Managed patching and updates

When kept up-to-date, the WordPress core is extremely secure. To ensure that your site is running the most current version of WordPress, we automatically upgrade your installs whenever minor patches are released. When a major update is released, we thoroughly test it before recommending that our customers upgrade. We’ll even work with you directly to make your upgrade as painless as possible.

Real-time security threat detection

WP Engine blocks millions of attacks each day. Not only do we mitigate garden variety DDoS and brute force attacks, but thousands of rule sets specifically tuned for WordPress identify and prevent attacks before they happen. Our proprietary, adaptable intrusion detection and prevention system dynamically detects and blocks malicious behavior such as JavaScript/SQL-injection attacks and even more sophisticated attacks such as XML-RPC attacks. And of course, we block IP addresses identified as belonging to spammers or hackers.

Enterprise-grade infrastructure

All of our customers, from mom-and-pop bloggers to Fortune 500 companies, benefit from our highly performant, secure technology stack. Shared plans are separated from other customers at the kernel and filesystem level, and Enterprise plans run in dedicated environments not shared with other WP Engine customers. Plus, we run a combination of firewalls to protect you from outside attacks, as well as network analysis monitoring tools to guard against any malicious behavior within the network.

A finely tuned technology stack

Proper server configuration is vital to securing your web environment. Our software stack includes provisions to ensure optimal WordPress performance, including disk write limitations and protection against scripts known to contain vulnerabilities. We also implement PHP tuning to disallow dangerous or insecure commands.

Security audits and code reviews

We conduct periodic code reviews and security audits of all internal environments and processes. We partner with third-party, independent security firms to ensure best practice security measures are always in place. Plus, we conduct frequent, proactive vulnerability scans and perform penetration testing, and we allow our customers to do the same if they choose.

If you still get hacked, we’ll fix it for free

Consultants can charge thousands of dollars for emergency unhacking services. Thankfully, you can keep those dollars in the bank. In the unlikely event that your site is compromised, we’ll fix it at no extra cost to you.
