Geofence USA Before and After

Systems that provide GPS location data or IP address location data are used by geofencing technologies to build “digital fences” around real-world geographic areas and identify if activity is taking place inside or outside the defined boundaries of those virtual perimeters.

So why should geofencing matter to you?

Operating a website comes with vulnerabilities. Those in cyberspace are at risk from a variety of bad actors employing a multitude of techniques, including remote hacking intrusions, URL hijacking, and the placement of malware to gain access to networks and information.

These criminals are often motivated by profit, particularly in the areas of identity theft and other forms of financial cybercrime.

Among the fastest growing threats to security are those in cyberspace. Cyber threats to website security increase each year in frequency, scope and severity of impact, costing billions of dollars. Global cyber criminals, hackers and adversaries are becoming more sophisticated and capable every day in their ability to use the Internet for nefarious purposes.

Unfortunately these criminals and bad actors have many places to hide, out of reach and safe from International Laws, with their worldwide locations and complex network infrastructure. In some instances, rather than prosecute offenders in their jurisdictions, rogue states will turn a blind eye to the illegal activity in exchange for work done on behalf of their own government interests.

As a website manager, you must understand where threats are coming from and at the same time ensure your site is protected from those who would do harm. This is the capability that Geofence USA can provide to your WordPress website – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
