If you read about our Malware Scans, you already know that the industry separates these 2 issues. We have implemented a server side antivirus system that scans and alerts to any potential issues. Technically we have 2 different virus scanners, because we all know that sometimes one may miss something that the other will pick up. We always prefer a multilayered approach to things that have to do with security. Being infected with a virus is a major security issue as you may be spreading it to every visitor of your site. This is bad for business…

Why is this important to you? Just like with any other security related issue, trust, and time. If you get an infection, you can lose your customers trust. Which can equal a ton of lost revenue. If your site is infected, it can take time to clean it, but also to come off the black lists that scare people before they get to your site. How much money does it cost you if your site if offline for a week? It is a scary thought, it is even scarier to live.
