According to Sucuri, over 73% of WordPress websites were affected or hacked in the first quarter of 2016.
We started offering our WordPress Security, Updates & Backup service due to the increased amount of attacks on clients’ websites over the last year which resulted in thousands of dollars worth of work lost and hundreds of hours spent recovering or rebuilding their WordPress websites. The hard reality is that many people build a site and then once it goes live they do nothing to protect it. Their sites often times are the easiest to hack because no one is watching over them.

According to WordPress Authority wpsites.net 30,000 sites were hacked earlier this year and 4,800 websites deleted without any chance of recovery last year. That’s pretty scary statistics dontcha’ think?
What causes Security issues on WordPress websites?
Why does this happen? Many reasons – using insecure passwords, not keeping your plugins, themes and WordPress core up to date, hosting your site on a shared server (if you are hosting with Godaddy, HostGator, HostMonster, etc – this is YOU) and not setting up extra security features on your WordPress site. There are more than this but the essence of the issue is that there are thousands of ways that a virus, hacker or malware can get into your site and if you don’t stay on top of your WordPress Security then your site is going to be vulnerable.
What do I do to protect my WordPress site from viruses & malicious software?
There are many way to add security to your WordPress website. You can purchase WordPress Hosting on a more secure service that offers more security than a shared server. You can manually go in and update your plugins, themes & core every week, set up some security plugins and back your site up weekly and store the files OFF of your server in a secure environment. And you must stay on top of the latest WordPress Security Alerts so that when something happens you can protect yourself from it quickly. Seems like a lot of work, but in the long run it’s necessary in order to make sure that your awesome new site is protected.

Updates: Make sure your WordPress platform & plugins are up to date!
