WordPress Security

ArmorWP was started to fulfill a common customer need, keeping your WordPress website online and vulnerability free. The only way to do this is to keep your WordPress website updated and your files as protected as possible and backed up.

Our WordPress security service starts by making sure your site is backed-up properly and automated based on the schedule you select. As part of the backup process we set you up with an offsite storage solution. Your backups must have a secondary location other than your web server.

Once we are certain your sites automated backup is working properly and storing your backups off site we will start hardening your site.

Hardening starts with making sure your WordPress installation is up to date. If its not we install the latest update.

Once the WordPress installation is up to date, we update all your plugins to the latest versions in the WordPress repository. If plugins are out of date (not been updated in the last 6 months) we will suggest alternative plugins that support similar functionality.

Now that the site is up to date and functioning we can begin hardening the site we will install a couple security plugins:

The first will help us make sure your WordPress file folder permissions are set up correctly and as secure as possible.

The second plugin will allow us to scan your site potential vulnerabilities and exploits that already exist. Once the scan and plugin setup is complete your site ready for continued use. This process should not take more than a few hours. If your site has exploits the time will take longer.

This service may be purchased as ongoing service or a one time project.

There is no guarantee that your site will not be hacked while using our security services.  WordPress Sofware, Themes and Plugins may be vulnerable.   We can only keep the site up to date and monitor problems and react when problems occur.  We will begin fixing the website as soon as we are notified of a problem.
