Why WordPress?

The Advantages of Wordpress

WordPress is a highly customizable and easily manageable open source content management system. Originally designed as a blogging tool, there are now 2.7 million global monthly searches with WordPress. Organizations of every size increasingly turn to WordPress to power both their primary websites and microsites. Whether yours is a small-scale organization or larger company with a multitude of content and integration points, WordPress is a powerful tool designed to handle even the most complex projects.

Is Wordpress Secure?

At WDG, our developers have a unique 3-step approach to WordPress security: prevent, monitor, and update. Our senior WordPress team is able to uniquely restructure the way wp-config and other sensitive files are referenced by the WordPress core to prevent automated hacking tools from targeting your WordPress site. We also use an automated, secure deployment process that affords us the opportunity to more securely lock down permissions on sensitive files and folders to prevent them from being accessed by malicious third parties.

After deployment, a dedicated WordPress team should continuously monitor your website for downtime and attempted breaches. At WDG, we utilize a suite of WordPress security tools and plugins to further enhance our security monitoring efforts. Our team takes pride in staying up-to-date with the latest core and plugin security updates. Our continuous monitoring efforts allow us to cross reference your active plugin lists with our up-to-date database of recent WordPress plugin updates and security patches. Whichever you choose, keeping your WordPress core and WordPress plugins updated is the most significant step you can take to keep your website secure.

Is Wordpress Right For You?

The SEO-friendly CMS offers over 47,000 plugins, and we leverage their full capabilities as a flexible and scalable business solution. We’re able to utilize these plugins as well as custom developed CMS functionality to make it easier and more efficient for your team to manage, promote, and create new content.
