Magento Security Services

As an eCommerce platform, Magento is a key target for hackers. To keep both business and customer data secure, it’s essential to always be monitoring the site, removing malware, and implementing security patches as needed. Automatically find and fix threats within your Magento website with SiteLock.

Reduce Security Risks

Magento has had more than 200 security vulnerabilities reported in 2015-2022. That might not seem like a lot, but it's almost 29 times a year that you would be required to patch a vulnerability before hackers strike. As an open-source application with thousands of third-party extensions that bring additional risks, it requires weekly security updates.

SiteLock is here to help by:

  • Automatically patching Magento vulnerabilities
  • Accelerated Magento PCI Compliance
  • 24x7 Website Firewall Protection

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Magento 1 still supported?

Magento 1 hasn’t had any notable support releases since mid-2014, as the company has been focused mainly on the latest version, Magento 2, since 2015. Both Magento Commerce 1 and Magento Open Source have since continued to receive security patches, but these stopped as of June 2020.

Why can’t I use a plugin like WordFence or Sucuri for Magento?

Solutions like WordFence and Sucuri were developed specifically for WordPress. SiteLock is one of the few security providers focused on providing complete malware protection, vulnerability patching, web application firewall, backups, and PCI compliance! All wrapped into a single service & dashboard so you can protect 1 or 100 Magento sites easily.

How do I fix Magento's eCommerce store security issues?

If you have a website security issue you’d like addressed or reviewed, we’d suggest signing up and letting SiteLock do an initial Magento Security Scan. It will identify any issues and provide the ability to fix them. In addition to removing malware, patching vulnerabilities, and cleaning up your site, the addition of SiteLock’s WAF (Web Application Firewall) will provide ongoing real-time protection to prevent unauthorized access.

Can SiteLock provide my Magento store with file and database backups?

Absolutely! Offsite backups for both your database and files are available via SiteLock. On top of our industry-leading security suite, your files & databases will be stored offsite within our secure data centers.

Does Magento really need a WAF to be PCI compliant?

Yes! As per PCI DSS regulations, the WAF must be up to date, generate audit logs, and either block attacks or generate a security alert if an imminent attack is suspected. SiteLock’s WAF is pre-configured and ready to use with Magento, so in as little as 10 minutes, you can be fully protected and one step closer to PCI compliance.

Can SiteLock protect Magento from SQL Injection & Cross Site Scripting (XSS) attacks?

Yes. If you have the WAF (Web Application Firewall) enabled, you’ll be fully protected by SQL Injection and XSS Attacks. The WAF is designed to protect from zero-day exploits and when utilized with SiteLock’s Magento security patches, provides a complete solution.

What else can I do to protect my Magento site?

It’s important to make sure that you are following common cybersecurity tips like making sure to use strong passwords and turn on two-factor authentication to protect against brute force attacks. You should also customize your Magento admin URL to make it harder for cyber criminals to find and make sure that your site has a valid SSL certificate.
