Why the Security of Your
WordPress Site is a Top Priority
(For both us and you)
Website security has never been more critical. Hackers, ransomware, and denial of service attacks are all concerns for the modern business.
With WordPress, the power of the platform is also the reason that security holes can develop and be exploited. While the ability to mix various themes and plugins with the content management system provides that flexible power, it also increases the potential for malicious access.
StudioPress Sites are specifically designed to provide an integrated environment that keeps your website safe from the bad guys.
The beauty of open source software like WordPress is that there are thousands of people constantly making it better, as well as thousands of eyes looking for security issues.
But it’s generally up to you to make sure you update your version of WordPress when there are problems with a previous release. Our automatic update feature takes that off your plate, and with our included themes and recommended plugins, you’ll feel assured that your site won’t break.
Shoddy theme code can kill your site speed and performance, and it also leads to easy access for hackers. The Genesis Framework not only provides a strong line of defense, auto-updates when a new version is released, and adds a layer of protection on top of the newest version of WordPress.
And you’ve got to watch your plugins, both in what you allow into your site’s environment, and ensuring that those plugins are the latest version. Our included best-of-breed plugins cover most of the desirable features you’ll want, and soon our auto-update technology will help you there as well.
But here’s where StudioPress security gets serious:
A distributed denial of service is a brute force attack that is the result of multiple compromised systems (for example, bots) flooding your site with traffic. Our proactive proprietary technology allows detect and mitigate attacks quickly, while repeat offenders are detected from several sources and banned accordingly.
Our “always on” proprietary intrusion prevention technology works continuously to keep your WordPress install safe from vulnerabilities, intrusions, and exploits. Our years of experience, plus audit input from multiple third parties, allows us to create configurations and settings that keep the bad guys away without handcuffing your working style.
Finally, we partner with Sucuri for continuous malware monitoring, scanning and remediation. If malware is found we take the responsibility of removing it so you don’t have to worry about it. Additionally, we also scan for advanced threats, including conditional malware and the latest cyber intrusions.
