Is Comodo cWatch Right for You?
Updated November 21st, 2018
If you haven’t heard about Comodo cWatch security, you’ve not learned about cWatch, the latest website security solution that provides early detection, immediate remediation and proactive preventive measures. KnownHost will soon be making a major announcement about this awesome security platform – so now’s the time to get up to speed and start thinking about whether or not cWatch is right for you.
Today’s world wide web is awash with hazardous malware and toxic software that come in all manner of forms. These malicious applications may lurk within the codes of infected websites where they lie in wait to feed on the personal information of unsuspecting users. They may also hijack otherwise harmless online ads, redirecting users to phishing sites, or tag along in downloads to gain access to, and infect, users’ computers.
As a website owner, a malware infection is more than just an inconvenience. Left unchecked, it can compromise your users’ security and prompt your hosting provider to pull down your site, resulting in loss of valuable clients and business in the process. This is why you should consider Comodo’s cWatch, a premium and comprehensive web-based SaaS security service.
