Law Firm Website Security
Proactive. Secure. Protection
Protect your law firm’s reputation
You should not have to worry about the security of your website. You’re busy running a law firm and your website should:
- work smoothly for you 24/7,
- be fully monitored,
- be protected from hackers, and
- functionally up to date
Our website security system provides daily database backups, website security, user security and regular updates of plugins and programs.
Website security is the last thing that most lawyers will think of while building a website. An effective approach to website security must be proactive and defensive. It’s good to be worried about the bad effects of it, to your law firm and your reputation.
What we do to protect you
All of our websites have multiple layers of security, including implementation of security measures at the hosting, platform, plugin and user level.
According to Google’s 2016 research, the number of hacked sites rose over 30% in 2016 compared to 2015. Ensuring your site is protected from attackers is paramount to your site’s uptime and your brand’s integrity.
We automatically update sites to the latest secure patched branch when WordPress releases them. Our hosting partner WP Engine monitors shared and private vulnerability feeds to ensure the platform is hardened against new vulnerabilities.
All plugins are updated weekly and we implement multi-factor authentication on all of our sites.
