Website Maintenance & Security

"I find your lack of security, disturbing." - Darth Vader

Don't let your website succumb to the dark side. Once your new website goes live, it's critical that you protect it from hackers and keep it updated with fresh content. Tension Design offers ongoing support to ensure your site stays secure, SEO-friendly, and up-to-date.

88% of web users are less likely to return to a site after a bad experience.

Why might my company need help with website updates and security?

.01 You have an internal IT team, but they are swamped, so you’d like faster support with your company’s “day to day” website updates.

.02 You do not have the technical skills in house to perform recommended updates, manage website backups, or deal with online security threats.

.03 You’re tired of outsourcing your website updates to a team that doesn’t understand your business, fails to do thorough work, or doesn’t respond quickly.

.04 You’d like to offset future full website redesign costs by investing a small amount each month with Tension Design.
