Lately we’ve been receiving a lot of questions about malware and how malware can be removed/avoided. In this short article, we’ll briefly touch on some subtopics about malware to help clarify exactly what malware is and what it can do.
Malware infections are extremely troublesome and can not only cause severe distractions from regular operations, but also threaten not only your business but your customers as well. This is because hackers use malware to find and attack vulnerabilities within your network thus begin spreading malicious code without you knowing. As hackers have become more motivated to conceal the malware in creative ways, we have received lots of questions asking if Cloudbric can protect against malware.
Cloudbric protects your website as a buffer, so it prevents malware from being uploaded into your website. All hacking attempts including malware injection are bounced off your website and are blocked before ever obtaining access. Using patented a logic-based detection engine, Cloudbric monitors your website and identifies hackers who try to input any malicious code or file in your website. Since this engine can detect even the unknown attacks, Cloudbric can be the most effective preemptive tool to cut off popular types of malware, such as ransomware, adware, rootkit, spyware and worms and more.
While web application firewall is a proactive security solution that can prevent you from getting into trouble, you should check if your website is already infected. If you haven’t been using a solution like Cloudbric from when you first made the website, your website might have been compromised already. Cloudbric focuses more on protection, however we highly recommend you use a malware removal tool so that you’re certain about the health of your website before investing in an infected website.
Remember, being proactive with your web security is the only way to be safe.
