It is absolutely paramount to any WordPress project we do that Sucuri is installed. When a client approaches us about WordPress development, security is always the first thing we discuss with them.

Director, Craig Murphy, is the companies website security go-to person. During the RevSlider attack a few years ago, thousands of WordPress websites were hacked resulting in complete devastation to business owners. Unfortunately, Craig had a client on a shared server where a WordPress site was hacked and needed a fast and trusted resolve. Sucuri was recommended in an article Craig found while researching potential services.
The hack spread through the server like wildfire so we had to find a solution to lock it down and protect our client’s website.
Once signed up with Sucuri, Craig noticed how well the Agency plan prevented WordPress websites from hacks, and with 30+ sites, Sucuri was ideal to ensure effective monitoring for all of them. It was an easy choice in adding the Website Monitoring Plan. The features that meet his teams’ needs most, are receiving notifications on how many failed login attempts occur so that they can be blocked immediately, and how it blocks folders preventing PHP files from being run in the uploads folders.
We take a prevention is better than cure approach and would rather stop a website from getting hacked than fixing a hacked one.
Since they started using Sucuri three years ago, not a single hacked has occurred on a WordPress website. With folders locked down and failed login attempts blocked, the 30+ websites are more secure and safer than ever. Equally, Craig’s browsing experience has been “brilliant” and very simple to use.
Craig and team have seen it all too often, generic passwords and vulnerable folders, so, even if a client has an existing WordPress website the first order of business they do for them, free of charge, is install Sucuri to prevent any possible damage. And with new clients getting their first WordPress website Sucuri ‘s products are installed before going live. As Craig sees it, Sucuri is a fundamental requirement to any WordPress website.
The good news about hacks is that they are easily preventable. Folder permissions are easily locked down with Sucuri and this has been one of the biggest factors in preventing our clients’ websites from getting hacked.
