To say that cybersecurity is critical for businesses in 2019 is an understatement. Each year, threat actors make off with over $1.5 trillion from their nefarious exploits and hacks. In fact, the average small-to-medium sized business's website is attacked 44 times PER DAY. And, if any of those attacks are successful, chances are, the business is going to close its doors within 6 months due to the overwhelming damage caused by the breach.
In 2018, the number of WordPress vulnerabilities tripled. To put that into perspective, there were over 500 (2 per day) WordPress vulnerabilities discovered by security researchers at Imperva. And, this doesn't even begin to touch the surface of WordPress's alarming security issue. WPScan — database of WordPress vulnerabilities — puts the current number of WordPress core, plugin and theme vulnerabilities at 14958. That's an absolutely staggering number of vulnerabilities. In fact, over 70% of ALL WordPress installs are currently vulnerable.
The Marketpath Difference
Let's go over a few core components that makes Marketpath a marketplace differentiator.
1. Super Security
We're serious about security. Our platform has no 3rd party plugins (98% of CMS vulnerabilities are related to plugins!), and we even provide all of our users with free SSL certificates.
2. Fully Managed
We like to call our service "fully managed" because we take care of all of the small stuff. From automatic load-balancing, database failover, website security, and monitoring to backups and updates, we're your non-stop website concierge service. Why sweat the small stuff? You focus on the big picture; we'll handle the details.
Speed matters. A tiny, 100-millisecond delay in your load time can cause 7% of your customers to leave you behind. That's why we give you image optimization and rapid form builders that allow you to scale your website without sacrificing speed. That's a win-win!
