What Does Sitelock Do?
In a nutshell, its malware protection secures your website from cyber attacks, whilst keeping it public.
More specifically, Sitelock scans and removes malware automatically, meaning your website remains safe and won’t get blacklisted by Google for any negative associations. Its firewall blocks all backdoor forced entry attempts to your website and some of its packages mitigate Ddos attacks. As it is a CDN, it reduces latency making your website faster to load.
Sitelock downloads your website files and scans the code. If any malware is detected, it is immediately deleted and uploads the clean files back onto the server.
