There is no such thing as a 100% secure CMS, nor is there such a thing as a 100% secure Content Management System.
WordPress is a secure CMS as any other out there, but ultimately it is up to you to determine whether your site’s own secure by ensuring that the development team’s hard work in keeping it safe is implemented by you in your administrator role.
WordPress has an unfair reputation for having poor security. It has been around for a very long time and is extremely popular, powering over 30% of the web. YOU are the key to effective security more than anything else.
The key reason of successful attacks are not representative of WordPress as a secure CMS are down to WordPress having an open system for plugin and theme development, and the vast majority of vulnerabilities are actually to do with plugins and themes rather than the core system.
IT’S CRITICALLY IMPORTANT TO HAVE THE RIGHT SET-UP NOW DAYS TO MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR AN UNAUTHORISED PERSON TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE SITE.
<h3>How JB Digitals secure your WordPress websites </h3>
There are a lot of steps that can be taken to ensure a secure WordPress setup, which can be fine tuned to suit your priorities. As standard we ensure the following:
All user accounts have strong passwords, and only have access to what they need.
Disable non-required functionality, such as WordPress comments
Install security auditing and logging software that tracks usage
Install an SSL certificate.
Use a Web Application Firewal
Jb Digitals believe that with the right setup in terms of hardening the core system, the right hosting platform and proactive ongoing maintenance, WordPress can be made as secure as any other CMS available today on the market.
