Securing Your Online Presence

As a web design agency specializing in WordPress solutions, we understand the importance of ensuring our clients’ online presence is secure. With the ever-evolving threat landscape, it’s crucial to stay ahead of potential vulnerabilities and protect your website from malicious attacks. At Cloud Six, we’re committed to providing a white-glove experience for our clients, backed by amazing WordPress security services.

Defense in Depth

WordPress Updates: The First Line of Defense

Regular updates are critical in keeping your WordPress site secure. We ensure that all code that your site depends on is up-to-date, eliminating potential vulnerabilities and preventing hackers from exploiting outdated code. We monitor the official WordPress repositories, applying patches and fixes as soon as they’re released.

Backups: A Safety Net for Your Online Presence

Data loss can be devastating for any business. That’s why we take backups seriously. We implement a robust backup strategy, ensuring that your site is protected in case of unexpected events or malware infections. Our backup process includes:

  • Daily automatic backups of your site and database
  • Backups are encrypted in offsite storage to prevent data loss in the event of a disaster
  • 90 day retention policy for easy recovery

File Change Detection: Monitoring Your Site’s Integrity

We use file change detection tools to monitor any modifications made to your website’s files. This ensures that if an unauthorized user attempts to modify or delete files, our team is notified so we can remediate any issues quickly.

Lockouts: Securing Access to Your Website

To prevent unauthorized access, we implement lockout policies for users who attempt multiple incorrect login attempts. This feature helps prevent brute-force attacks and keeps your site secure.

Blocking Malicious IPs: Stopping Threats at the Doorstep

We continuously monitor IP addresses that have been flagged as malicious or have shown suspicious behavior. By blocking these IPs, we prevent potential threats from reaching your website in the first place. We utilize a global shared list so if one client site is attacked, all other clients are also protected by blocking that traffic before it happens.

Verifying Passwords with Have I Been Pwned (HIBP): Enhancing Account Security

To further enhance account security, we integrate HIBP, a powerful tool that verifies passwords against its massive database of compromised credentials. This ensures that weak or previously used passwords are not accepted, reducing the risk of successful password guessing attacks.

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) with Time-Based One-Time Passwords (TOTP)

We also implement 2FA with TOTP to add an extra layer of security to your site. With TOTP, users receive a unique code that is only valid for a short period of time, making it much harder for attackers to gain access to your site.

SSL Certificates: Ensuring Your Site’s Security

We ensure that your website is always up-to-date with SSL certificates, which encrypts the data transmitted between your site and users’ browsers. This not only protects sensitive information but also helps establish trust with your audience.

Audit Logging: Tracking and Analyzing Site Activity

We maintain detailed audit logs to track all site activity, including login attempts, file modifications, and system events. This enables us to quickly identify potential security issues and take corrective action.

Website Security isn’t “Set it and Forget It”

Don’t let security become an afterthought. At Cloud Six, we believe that website security is an ongoing process that requires constant monitoring and maintenance. Our team stays ahead of potential threats by regularly updating our knowledge and implementing the latest security best practices.

Need an Online Store?

If you are needing an online store for your business, we can help! There are countless choices out there to make but none are as flexible as the WordPress and Woo combination. In the ever-evolving world of e-commerce, selecting the right platform for your online business is crucial.

Let’s talk about Shopify – One of the fundamental differences between WooCommerce and Shopify is their underlying architecture. WooCommerce is an open-source platform, giving you complete control over your online store. With Shopify, you’re working within a closed system, which means your customization options are limited so when it comes to expand your business you may get stuck.

WooCommerce is highly flexible, allowing you to tailor your e-commerce site to your unique vision. Cloud Six can help you create a store that aligns perfectly with your brand identity. This level of customization is a significant advantage for businesses that want to stand out from the competition.

WooCommerce provides better control over your SEO (Search Engine Optimization) efforts. You can optimize product pages, blog posts, and other content to rank higher in search engine results. This level of control is more limited on Shopify, where you’re somewhat reliant on the platform’s built-in features.

As your business grows, WooCommerce easily scales with you. You can expand your online store without the hassle of migration or encountering limitations imposed by the platform. With Shopify, you may encounter constraints as you outgrow your current plan or require more advanced features.

With WooCommerce, you have complete control and ownership of your data. Your business’s data privacy and security are in your hands. With Shopify, you rely on their infrastructure and policies, which may not align perfectly with your preferences.

20 Years of WordPress

It is amazing to me the impact that WordPress has made on the internet – it is estimated that over 40% of the internet uses WordPress as the engine that runs their website. Now WordPress turns 20! I remember using b2 before WordPress was WordPress. Blogging and site management back in those days was a messy world of CGI scripts and rebuilding your site into static pages whether that was using Movable Type or Greymatter. Now with WordPress, you can build nearly anything you can imagine. Here’s to 20 more years!
