Insist on STRONG passwords
It’s important that those who have access to the most sensitive parts of your website admin should have strong, difficult to guess passwords. We can set the site to insist that strong passwords are chosen for different user levels (admins, editors etc). This is one of the best ways to protect your website.
Brute Force protection
If someone is trying to guess your password, Brute Force Protection will lock them out after a few attempts.
Hide your site Log-in Page
If you ‘hide’ the web address or URL of your website’s Admin or Log-in page, it’s difficult for automated attackers to find it. We can change the URL to something that’s unique to you and easy for you to remember.
Detect File changes
One of the things that a hacker will most likely do if they manage to access any part of your website is to change, add or remove a file. You can get email alerts about any file changes so you’ll be able to tell if you’re being hacked.
Ban 'bad' users
Some people are born bad, others turn out that way… Keep bad users out of your website by banning them if they’ve too many failed log-in attempts or if they’re on a blacklist.
When someone looks for a page that doesn’t exist, they get a ‘404 error’ message. If someone gets a lot of these in a suspiciously short time, then they’re probably scanning your site for vulnerabilities. We can set a limit so that they’ll get locked out before then can gain access.
Extra Login Security
For when strong passwords are not enough, we can enable two-factor authentication requiring users to enter both a password and a SECOND code sent to their mobile device. This way, no-one can guess your password and gain access to your WordPress website.
Sucuri SiteCheck uses a ten-point check to scan websites for known malware, blacklist status, website errors and out of date software. Your site is scanned daily and you’ll receive an alert email if any problem is found.
Google’s reCAPTCHA allows us to add yet another layer of protection to your most vulnerable pages such as the login, user registration and comments pages.
