While working with a Magento-based website you will be surprised by the number of built-in security features. But safety is a vital point and additional measures to make your website safer are at the stake. Let’s check what I suggest:
- Try to be ahead of Magento security updates. Magento developers are working off their socks to provide merchants with more powerful safety system. They try to consider all possible risks and prevent they happen. As a result new Magento versions are stuffed with features and software to snatch detected security risks.
- Don’t be rash! Try to avoid simple passwords included your data birth and others the same. Use random letter and figure combinations and change it regularly from time-to-time. And don’t use the same or a little bit similar passwords for your multiple accounts. This is the best thing that prevents you despite what CMS you apply to each your account doesn’t refer to your store.
- If you are happy owner of large business, you need more people engaged into store operation. It considerably increases the risk to be broken. It’s a mistake to provide an access to all administrative staff. It’s more reasonable they use different user accounts.
- In the ocean of Magento extensions, try to choose exceptionally checked extensions developers. It’s good to test something new. In general an experiment is the best way to select the most suitable things. But remember that when security is at a stake it’s better to pass by any experiments and choose well-tried products.
- You know that bugs (equipment failure, staff mistakes, force majors and etc.) are killing business. In this light you always should have your data backup. The perfect thing when you make more than single backup and regularly take your website data backups. It will play directly into your website restore in case of security break.
- Let two-factor authentication become a habit. The random password is good but it doesn’t guarantee experienced hackers detect a well-made password ever. Sending a login code to a mobile device is good and prevalent practice. It provides your store are protected from unauthorized login case.
What other measures may be taken to keep a website protected? I’m looking forward to your personal recommendations! See you soon!
