Find out how to professionally protect your WordPress website
What would happen if your website was hacked?
How quickly could you get it restored?
Do you have everything backed up?
What would it really cost you?
How confident are you that everything is backed up? Your most recent backup might not contain all the latest data and there is a possibility that your backups are compromised, or could just fail. Backups need to be monitored and you need to maintain a separate remote backup in addition to whatever is provided by your host.
Consider how much potential business you might lose if your website was down for an extended period of time. The impact on sales can extend way beyond the time it takes to get the website restored. See Loss of Credibility and Loss of Search Engine Rankings.
What if your site was turned into an commercial for Viagra, or suddenly promoted explicit pornography! That would be embarrassing and you can see how that might affect client trust, but the damage to your online reputation can be far more extensive and long lasting than you might first imagine. Hacked websites are considered unsafe, and added to black lists so that browsers and virus programs warn users against visiting. There are dozens of these lists and you need find out which lists your site was added to and then remove them one by one. This is a painful process and it can take months to repair the damage.
Do you store financial transactions, client data or any other sensitive information on your site? You might be able to calculate the cost of recovering or reproducing this information, but also the cost of having it falling into the wrong hands to consider. Information loss might be more devastating to your business that all the other costs combined..
Google and other search engines remove hacked and infected sites from their index. Getting those rankings back once your website is restored is far from being an automatic process. In the case of malware infection your website might be added to many of the black lists resulting in access being blocked to many users long after the site is fixed. You need to request removal from each one!
Not all hacking is about defacing a website with radical political or religious slogans, or turning it into a promotion for black market drugs or gambling. Some hacking makes small changes that are not obvious and the site might look normal to the owner. Incoming Google searches might be redirected to other pages or websites. The website could be used to infect the computers of visitors with malware. Your email system might also be hijacked and used to send out spam. In many ways these undetected hacks are potentially far more damaging than having your front page being turned into a pro-Islamic State banner calling for jihad.
IT COULD BE MANY THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS...
Wouldn’t it be great to protect your website against being hacked or infected with Malware in first place and avoid all the potential grief and expense!

WHO IS PROTECTING YOUR WEBSITE NOW?
Do not assume that your Web developer or host have website security under control. In our experience very few web developers implement adequate protection, or even understand all the risks. You web host is responsible for providing a secure hosting environment but not ensuring your website is protected.
ARE YOU AN INTERNET SECURITY GURU?
It’s easy to break a website with the wrong security settings. This is why the default settings on security plugins do not offer the protection you need. They are set to the minimal and most conservative settings that do not provide maximum protection.
Unless you are an Internet security specialist, or do not mind investing substantial time in understanding all the risks associated with website security then protecting your website is best left to an expert that knows how to configure the security settings, and ensure that you get maximum protection without plugin conflicts, and restricting legitimate access to your web site.
SECURITY NEEDS EXPERT CONFIGURATION
There are many excellent security plugins available, but installing one of them, and thinking you are protected is a false sense of security. We have observed that in most cases the security plugins are installed with the default settings, which as I just explained provides some protection, but not the maximum level of protection you need!
NO SINGLE SECURITY PLUGIN PROVIDES TOTAL PROTECTION
The reality is there is no single security plugin that addresses all the risks. You need a combination of security plugins and manual code hacks to maximize your protection, and minimize the risk of hacking and malware infection.
One of our webmasters can identify your current level of risk for your website, and manually secure your WordPress installation selecting the most appropriate security plugins and other measures required to secure your website.
CUSTOM SECURITY SOLUTIONS
Just as there is no single Security Plugin that does it all, there is also no single approach that will fit all websites. Your assigned security specialist will start with an in-depth analysis of your websites unique security needs. We will implement what we consider to be the most appropriate security measures for your website.
