Web security has always been top of mind. Performance comes in at a close second. The difficulty many businesses face: security and performance are “under the hood” and out of mind for millions of published websites. Nearly 50% of our clients come to us with websites that are built incorrectly or operate at considerably lower standards than their competition. Today, it is essential that a website is a well oiled, well groomed machine that loads as fast as it is secure.
We are introducing a new level of excellence for all of our websites to challenge: The Marmon Certificate.
Becoming Marmon Certified
We are holding all the websites we build to a new level of excellence to assure our clients that they are receiving the best in class. Having recently had an issue where our website was compromised, we built on that experience and partnered with a powerful hosting company – flywheel to manage security and performance on all the sites we manage.
Our websites are run through a rigorous testing environment prior to launch, and results in a Marmon Certificate being awarded to websites that we not only host, but also meet our standards. While this stamp is active, we continue to monitor the site’s security and performance to ensure the site is always performing at optimal condition.
What are the standards?
Below are the technical requirements necessary to achieve a Marmon Certified website.
- Website must have an SSL certificate
- Admin access must incorporate limited login attempts to protect against brute force.
- Security scans/malware scans must be conducted once per month
- Daily backups must be kept
