Last month was an especially busy one at Manna Design Works as we responded to frantic requests from our NJ WordPress users to upgrade the new version (4.2.2). It was a critical WordPress security release after hackers had their way with WordPress websites worldwide. The good news is that because we are in tune with all things WordPress, we were able to act quickly – and prevent mayhem for many.
Modern-day website security is serious
At Manna, our web designers and developers are always on the lookout for new learnings. Our job doesn’t end when your website launches. Rather, it continues as we work to protect your site from harmful viruses that are all too alive and well – and spreading rapidly at the hands of hackers. They want in and we want to keep them out.
According to the website security company, Sophos Labs, an average of 30,000 new websites are identified every day that are helping to spread malicious code. What’s more, many of these sites are operated by individuals and small business owners who have no idea they’ve even been infected. It’s our job to help make sure you don’t become one of them. We’ve got your back — which is one of the things that makes Manna, well…Manna.
We don’t wait for disaster to strike. Instead, we put our experts to work preventing it. Training is constant as new viruses, fixes and preventative measures are being developed every day. It’s complicated stuff, but it’s what we do – and we love it.
How we keep your WordPress site safe
As part of our ongoing commitment to WordPress website security, Manna’s top web developers just recently completed a 5-Part WordPress Security Summit. It gave us an amazing, in-depth look at WordPress security and what we can do to keep the websites we create protected. A highlight of the summit included a panel discussion with WordPress security and other industry experts. It resulted in a lively Q&A – and lots of useful insight on how to prepare for and react all sorts of situations.
Keeping your website covered
We participate in this training so that you don’t have to. It’s how our experts grow their smarts – and how we keep our customers covered. Stay tuned for the launch of Manna’s three new WordPress security packages – coming soon. If you’re in the market for a new website, or just want to upgrade what you’re already using, we can help.
