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 does gain unauthorized access to your site via a “backdoor” it is very likely that you will notice absolutely nothing just by visiting your site or using your dashboard.

Hackers are clever and stealth is their best weapon. They will take advantage of these backdoors to your site without your knowledge by stealing your content and 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 is to constantly “patrol” your site for code changes and infiltrations just like a traditional anti-virus program does on your laptop or computer.
