The challenges of managing your website’s security

As the most popular content management system (CMS) on the planet, WordPress is a prime target for hackers and malicious actors. Because of this, WordPress is hot on its core security.

While the numbers look good on paper – around three percent of sites have some kind of infection or blocklisted resources – this doesn’t mean you should relax. In fact, there are plenty of threats to consider when it comes to your WordPress website:

Given the complex array of attacks, managing the security of a single WordPress site can be challenging enough. However, when you’re responsible for multiple sites, that complexity and scope multiplies. A network of sites will always need a present and proactive approach to security monitoring. This is even harder if you manage a batch of sites without any connection.

As such, an efficient and effective way to monitor and secure every site you look after will have mega value. Kinsta can provide this to every customer.
