Why Security Is a Priority for Web Stores

how to secure a web storeWhile selling online, security is the second topic you should be excellently educated in after the product itself. According to vulnerability statistics, Magento security breach rate is growing rapidly, and now stands at about 3,000 broken stores a year, and revenues do not matter. Attackers do not aim at numbers, they aim at stores that neglected security and left soft spots that allow them to break in, steal data, and damage anything they can reach. This keeps happening not because the platform is unsafe and has no protection, but rather because store owners ignore crucial maintenance errors and don’t see security breaches as a danger.At NEKLO, we were addressing the issue of Magento security since day one. Our investigation and work on specific cases helped us to gain enough experience to become experts and suggest practical solutions like our Security Suite Extension.how to secure an online storeBut before installing and using any security or firewall software, you need to know what you are fighting against.
