WP Site Guardian is a full featured WAF (Web Application Firewall) which protects your site against the most common types of hacking attacks – exploits. Exploits are bugs or weaknesses in programming that exists across 10,000+ plugins and themes and new ones are discovered and published daily.
They make up 92% of all attacks on WordPress sites so should be the #1 priority for any security solution. A hacker can compromise a site in using an exploit in seconds no matter what security product you are running – yes you can get hacked even behind Cloudflare, the best host and the best security services/plugins no matter how much money you pay.
we released WP Site Guardian (December 2015) and called BS on the whole WP Security industry who were sitting pretty taking money from clients and doing a shoddy job of protecting websites.WP Site Guardian Protects against all common attack vectors including:
– In URL execution break-ins
– In Form execution break-ins
– XSS Attacks
– SQL Injection
– Header Injection
– Directory Traversal
This is where we kick our competitors arse even more… A standard WAF firewall only offers reactive protection – we felt that this is like trying to plaster over a leak – it works…. but it’s better to prevent problems as best as possible.In the Developers Edition we’ve added pro-active protection.
This upgrade scans all your themes and plugins on a daily basis and compares these with a real time active database of known vulnerabilities (we pay for this service hence we charge an annual fee) – it automatically emails the webmaster if a threat is found so you can take action and eliminate the risk manually.
We’ve gone one step further we also connect your site to a REAL TIME known scumbag list, these are bad bots, fake search engines, known site attackers, site scrapers, known brute force attackers + more ….
Shields up was developed to make your sites run in “stealth mode” – clearing all the critical information that WP broadcasts by doing so it reduces the risk of hack attacks by up to 95%
Hackers simply get bored and move on to an easier target another amazing pro-active defense tool in our toolbox.This is a lot more invasive so it requires a good quality hosting setup – the plugin will detect inferior hosting configurations.
