Prevention, Mitigation, and Restoration.
A comprehensive security architecture developed by Pagely® that hardens and protects our network, hardware, and WordPress applications. The primary focus is on prevention and the mitigation of risk to clients.
Secure WordPress Hosting is just how we do business. For base level security, we utilize a dynamic web application firewall (WAF) that blocks code injection attacks, known exploits and rate limits access attempts. This greatly reduces the chance of a DDoS attack or Brute force attack succeeding.
On top of the above, we also practice chroot user separation and real-time system malware scanning. Scanning for malware means we’re constantly looking for things like trojan horses, viruses, worms, keyloggers, spyware, and adware. Additional rulesets at our network edge filter out much of the nefarious traffic long before it even has a chance to pass into our network.
Furthermore, Pagely has always considered it our task to assist you in cleaning and restoring a site should it become compromised, free of charge.
A cornerstone of our secure WordPress Hosting strategy is prevention. We have crafted custom rules for our network edge, web nodes, and file system. All primary Pagely services used by our team is behind 2-factor authentication, and key based access.
Proactively patching plugins system wide as well as real time malware scanning is just the beginning. Our security team executes our 5 step protocol in the rare case of successful infection of client site that informs and leads the client through the process of mitigating the attack and restoration.
Unfortunately nothing is 100% hack-proof. When it does happen our team works closely within our security protocol to clean and restore the client's site to pristine condition, free of charge.
