Your website is the anchor to your online presence and often your first contact with customers. Like insurance, website security provides business liability protection. If a hacker can steal valuable customer information from your site and it’s determined that you didn’t provide enough security features to prevent it, your business could be held liable and it’s going to cost you.
As of 2018, there were over 1.5 billion websites on the internet (although not all of them active). Every day, thousands of these websites get hacked. WordPress sites make up a disproportionate percentage of those sites, since it powers over 30% of the web. This means almost a third of those use WordPress. A hacked WordPress site can cause serious damage to your business revenue and reputation. Hackers can steal user information, passwords, install malicious software, and can even distribute malware to your users. Worst, you may find yourself paying a ransom to hackers just to regain access to your website.
That exact scenario happened to Vforesee. After experiencing a WordPress hack that caused them to lose control of their production website, Vforesee knew they needed a better solution to stay ahead of increasingly common cybersecurity attacks. Even with staying up to date on critical patches and security updates, Vforesee was still unable to prevent the breach. With Polyscripting for WordPress, which non-disruptively creates a unique WordPress instance to immunize them against code-injection attacks, Vforesee gains a robust new layer of added security.
