Could your WordPress website be at risk? WordPress is an open-source software/CMS anyone can use free of charge. It’s extremely popular and highly customizable, and its functionality can be enhanced through plugins and themes.
WordPress offers one of the fastest, most popular and easiest ways to build a website. Over 40% of all websites are WordPress websites. It can easily be used by people who are not developers, and it’s generally safe and secure. However, because it is used so broadly, it can also be an easy target for cyberattacks.
Take every precaution to ensure the security of your website and sensitive data by having a backup/recovery plan securely in place. Have someone on your team that is able to upgrade versions and is ready to fix issues as they arise. If you don’t, we can be that resource for you!
WordPress requires ongoing updates to frameworks, themes, PHP, WordPress, and plugins to ensure that nothing breaks on your website, and the website must be thoroughly tested on web and mobile after.
SECURITY ALERT: It’s Time to Reach Out to Proleadsoft for Help.

- Ensure that your site uses trusted sources for plugins and themes

- Limit access to the Admin Panel and make sure passwords are changed regularly and are difficult to guess.
