Meanwhile, Excellent Webworld, a Magento eCommerce development company has given some quick pointers for eCommerce owners on what steps to be taken to keep their sites, company and user data safe from such attacks? The solutions can range from updating latest Magento/WordPress security patch and responding quickly to every alert that you receive on admin panel.

For Magento Clients there are some additional steps to ensure better protection:
• For Every Admin have 2 step authentication
• Keep changing admin passwords in short intervals and keeping the passwords complex every time.
• Use Magento’s security tool

For WordPress merchants:
• Only one single instruction is to isolate WordPress components onto a separate hosting environment besides WordPress itself.

Common precautions:
• Use a secure eCommerce Platform that has security features and regularly updates these features with various software patches.
• As an Admin, always use a secure connection to work on the admin panel like SSL and HTTPS.

• Include more than one layer of security for your eCommerce website like additional firewall besides the standard provided by the platform.

Magento 2.0 has always been our favorite weapon of choice when developing eCommerce websites for our clients. Our Magento eCommerce developers are well trained not just in building websites but also to provide a proper security.
