When it comes to CMS (Content Management Systems), WordPress is a beast! Over 74 million websites are run on WordPress, including 50% of Technorati’s top 100 blogs. It is unsurpassed in the amount of customization that can be done to websites, with over 3000 free themes, and 36, 000 free plugins available. It has an extremely easy to use interface, which makes it popular with bloggers and business owners alike.
But like any technology at the top of it’s game, it’s become a target of hackers. Developers are working hard to create plugins and server-side systems to block anything malicious, but they won’t work unless you use them religiously. That’s where the Blue Pixel Design Security Package comes in.
I have been working with WordPress for close to 10 years. In that time I have seen sites become so bogged down with out of date technologies and so infected with malware that the entire site needed to be wiped clean. Over the years I have developed systems and collected plugins that can not only keep your website free of viruses, but also backup your files and database in case the worst ever does happen.
Our security package provides regular web-based malware scanning of your website using the latest in fingerprinting technology. We can determine if your web applications are out of date, exploited with malware, or even blacklisted by popular search engines. If we see a problem, we’ll let you know ASAP!
Every time a security vulnerability is reported, the core WordPress team works diligently to release an update that fixes the issue. This means that if you are not using the latest version of WordPress, then you are using software with known security vulnerabilities. Hackers can search for websites running the older version, and you may become a victim of a sophisticated attack. Our security package will update your WordPress site as soon as an update is released. This will keep it running fast, but also keep it secure.
Sometimes the worst happens. You installed a plugin and your site goes down. Or a malicious bit of code is introduced somehow and your site is compromised. With our security package your entire site, with its files and database, is backed up off server at least once a month (often more if there have been WordPress updates) so you can be sure that if the worst does happen, your site and all the work you’ve put into it, won’t be lost.
When your site goes down, that’s a big problem. Our system checks your sites every 5 minutes, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If your site goes down, we will notify you by email.
