6Scan WordPress Security is the most comprehensive automatic protection your WordPress site can get against hackers. Our security scanner goes beyond the rule-based protection of other WordPress security plugins, employing active penetration testing algorithms to find security vulnerabilities. These are then automatically fixed before hackers can exploit them. Our team of website security experts ensures your protection is always up-to-date and airtight.
Our automatic security scanner finds and protects against:
SQL Injection Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) CSRF Directory traversal Remote file inclusion Several DoS conditions And many more, including all of the OWASP Top Ten security vulnerabilities.
6Scan Security includes an agent that runs on your server to rapidly fix all security vulnerabilities found by the scanner. Our team of security experts constantly finds new vulnerabilities and attack strategies, and integrates them into the scanner so you are immediately protected.
6Scan Security also includes a Web Application Firewall (WAF) that uses pattern matching to block out even more security threats. Our application firewall is completely configurable so you can choose the level of security you desire for your site.
6Scan Security also includes protection against brute-force password hacking and dictionary attacks. After a configurable number of failed logins from a remote IP, that IP can be blocked for a predefined period of time. An email notification of the usernames tried can optionally be sent to the site’s administrator. To enable the login security feature, click the Settings tab on your dashboard and select the appropriate checkbox. You will also be able to select the timeouts/periods and thresholds for a security lockdown.
Once 6Scan Security is installed, no further action is required to keep your site protected. 6Scan Security is also specifically engineered not to affect your site’s performance or interfere with your site’s legitimate users.
Our dashboard is specifically designed to convey your security status in a clear and simple manner, so that even non-experts can understand the situation.
It is very important to take note of the difference between various WordPress security plugins. Most of these are based on a ruleset which recognizes and blocks certain attack signatures. This approach is effective for protecting against some common SQL injection attacks, but fails to detect or prevent hackers from exploiting flawed logic. For example, it could not protect against an authorization bug in a file upload plugin, potentially allowing unauthorized users to upload malware and viruses to your site. 6Scan’s security response team constantly updates your blog’s protection to deal with the latest threats found on all major exploit databases on the Internet.
To make sure you are always secure, we are constantly updating 6Scan Security with new features. The following features are in beta testing and will be released soon:
– Suspicious Traffic Graphs: See a visualization over time of exactly how many hackers are attempting to exploit security vulnerabilities on your site and gain unauthorized access. For example, we will show you bots, automated hacking tools, security audit software, etc. – anything filtered by our WAF (Web Application Firewall) or by one of the security vulnerabilities you have fixed. You can also see how much of your traffic is not malicious.
– Secure Login: A plethora of options you can use to protect against login attacks (such as dictionary and brute force attacks). Lock would-be attackers out after a number of unsuccessful login attempts, receive email notifications when someone is trying to hack your site, and much more!
– Automatic Secured Backup: 6Scan can back up your entire site and database. If anything should ever go wrong – whether it’s a security problem or just a mistake you made – you can easily download a backup and undo the change. You don’t even need an antivirus or antimalware product! Backups are encrypted on-the-fly and stored on our secure servers so nobody can access them but you.
