Dome9 Security Provides Protected Access to WordPress Servers with Cloud Security Service
Aug 12, 2011 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Dome9 Security, a provider of cloud server security management service for public and private clouds, as well as for dedicated and virtual private servers (VPS), announced new support for the WordPress.org platform hosted on cloud, dedicated and virtual private servers.
According to a release, WordPress is the most popular website and blog platform, supporting more than 50 million websites. Its platform supports secure, SSL-based administration for securing WordPress servers. Despite this security, SSL encrypts only communications between the browser and the server, but a simple username and password are typically the only line of defense between an unauthorized user and a WordPress site.
With Dome9, administrative ports for WordPress websites are closed by default, and access is available on-demand via Dome9 Central. Thus, when a hacker browses to the WordPress administrative login page s/he is blocked from seeing the page at all, the Company said. The Dome9 service enables WordPress administrators to secure both the communications (via SSL) and the server access (via Dome9) to ensure no unauthorized person can access or attempt to brute force the WordPress website.
"Securing WordPress sites with Dome9 is fast and easy, and provides a critical layer of security for today's most popular website and blog platform," said Dave Meizlik, Dome9 VP of Marketing. "Dome9's unique Secure Access Lease technology automates WordPress server access, closing all administrative ports by default and ensuring only authorized administrators have access when and how they need. This prevents hackers from even reaching the WordPress admin login page."
