to start is with a strong firewall. A web application firewall is a security tool that functions as a filter, sitting in front of your website to:
Monitor the traffic that comes to your website
Analyse the traffic to determine what is benign and what is dangerous
Block anything it considers suspicious
Alert you every time an attack is blocked
