WordPress Security Optimization

DEFEND YOUR SITE FROM ATTACKS YOU NEVER KNEW EXISTED.

As hacks and security breaches become more of a concern for anyone running a WordPress website, it’s important to have someone who can take care of your website security and maintenance.

Thousands of websites are hacked every day. WordPress sites are easy target for attacks because of many obvious reasons like plugin vulnerabilities, weak passwords, and outdated version of the framework itself. Most of the WordPress admins don’t even realize that they’re vulnerable and leave their websites without giving it the security measures and tools that it requires.

Website security is a complicated subject, and you don’t want to go at it alone, especially if you’re not quite sure how everything works. WordPromise provides instant support, so you know our team is ready to help you when you need it.

Let us protect your WordPress website so you can focus on everything else.

Important features included in our package are listed below:

Additional Security Checks and Activities

We take security as supreme priority for our clients and go in-depth to fix any vulnerable corner of client’s website.

Force Strong Passwords

We set/force strong passwords for high level user’s roles on your website such as admins, editors etc. Strong password enforcement is one of the best ways to lock down WordPress. We usually define a password expiry as well, which normally require a collaboration to fix the expiry duration.

SSL Certificate

We will support in the installation of an SSL certificate. Your URL will start with https, all the data on your site will be encrypted, and your visitors will feel secure. You will need to buy the SSL certificate, though.

404 Page Detection

404 detection assumes that a user who hits a lot of 404 errors in a short period of time is scanning for something (presumably a vulnerability) and our security settings shall lock them out according to the severity of the number of 404 hits.

File Change Detection

If someone manages to get into your site, they’ll probably add, remove, or change a file. We set up the system to get email alerts showing any recent file changes, so we can act immediately on any suspicious activity.

Protecting System Files & Permissions

We prevent public access to important system files such as wp-config.php and .htaccess file. These files can give away important information on your site, which can expose the website. We make sure there are appropriate permissions are established to the core files. We also prevent users from seeing a list of files in a directory when no index file is present.

IP Address or Host Banning

We will setup the firewall smartly to block traffic from specific locations or IPs. If someone tries to access your dashboard or files more than once, we’ll lock out their IP address. IP address or host can be banned in various situations like 404 detection, known IPs, bad logins, default admin login etc.

Comment Spam Filtering

We will check and remove junk comments on a weekly basis and keep your website and dashboard uncluttered. It also makes sure that there is no junk data in your database and database remain optimized.

Trusted Devices with Session Protection

We will create security procedures for unknown/unauthorized devices, along with Session Hijacking protection and lock down the access to your WordPress website and protect it from compromises to user logins.

User Security Check

We shall set up a system to assess the security of all your WordPress user accounts at one time and act on them if needed. User-level security is essential for protecting your WordPress sites.

Custom Login URL

If you want, we can change your WordPress dashboard login URL from /wp-admin to /your-own-url. That way, bots and hackers can’t find your login page so easily. However, with their security processes, this is not absolutely important but a good to have measure.

Daily Link Scan

We scan your website daily for any links on the website to suspicious content or broken pages. We’ll make appropriate modifications and adjust the link accordingly.

Monthly Reports

You will receive a detailed report every month with all the activities and items performed during the audit. This includes any failed item which require your attention and a follow-up.
