Website Malware Scanning & Threat Monitoring

One of the scariest parts about managing a website is knowing your business can be under attack from hackers at virtually any time. You deserve to know that your chosen WordPress hosting provider is doing its absolute best to help keep your site safe from malware and other online threats.

The team at Pressable is committed to delivering the highest possible level of security and peace of mind. We regularly run a malware scan all websites hosted on our network to identify vulnerabilities, malware, and other threats that may compromise your site’s security. If a threat is detected, we work with you to remove any malware and get your site back up and running quickly.

How Does Malware Get On My Site?

When it comes to WordPress, hacks can occur for a number of reasons:

  • Weak or compromised user name/password (control panel, WP admin, SFTP, etc.)
  • Vulnerabilities in plugins or themes (out of date, nulled plugin versions)
  • Improperly secured WordPress configuration file (wp-config.php)
  • Incorrect file permissions
  • Phishing attacks against website administrators
  • “Black Hat” SEO practices (irrelevant links, content scraping, malicious redirects)

You can take some comfort in knowing that hackers aren’t necessarily targeting your website specifically. Almost 40 percent of all websites in the world run on WordPress. What hackers do is take advantage of known exploits to indiscriminately launch attacks in hopes of finding and infecting vulnerable sites.

We Keep Your Sites Secure

In addition to regularly scanning for known threats and WordPress vulnerabilities, we proactively protect your site by keeping WordPress core (as well as Automattic plugins like WooCommerce and Jetpack) updated, ensuring you’re using a current version of PHP, backing up your website daily, and employing a state-of-the-art web application firewall (WAF) to keep you safe.

If an instance of malware is ever detected, Pressable’s team of certified experts comb through your site to identify and eliminate any intrusive software and clean up the mess as best we can. In some instances, there will be steps you need to take to get your website back up and running. But rest assured, our team is here with you every step of the way.
