Have Questions?

Why can WordPress Security Plugins be a problem?

WordPress Security Plugins expose a level of risk and oftentimes utilize resources on your hosting account. Just like other plugins, these plugins require a vigilant watch, regular updates, and changes to your WordPress 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, causing additional grief.

Can SiteLock improve my WordPress 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 and coupled with our CDN, you’ll see instant site performance improvements while enjoying industry leading security.

Will my WordPress site be protected from vulnerabilities?

A WordPress vulnerability is a weakness in code that cybercriminals can exploit to gain unauthorized access to your site. SiteLock’s website vulnerability scanner easily detects these weaknesses. Once the website vulnerabilities are identified, our vulnerability patching can automatically fix weaknesses in WordPress quickly.. You can think of it like patching a hole in your wall—if there’s a vulnerability, it is automatically patched and 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, improving 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 WordPress sites achieve PCI Compliance?

Being PCI compliant is necessary when accepting 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/Plugins for me?

No. SiteLock patches the vulnerabilities found in your WordPress site which is different from updating. Our technology safely and surgically applies individual security patches, assuring that the installation is as secure as the latest version of the CMS.
