Security

We automate notification, testing and deployment of all security updates to ensure any emerging vulnerabilities get fixed as soon as they are available.

Security best practices are baked in to everything we do

Websites across the internet get hacked and attacked everyday, usually because site owners accidentally left themselves exposed to misadventure. 

If this has ever happened to you, we hope you were merely inconvenienced by it. Other’s have lost significant time, money and reputation in events like these. Don’t let it happen to you.

Cybercriminals look for easy targets. It takes discipline to keep up with all security updates and follow best practices in regards to modern security protocols. But it’s very doable. When you’re on top of your security standards, you have peace of mind that your site can withstand probing or attack. Hackers are practical—when they see you’re protected, they have less motivation to try something.

Security case studies

“From providing support when needed to project leadership when asked, the Entermedia team has always come through for us. We’ve been counting on Entermedia for five years to maintain several high-traffic websites in a competitive space, and have also engaged them for custom design/development projects. This crew does not disappoint. Not only have they enhanced our users’ frontend experience, improving engagement and search performance, they’ve also simplified and streamlined our backend experience, making all of our jobs easier. And we know Entermedia has our back and will reply within minutes via slack or email if we need them. Where would we be without them? Don’t want to know.”
