WP Core and Plugin Updates
Keeping your WordPress website’s plugins up-to-date ensures that hackers don’t take advantage of vulnerabilities in outdated code. Most updates must be tested before being implemented on your live website to ensure that there are no conflicts with other WordPress plugins or themes. The WordPress Maintenance and Security Package takes the frustration out of updates for you and ensures that they’re performed on a monthly basis (or ASAP for critical security updates).
Enhanced Security Monitoring
Security monitoring that helps protect your website against online security threats is essential in our modern times. 24/7 security monitoring helps greatly reduce the threats of hacking, malware, denial of services, and brute force attack attempts. Suspicious server requests are blocked locking the door against dangerous hackers who are up to no good.
Backing up your WordPress website regularly is one of the most important things you should do to prevent against losing all of your data. Automatic backups ensure that your website can be reinstated should something unexpected occur.
Your website’s reputation, search engine ranking, and ability to do business can be negatively impacted when your WordPress website goes down unexpectedly. Uptime monitoring ensures that you are notified when there is a website outage so that the issue can be addressed in a timely fashion.
