How the SiteLock Web Application Firewall (WAF) Works [Video]

As a website owner, one of your main goals is to increase website traffic. Ultimately, the more traffic you have, the more revenue your business generates…right? Well, not necessarily. And we can explain why.

Bots represent over 60 percent of all website traffic, meaning there are potentially more Internet bots than humans frequenting your site. There are essentially two types of bots, “good” and “bad.” Good bots carry out jobs, like search engine crawling.

The basic nature of PC and server (aka “endpoint”) security and threats to same had not changed in many years. For years, the enemy would be the rogue program (.EXE) or Word macro that would find its way on to our system and either destroy our data or perhaps surreptitiously take control of our system either to steal our data or add our system to its army of drones – or both.
