Security Scanning

Anti-virus, malware, and threat detection for your WordPress site, with automated resolution.

What are website security threats?

If a hacker or spammer gains unauthorized access to your site via a “backdoor,” you probably won’t notice anything odd when visiting your site or using your dashboard.

Hackers are clever, and stealth is their best weapon. They take advantage of these backdoors by stealing your data, or subtly inserting malicious links to redirect your traffic elsewhere or compromise your visitors’ security.

Website security threats often result in one or more of the following:

  • Unauthorized access to your site database, including user account details.
  • Modification of links so that visitors are redirected to questionable sites.
  • Insertion of code that shows popups, or attempts to trick users into disclosing sensitive information.
  • Possible blocking or banning of your site from search engine results.
  • Loss of trust in your brand and site by customers if any of the above happens.

The solution? Constant patrols for code changes and infiltrations, just like a traditional anti-virus program does on your laptop or computer.
