Increased WordPress Security On Hosted Websites

A recent article reported that WordPress.com is moving to enable HTTPS by default on all of its 600,000 hosted sites. This is a huge security win for WordPress users and the Internet at large. It sets a high security bar for other entities to strive for, and of course helps protect users and visitors from prying eyes.

If you’re a WordPress.com user, one way to take advantage of WordPress’s exemplary efforts is to go further and enhance the security of your WP.com site with protection services.

Firefox security issue

Can Firefox Security Be Trusted?

I love Firefox. I’ve used it since it was Firebird, if not Phoenix, and it’s my main browser on every device. I value Mozilla’s dedication to an open, secure, and private internet, and because of that, I recommend Firefox to friends and family. That’s why two recent Firefox developments have me concerned. This week we’ll discuss a troubling statement about the state of Firefox security, the sunsetting of the use of SHA-1 in SSL certificates and Firefox’s recent exception to that, and whether Firefox is still a secure browsing option.

They can also be problematic. This week we’ll discuss why website backups are essential, and then reveal how faulty backup security can harm a site and how to prevent that from happening.

Speeding Up Your WordPress Site

 

CDNs are great for WordPress sites because much of the post content is static and can easily be cached and served by a CDN. With visitors receiving cached content from the closest CDN data center, origin server load decreases, allowing sites to load faster for site visitors. At the same time, serving a site from multiple data centers makes the origin server more robust. A fortuitous spike in traffic won’t take a site down as the data centers handle the increased load.

Speeding Up Your WordPress Site with a CDN

A content delivery network (CDN) is a network of powerful computers located in geographically disparate locations designed to serve web content to visitors with higher performance and efficiency. When a user visits a site using a CDN, the traffic routes through the closest or most efficient server for that user and serves up cached, or stored, versions of the site resources. This allows the site to load faster and eliminate requests back to the origin server. Common resources served by a CDN include static resources like images, HTML, CSS and JavaScript files.

IoT security needed

Does Your Coffee Maker Need IoT Security?

There’s no bigger buzzword in the security world now than the ‘Internet of Things.’ The Internet of Things, or IoT, is the connectedness of everyday devices and sensors to allow the quantification and control of systems. Video doorbells alert wayward homeowners of visitors. Bluetooth fobs connect car keys to smartphones. Thermostats track heating and cooling preferences to select a tailored temperature for a homeowner.  Unfortunately, the design complexity of a previously unconnected device now given intelligence and network access can lead to unforeseen issues and real-world consequences. Therefore, IoT security must be a consideration and, ideally, a foundational characteristic in their design.
