Malware Scanning

Our proactive scanning checks core files, themes and plugins for malware, bad URLs, backdoors, SEO spam, malicious redirects and code injections. It also compares your files with what is in the WordPress.org repository, checking their integrity and reporting any changes to you.

Powered by Wordfence one of the world's leading security software packages, our scanner checks core files, themes and plugins for malware, bad URLs, backdoors, malicious redirects and code injections. We then compare your site files with what is in the WordPress.org repository, checking their integrity and reporting any changes to our security & support team. 

Software Updates

The WordPress engine is an amazing machine, and like all powerful machines, they need to be maintained to operate at their highest capacity.  Additionally, outdated software is the number one way hackers gain access to your website.  Our software update service ensures your core WordPress files, theme and plugins are all running the latest version.  This means security and performance patches are installed in a timely manner.  The average website can have as many as 20 software updates required each month so letting that go for just a few months can mean your site is very outdated and vulnerable to a hacking event.

The timeframe shows how often the software of your site will be updated.  

Health Reports

Based on the plan you select, you'll receive reports covering: Updates Performed, Website Uptime Statistics, Site Visitor Activity & Analytics, Site Security, and an Overview of SEO Placement.

The timeframe shown indicates how often a report will be sent.

Offsite Backups & Retention

A dedicated backup plan is a critical element in your overall website health and security.  By using offsite backups, hosted by Amazon's rock-solid S3 Services, we can ensure that when you need a copy of your site, you'll have it.  Whether it's to mitigate a security compromise, deal with legal discovery or to replace accidentally deleted site content, our offsite backups will get you the data you need.

The first entry (Hourly, Daily, Weekly, Monthly) indicates how often the site is backed up.
The second indicates how long the backup copies are retained (2 Years, 1Year, 6 Months, 3 Months.

Malware Recovery

In the unfortunate event that your site is compromised, cleaning and restoring it can take several hours of work, costing at least $360.  As part of the Ultimate Defense plans, we include varying discounts and expedited turn-arounds on that service.  Our higher end plans even cover the entire cost with priority service.

  •  A strong password is an important protection to help you have safer online transactions. Here are steps you can take to create a strong password. Some or all might help protect your online transactions:
  • Length. Make your passwords long with eight or more characters.
  • Complexity. Include letters, punctuation, symbols, and numbers. Use the entire keyboard, not just the letters and characters you use or see most often. The greater the variety of characters in your password, the better. However, password hacking software automatically checks for common letter-to-symbol conversions, such as changing “and” to “&” or “to” to “2.”
  •  Variation. To keep strong passwords effective, change them often. Set an automatic reminder for yourself to change your passwords on your email, banking, and credit card websites about every three months.
  • Variety. Don’t use the same password for everything. Cybercriminals steal passwords on websites that have very little security, and then they use that same password and user name in more secure environments, such as banking websites.

This applies to all online accounts including: Email Marketing, WordPress Management (Admin and Author), Content Management Systems, Online Marketing, Social Media and Ecommerce
