Server and Website Security

What security services do we offer?

At Firecask, we have dedicated security servers that we put in place. This ensures that any information you share with us is completely protected against any potential cyberattacks. In addition to this, we ensure that the websites sitting on the security servers are also safe. 

Throughout the process of developing and maintaining a website, FireCask ensures website and server security is always present in our process. We also maintain a policy that every website we host must be secured via an SSL certificate. Therefore, you can be assured that we go to full lengths to make sure that our websites are completely secure.

Why come to FireCask for server and website security?

Here at FireCask, we know how vital it is to keep your data and information secure. We use our expertise to ensure the security of your servers and website. This protects them from potential cyberattacks.

A free SSL certificate is issued for all sites we host (even staging sites). This is hardened using the appropriate cipher and a strong Diffie-Hellman key, among other techniques. SSL Certificates are tested once implemented and renewed regularly. This is a must-have for website security services to ensure the best protection.

FireCask makes every effort to keep our customers’ websites, servers and projects secure. In addition to this, we also ensure our non-digital security is as strong as possible.

We have been working with highly regarded businesses since we started trading a decade ago. This includes big brand names such as The Manc Group, Expedia and Headspace. We even custom-built a highly secure and optimised WordPress site for WhatTyre.

How does our server and website security services work?

We perform regular package updates and provide restricted access on a frequently reviewed basis. In addition, we perform other techniques to ensure the security of your website while it is hosted on our server. FireCask does not allow access to our servers to anyone, other than the key server maintenance team members who need access. 

We don’t even allow SFTP or FTP access to our clients to ensure maximum security. 

To improve website security, we use minimal WordPress plugins and only those that are from trusted developers. This is to remove redundant and unnecessary code bloat. We also attempt to minimise the likelihood of a vulnerability being present in any of our websites code bases. 

Our trusted team of developers will also review client requests to install a WordPress plugin. This is to ensure that there are no fragilities before installation.

We can perform effective tasks such as adding in additional server headers, running testing tools, and having user access levels. We also block IP addresses where necessary.

Why does your business need server and website security?

Did you know that over 50% of cyberattacks are on SMBs (small and medium-sized businesses)? In addition, 63% of these breached businesses said it occurred before implementing website security.

If you want to keep your business server and website secure, FireCask can provide external penetration testing (pen test) through our trusted partners. We work with our penetration testers to provide you with a document explaining all the tests performed and to remedy any issues found.

According to Sectigo, 48% of SMBs think they are too small to be targeted for an attack. This means that many businesses and website owners are not ready or feel the need to protect themselves. This belief in immunity can put businesses and websites at serious risk of being attacked. As a result, the long-term success of the business could take a costly hit.

At FireCask, we will guide you through why your business needs server and website security. We will provide you with optimum levels of security to ensure that your server and website are unbreachable by potential cyberattacks.

Make sure to explore our web hosting and maintenance services to find out how you can be rest assured that your site will be online and without conflicts.

Server and website security FAQs

Do I need server and website security?

Any server and website are vulnerable to hacking, no matter their size. It’s always better to ensure that you are safe than to test your luck and hope you don’t get cyber attacked. It is highly recommended that you secure your server and website before any issues arise.

What is penetration testing?

Penetration testing is a security exercise that is carried out by a cyber-security expert. It is done in an attempt to find vulnerabilities in a computer system. A simulated attack is carried out to search for any weak spots in a server’s or website’s defence system. Once these are found and solved, the chance of attackers taking advantage of them reduces significantly.

AXYZ Testimonial

FireCask performed a quick turnaround, redesigning and redeveloping our site, migrating our outdated CMS to WordPress all in a 10 week period. Since the launch of the site in December 2016, they have maintained the site and it has felt like they are an extended arm of AXYZ rather than an external agency. FireCask far exceeded our expectations when it came to redesign, redevelop, maintain and advise us on best practices for our site as well as their level of service.
