PressARMOR is a comprehensive security architecture developed by Pagely® that hardens and protects our network, hardware, and WordPress applications. The primary focus is on prevention and the mitigation of risk to clients.
Secure WordPress Hosting is just how we do business. For base level security, we utilize the industry standard open-source web application firewall (WAF) mod_security, which means we block commonly known exploits by use of regular expressions and rule sets. Things like code injection attacks. In addition, we utilize custom rate limiting which means limiting the bandwidth to a particular category of traffic or connection type. This greatly reduces the chance of a DDoS attack succeeding.
On top of the above, we also utilize chroot user separation and real-time system malware scanning. Scanning for malware means we’re constantly looking for things like trojan horses, viruses, worms, keyloggers, spyware, and adware. Chroot means we’re running certain processes inside of modified environments so they can’t access files outside their designated directory tree, and hence this is an additional hardening feature we’re using to keep the bad guys out.
Additional rulesets at our network edge filter out much of the nefarious traffic long before it even has a chance to pass into our network.
