The Internet is a war zone. Hackers are constantly attacking Web sites around the world, hoping to exploit vulnerabilities to inject malicious code on those sites or prevent access to a site with a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack.
You may not realize it, but your site is very likely involved in this battle. It is almost certain that hackers have made attempts to infiltrate your site at some point.
Included Security with RPS Hosting
At Red Pixel Studios, we are serious about the security of our clients’ sites.
For RPS Hosting customers* using WordPress, we include security measures that protect against attacks and monitor your site for malware. RPS Hosting also includes daily backups.
We include Two-Factor Authentication to provide an added layer of security, preventing brute-force attacks. Two-factor authentication requires WordPress editors to use their registered mobile phones to log in, verifying that they are authorized users.
A SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Certificate offers strong encryption to protect transactions and confidential data while in transmission and are supported by more than 99% of browsers. A SSL certificate gives users confidence in your site and can improve search engine positioning, as Google now boosts the page rank of secure sites compared to non-secure sites.
For additional protection of your WordPress site, we include an Advanced Security package – a monitoring and protection plan that includes:
- Web Application Firewall
- Real-Time Threat Defense
- Brute-Force Attack Blocking
- Optional Country Blocking & Advanced Manual Blocking
- Malware Scanning
- Spam Generation Scanning
- Spamvertising Scanning
- Live Monitoring Capabilities
- Password Auditing
Contact us to learn more about the steps we take to protect your site.
* Beginning in June 2016, Advanced Security is included in RPS Hosting. Advanced Security is available to RPS Hosting customers who began prior to that date for an additional monthly fee.
