Differences Between Site Scanner, SSL, and Anti-Virus
Website Protection Site Scanner, SSL certificates, and anti-virus software are all very different in how they function, but each one plays a key role in keeping your data safe.

NOTE:Some features in this article are only available in the full version of Site Scanner. For more information on how to upgrade, see Upgrading from Website Protection Malware Scanner to Website Protection Site Scanner.
Site Scanner scans your website daily and notifies you of vulnerabilities that might pose a threat to your data or your visitors. Site Scanner can diagnose problems with your website such as cross-site scripting or SQL Injection vulnerabilities, phishing exploits and more.
SSL certificates create a secure, encrypted link between a web server and a browser. Any information passed between the two while the connection is established is encrypted, ensuring its safety if it is intercepted during transmission. Websites that have shopping carts or sign-up forms should have an SSL.
Anti-virus software packages vary, but most have the same core features: They detect and quarantine or remove malicious programs such as malware, worms, and Trojan horses. Reputable hosting providers have anti-virus software installed on their hosting servers, and it's a good idea to have anti-virus software on your computer and any servers you maintain.
