Does your company accept online payments, allow client account logins or have an online store? Are you sure your website is secure? Hackers look at these websites as an income stream. Would your business be able to survive a complete site down situation for a day, a week or even indefinitely? We have noticed a lack of website security with the release of highly available website development platforms such as WordPress, Wix & Shopify.
