WordPress Security Audit

The WordPress security audit is a comprehensive security check of your WordPress website site, manually performed by qualified specialists. Our team of skilled cybersecurity experts uses industry-leading techniques and tools to identify potential weaknesses in your WordPress installation, theme, plugins, and customisations. By emulating real-world attack scenarios, we thoroughly evaluate your website's resilience and provide you with valuable insights to strengthen your defences.


What is a WordPress Security Audit?

The WordPress security audit is a comprehensive security assessment conducted on your WordPress web resources to identify vulnerabilities and ensure the highest level of protection against potential cyber threats. This process includes the discovery and exploitation of vulnerabilities, as well as their elimination. Our service covers all aspects of site security: from checking the correct settings and plugins used to code analysis, and penetration testing. Each step is done by hand to ensure the most accurate and comprehensive results. Upon completion of the review, we will provide you with a detailed report that will list all the vulnerabilities found, as well as recommendations for their elimination and prevention in the future. This will help you improve the security of your site and protect it from possible cyber attacks.

How it works:

    Full penetration testing of your website.
    Review plugins in use, their potential risk and vulnerabilities.
    OWASP TOP 10 vulnerabilities: clickjacking, SQL, SSL, security misconfiguration and others.
    Fuzzing for open directories and files to check whether there are files in public access that should not exist.
    Validation of false positives. Automated scanning tools can sometimes result in false positives due to their reliance on predetermined rules that may not accurately detect threats. We check whether the vulnerabilities found by the scan are correct or incorrect. When checking WordPress, we regularly find additional threats and vulnerabilities in other services.
