Website Security Customer Success Story

Company Overview

Radiant Freedom Digital Marketing is a web development and online marketing company that specializes in working with small businesses and startups. Founded in 2014 by Jason Ross, the company assists clients in developing their brand, especially through website design, development, maintenance, and security. Radiant Freedom’s own website is critical to their business. Created by Jason using Drupal 7, radiantfreedom.com showcases the company’s services, educates customers, and generates leads.

Challenge

Just six weeks after the website launched, radiantfreedom.com was suspended by its web host for three days – Jason’s site had been infected with malware.   He was able to remove the malware himself, and used Drupal security modules to prevent future attacks – however, they proved ineffective. Jason knew he had to find another solution, and remembered that one of his clients protected their website with SiteLock.

Tolly Test Highlights Web Application Security Need

 24/7

Who works 24/7? Not you, I hope – but hackers around the globe are busy trying to compromise systems 24 hours a day, seven days a week. “Next-gen” is not just a convenient marketing term, it is very accurate label for new types of threats and new types of solutions designed to counter those threats.

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.

The traditional endpoint security solution would rely on its researchers to learn the digital fingerprints – usually referred to as the signature – of the virus. Upon detection, the entire offending program or macro would be isolated (quarantined) and, ultimately, deleted.

Configuring The SiteLock SMART Malware Scanner

SiteLock is proud to present our latest feature in our dashboard, a malware scanner that not only finds the malicious code in your website but can also automatically remove it.  This new scanning tool is called SiteLock Malware Automated Removal Tool, or SMART.

The Basics Of SMART

SMART has the ability to use the (S)FTP credentials for your website to connect to your hosting server and scan the files hard-coded in your site for malicious scripts, viruses, and other unwarranted code detected on your site.

At your request, or automatically, SMART can even remove some of the malicious code from your website and send the clean version back into place. With this tool, you can stay protected from hackers who try to break into your website’s information.

In this blog post, we’re going to discuss setting up and configuring SMART. It is essential that the configuration is set appropriately in order for the malware scanner to be able to effectively monitor for malware, and clean it from infections.
