I’m sure most people reading this post have heard the saying, “there’s only so many hours in a day.” And you may be wondering how site security relates to the time management. For most, the saying points to the wise use of our 24 hours each day. You can be productive or let the time waste away.
That idea is not lost on any hacker. To a hacker trying to break into a website – your website – they will try to use as much of every available hour to get in (often using automated software at lightning speed).
A thief’s attempting to rob a bank vault may have the same idea. They would like to get into the vault when the bank is closed, no one is looking and escape without being caught. But the bank security experts have something to make that difficult. The vault has a timer that only allows the vault to open during certain times of a given day. We see the same protection at fast food restaurants and convenience stores.
