Solutions for Larger Organizations

Increased Performance with the WordPress CDN

The WordPress Firewall runs on a Globally Distributed Anycast Network, built and managed by the Sucuri team. Your site benefits from high availability and redundancy in the event of network failure.

We focus on useful metrics to optimize speed, like total time, not first byte or server response time. Our growing network outperforms competitors and offers all the servers you need to get optimal speed and performance.

The platform is supported by our Security Operations Center (SOC), providing 24/7/365 monitoring and response to all attacks.

  • Improve speed with caching and content delivery network (CDN)
  • Mitigate Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks
  • Prevent hacks and vulnerability exploit attempts
  • Protect against the OWASP Top 10 (and more)
  • Stop brute force attempts against your website login pages
  • Leverage geographic load balancing and reliable uptime

The WordPress antivirus requires no installation.

You can activate it with a simple DNS change, or our team can do it for you.

I’ve had 2-3 different times when my blog was hacked, causing errors and invalid pages to show up. Sucuri’s team fixed the problem right away and got me back to work within just a few hours. In addition [Sucuri] provided me with procedures (best practices) that can be helpful in avoiding such attacks in the future.

Precise Leads CEO, Avi Susana

The firewall is a great add-on because it’s always being updated. It’s not something static, that you set once and then no one touches it. It’s always up to date for any new threats. Someone is taking care of that. The Sucuri Firewall is a great first defense that even covers items I never really considered, or thought about.

I’m just one person who has to do everything. I was trying to figure out IT problems and I’m not an IT person. To be spending that much time…it was taking away from my actual photography work and this was my busy season.

For the price of what I paid other “Hack Experts” to try to fix the hack over weeks, Sucuri included hack removal in 12 hours, PLUS continuous hack scanning, blocklisting monitoring, customer support to answer all my questions, SSL certificate, and then a firewall on top of that!
