Website tool to increase security for WordPress users
A new security tool is out from Norse Corp, built on live hacker intelligence and set up to help secure sites built using the WordPress system. WordPress is hosted software which includes some security; the tool from Norse Corp builds on that by not only scanning for known vulnerabilities but for unknown.
Hackers and phishers are a big problem for many online businesses, but a new product, IPVenger, is set up to help businesses defend their online space from attacks. From Norse Corp, the IPVenger platform analyzes traffic and security threats across the globe and then assesses the traffic in real time.
"Today's security solutions lack the computing power to process the massive volume of Internet security threats that are out there and constantly changing," said Tommy Stiansen, CTO of NorseCorp. "IPVenger makes it possible for small site operators and large companies alike to secure their websites more effectively than ever by using our live cyber threat intelligence to block malicious and high risk traffic."
Sam Glines, chief executive officer of NorseCorp said, "In recent years WordPress and other popular open-source content management systems have become popular targets for hackers and cybercriminals. Individuals and small and medium business owners must adapt to the mindset that cybercriminals and hackers are motivated to hijack and take control of their site, which can result in significant loss of site up-time, revenue, SEO rankings, productivity, and business reputation."
IPVenger offers live cloud security and analytics reporting, seamless CMS integration and SEO-friendly architecture; it operates as a plug-in to the WordPress system. It works by continuously monitoring traffic and activity and reporting any suspicious activity back to the business in real time. Threats can then be identified and blocked before harm is done to the business or website.
WordPress powers about 70 million websites.
