    Question It it possible to say so?

    Dear teachers, dear users,

    Is it possible to say so "to protect online business [here I'm trying to avoid the repetition of "website"] against (from?) unauthorized access"?

    Thank you very much for your help.

    I prefer 'from' but 'against' is not wrong.

    Yes, if it's relevant in the wider context.

    You're welcome, but you don't need to thank me in a separate post.

    Your Like is good enough for me (and for anybody else).
