While sipping on my first cup of joe this morning, I ran across an AP article called "Expert: Rural US websites easy targets for hackers". J.E Shannon & Associates agrees with this article. The number one issue that plagues most small towns and businesses is a very tight budget. This leads to hiring employees that do not know much about website or server security. The other issue is the unfounded fear of outsourcing to companies who are from the larger towns or work off-site. This way of thinking can lead to very disastrous situations where valuable information can be easy pray for hackers (identity theft).
At J.E. Shannon & Associates, we suggest that the small town or business host their website off-site on secure servers in a fully secure network operation center, like the services at our YourNameStore.Net. YourNameStore.Net is proud to offer state-of-the-art data centers, providing fast, secure, reliable web service:
- State-of-the-art security technology and 24/7 on-site security staff
- Best-of-breed routers, firewalls and servers
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Full network redundancy
- Enterprise-class backup and restore technologies
As a client of J.E. Shannon & Associates, your dedicated web design consultant is an expert in developing websites that are fully secure and is pro-active in updating your site to keep it safe.
The last thing a small town or business needs is a web server that is sitting on the floor in an unlocked, open room that is behind a consumer grade router or router provided by your phone or cable internet provider. And, a website designed by an admin or family member who has had no training in building secure websites. If your town or company is in this situation, please feel free to contact the web experts at J.E. Shannon & Associates for a consultation today!
