WordPress is the most popular content management system in the world and one of the most popular blogging platforms. WordPress powers 35% of websites on the internet and 60% of all CMS-based websites today. That widespread popularity makes WordPress a frequent target of malicious attackers. 90% of all hacked CMS sites were WordPress in 2018 and 70% of current WordPress installations are vulnerable to known (and patched) issues.
“WordPress is an amazing platform used by millions of individuals, and small and large companies. Alas, with such popularity comes risk. Polyscripting removes that risk,” said Alex Gounares, Polyverse Founder and CEO. “Now, Enterprise WordPress customers can gain peace of mind that they have a powerful way to help protect their WordPress sites against cyberattacks with Polyverse Polyscripting for WordPress.”
Rather than having a website owner endlessly attempt to juggle the time, cost, and impact of patching in relation to the severity of exploits discovered, Polyscripting simply prevents exploits from executing.
Polyscripting for WordPress removes the problem of Remote Code Execution, Backdoor and File Inclusion attacks by transparently scrambling the syntax and grammar of the language in which WordPress is built (PHP), preventing any non-approved code from executing. This enables the detection and defense of cyberattacks in a clean and elegant way.
Polyverse Polyscripting for WordPress is applied easily and transparently without impacting the developer’s productivity or runtime performance. Polyscripting for WordPress is installed using a compact one-line command that connects to a customer’s existing WordPress files and MySQL/MariaDB database.
