WordPress is a popular full-scale Content Management System (CMS) powering almost 20% of the internet. It is also licensed under what is called the GPL v2 License, which means that it is Open Source Software. While open source projects have many advantages, a disadvantage that WordPress has for hackers is that they can view the source code, which can make intrusions more easy. Luckily, we’re here to make sure that your site is safe and secure.
WordPress Security Audit
Any security protects that we take on will start with a security audit. This consists of multiple items to look at every possible point of entry to determine what security holes need to be closed. The first thing we do is search through the file structure of your site and look for things like rogue or malicious scripts along with insuring that all the permissions are set correctly to individual files and folders to make sure that no one can access files that they shouldn’t. We then look over things such as your database, users, passwords and forms to identify any more vulnerabilities. Once we complete the audit we will present our findings and recommendations then, with your permission, we will continue on with WordPress site security optimization.
