WordPress Security expertise you can trust
Don’t let your WordPress Security be an after-thought.
WordPress is the most popular Content Management System in the world, and with good reason. It’s versatile, simple to use and powered by a huge open-source community. It’s no wonder then that WordPress powers around 40% of all websites on the internet.
But, this popularity is a double-edged sword. The more popular a piece of technology, the more likely it is to be targeted by hacker groups.
When it comes to WordPress security, users usually fall into two camps; the ones who take security seriously and take precautionary measures, and those who believe or hope it will never happen to them because their site is not ‘important enough’.
Security should be your number one priority online, and the same should be true for your WordPress site.
The Devil is in the details.
WordPress is generally considered to be secure, but it’s not without its share of data breaches. Since it’s the largest and most popular CMS, it is also the most prone to hacking. Below are some stats on the most common methods and causes of WordPress attacks
Having an awareness of these is the first step in the battle against those who would wish to do your website harm.
In order to secure WordPress sites, I approach each security assignment like a hacker.
Whether as a standalone audit or as part of my monthly maintenance service, I use industry-standard exploit testing methods. I have spent years learning about cyber security – tailored heavily towards WordPress – and use this knowledge to find any ‘holes’ that exist in your site. Any vulnerabilities that are found are then patched, leaving your site nice and secure.
When I’m not manually scanning a site for security threats, I have tools that are left running securely off-site, and alert me in realtime if a threat is detected.
Using a tried and tested combination of security tools and software allows me to provide a proactive service for WordPress security.
If the worst should happen and your site becomes compromised, whether that be a full loss of service, malware injection, or spam attack, I’m here to help.
I have cleaned up dozens of infected WordPress sites during my time working as a WordPress Specialist, and it’s a task I’m rarely phased by.
