Automatically secure your WordPress website from hack attempts

Reduce WordPress Security Risks

WordPress is a popular website builder that allows you to create, customize, and manage your website without any developer experience. It’s widely known for its ease-of-use due to the endless amounts of plugins available that enable website owners to add functionality to their site as needed.

However, with ease of customization and increased popularity comes risk. In fact, it’s the elements that make your website unique, like your plugins, that may put your WordPress site at an increased risk for security issues.

  • WordPress sites are 39 times more likely to be infected than non-CMS sites

  • 93% of reported WP vulnerabilities in 2022 were related to plugins

  • Cross-site scripting represented 50% of WordPress vulnerabilities in 2022

While WordPress does come with some built-in security features, putting additional security measures in place is highly recommended. SiteLock’s WordPress security plans include automated vulnerability scanning, malware removal, patching, and more.

Have Questions?

Why can WordPress Security Plugins be a problem?

The plugins expose a level of risk and oftentimes utilize resources on your hosting account. Just like other plugins, they require a vigilant watch, regular updates, and changes to your site in order to optimize security and performance. When an attack occurs, it can be difficult to gain access to WP-Admin to make changes.

Can SiteLock improve my website performance?

Using WordPress security plugins comes at a cost: requests, logs, analytics, and even blocking all happen directly on your web server. When a million bots visit your site, it will slow to a crawl. SiteLock protects at the perimeter. Coupled with our CDN, you’ll see instant site performance improvements while receiving industry-leading security.

Will my site be protected from vulnerabilities?

A vulnerability is a weakness in code that can provide a “backdoor” into site applications so cybercriminals can gain unauthorized access to your site. SiteLock’s WordPress vulnerability scanner easily detects these weaknesses. Once they are identified, our vulnerability patching can automatically fix weaknesses within WordPress quickly so your site remains secure.

How does Cloud-based security solve the problem?

Using cloud-based technology, we are able to scan and protect your WordPress site outside your normal hosting operations, which improves performance. Plus, by filtering, controlling, and monitoring the traffic, SiteLock is able to provide real-time protection, virtual patching, and DDoS attack prevention.

How does SiteLock help sites achieve PCI Compliance?

Being PCI compliant is necessary when eCommerce sites accept credit card payments online, but it doesn’t have to be intimidating or complicated. We’ll guide you through each step of the process, ensuring your customers’ credit card data is protected. SiteLock will provide a simplified SAQ based on your SAQ type and then will run an initial PCI compliance scan for vulnerabilities on your website.

Does SiteLock update WordPress Themes and Plugins for me?

No, SiteLock does not update WordPress themes and plugins. Our solution patches the vulnerabilities found in your site which is different from updating themes and plugins. Our technology safely and surgically applies individual security patches, assuring that the installation is as secure as the latest version of the CMS.
