In the WordPress community our name is known for affordable security, fast malware cleanup, and responsible vulnerability disclosures. As thought leaders in WordPress security, we are committed to sharing concise and helpful information about how to secure WordPress.
The popularity of WordPress makes it attractive to website hackers. With 25 percent of all websites running on WordPress, a successful exploit means huge financial gain for attackers. These hackers aim to take away your visitors, SEO rankings, and server resources - regardless the size of your website.
Open source is not the main security issue. The core WordPress application is continually checked by contributors, but not all WordPress plugins and themes undergo the same strict review process. This results in a lot of WordPress-specific code out there waiting to be exploited, and a lot of target websites to attack.
You can keep WordPress secure with effective maintenance and administration. This includes regularly updating your plugins and themes, performing backups, and enforcing strong passwords. WordPress administrators need to implement these and other security controls. Some services can automatically protect you by using features like virtual patching for updates and brute force protection for your login page (both included with our Antivirus and Firewall).
The best security leverages a layered approach, combining tools and processes that cover all three elements of website security: protection, detection, and response. Choosing your WordPress security services starts with acknowledging the need for all of them.
At Sucuri, we have those three elements covered and you can trust our expertise to stay ahead of emerging WordPress threats. Our professionals are passionate about securing WordPress websites and supporting open-source projects. Protect your reputation and credibility with our world-class technology and reliable team.
Top WordPress Security Tips & Tricks
Stop Hackers From Exploiting WordPress Vulnerabilities
The goal is to stop hackers from ever getting in. Our Website Firewall will virtually harden access points and patch software on your website. This perimeter defense system stands in front of your website, blocking bad traffic out with our advanced detection algorithms and speeding up good traffic with our Global Anycast CDN.
Our automatic /wp-admin/ protection only allows whitelisted IP addresses into your WordPress dashboard with an API to easily whitelist your IP on the go. This is just one of a host of features available in your Sucuri or WordPress dashboard when using the Sucuri API key with our WordPress plugin.
Identify WordPress Security Issues Immediately
Detection serves as the process of identifying when something has gone wrong. You can respond quickly to a security breach if you know right away. Our twin security scans, remote scanner and server-side, continuously check your WordPress website for problems.
Integrity checks are an important aspect of auditing your WordPress installation. This involves knowing if your good files have suddenly gone bad. Our scanners can monitor changes to your files and database then analyze them for malware signatures and behavioral characteristics.
Fix WordPress Security Issues Fast
Have you ever considered a hack response plan? This element of website security is not just about responding to the incident. It’s also about analyzing the impacts of the attack and implementing controls to prevent it from happening again.
Our team of skilled security analysts will thoroughly review your site using a combination of our research, scripts, and manual inspection. We will remove all malware from your WordPress website, 24/7/365, and there are never any hidden fees or costs for complex cleanups.
