Gaining access to a backdoor on a website provides hackers full control over the Web server and application. This method is often used to carry out attacks on targeted websites or to steal information. It is rather difficult to detect as hackers will gain root privileges and use them to hide the backdoor.

As more companies put their business online, the playing field for hackers continues to grow. Companies are facing a wider range of cybersecurity threats than ever before that target their infrastructure, applications, operations and even employees. To protect their business interests, organizations must safeguard their data. As most attacks today are carried out automatically using an army of bots that are not targeting specific companies, hackers are trying to reach as many websites as possible to maximize their botnet ROI — and any company, big or small, is a target.

With the rapid evolution of online threats, cloud-based services are becoming a larger part of an organization's operational security strategy. Eldad Chai, director of product management at Incapsula, explains some of the biggest challenges in mitigating malicious attacks and the questions organizations should keep in mind when developing a strategic security plan.
