12 Sep Modern Websites and How to utilise Security
Internet & Website Security
Almost twenty-seven percent of the top ten million websites currently operate on the WordPress open-source content management platform. This general migration by most web developers and website owners to the WordPress platform is as a result of its ability to address the top common security vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities include:
- Brute force attacks by hackers
After all, the most valuable asset for all online businesses is their data. Setting up a business costs money, while acquiring the business data takes time and a lot of effort.
So what should online businesses and blogs do?
For that reason, wisdom dictates that all online businesses and blogs put measures in place to protect their data as well as their programming.
These measures include:
- Subscribing to online professional assistance from companies which provides secure website hosting that runs on a WordPress engine.
- Setting up secure passwords that use 2 Factor Authentication Processes, i.e., an email address and a personalized eight character password.
Wpengine Firewalls and security features
We have secure firewalls in place to protect our customers from brute force attacks by hackers and prevent the loss of data. The main advantage of our engine is that it works in real time to block any attack to our client’s website. Some of the malicious programming that our engine looks out for include:
- SQL injection.
- IP addresses belonging to known spammers.
Our engine is specially designed to automatically detect and block spam IP addresses as well as all types of injections, all in real time. We want our customer’s primary focus to be on the development and expansion of their business – not on their website security.
Our sophisticated engine easily meets the complex security needs at the data center, thereby providing a healthy WordPress experience.
Our solution to the ever emerging updates and patches
When it comes to the numerous updates and patches that come up, we provide automatic installation to ensure that our customers do not experience any glitches. Our clients need never miss a chance to take advantage of the new features that come with major updates.
Secondly, we go a step further to test these new updates and approve them before recommending them to our websites. We are also always available to tackle any technical hitches arising from these significant upgrades.
Why we conduct internal audits of our systems
We take the security of our client’s data very seriously. For this reason, we conduct security audits as well as code review of all our internal servers and processes in a bid to ensure that we provide seamless service to our customers. This process gets done through the incorporation of third party security firms that offer their objective expertise. We believe that this step ensures our continued adherence to the highest standards of operation.
Finally, we are liable to fix all problems arising from a successful hack to any of our customers in the unlikely event that it should it occur. When you partner with us, you can be confident that your site is up to date, safe and secure. Contact us now to find out more.
