The Types of Malware Jetpack Scan Catches

No one wants malware on their site. It leads to lost traffic, sales, and visitor trust. If your website is your business, it could have huge financial implications.

Jetpack Scan monitors your website and alerts you if it finds something wrong. Let’s take a look at how hackers can access your site, the types of threats they cause, and why Jetpack Scan is the best method of protection.
