Gravityscan Provides Website Malware Scanning for Any Website

Websites are a popular target for cyber-criminals, because they offer a platform for malicious activity.  A hijacked website can be used for hosting malware downloads or phishing landing pages.  Personal information stored in a website database about site users, including user names and passwords and other personal information can be extracted, decrypted, and sold on the Dark Web.

I have devoted many articles to properly securing WordPress websites.  Now there is a solution from WordFence that can scan any website for malicious code.  It is a new service called Gravityscan.  Gravityscan provides:

  • Daily fast scan for malware
  • Scanning for known vulnerabilities
  • Content safety check
  • Checking for backdoors and remote access exploits
  • Scheduled scannin
  • Alerting via SMS
  • Configurable email alerting
  • Comprehensive checking more than 20 blacklists
  • Trust badge for your website
  • Great technical support

If you are running a website on the popular WordPress platform, Wordfence is a great security option.  If your site is built on Joomla, Drupal, Weebly, Wix, Squarespace, Jimdo,or anything else, Gravityscan is a great security option for you.  I encourage you to check it out.
