    Dear all,
    I have a new site I just finish installing on WordPress. Due to cyber attacks, I need organization that offers both security of WordPress site against cyber attack; and Mysql database management service.

    I will appreciate advice.

    You might get some ideas here: https://codex.wordpress.org/Hardening_WordPress

    Hey there @dcngibson,

    Website and WordPress security is definitely important these days.

    The article on Hardening WordPress is a great resource, but can be a bit tricky and may require some more advanced experience with WordPress and PHP, etc.

    I’d like to recommend a few options for you specifically for security:
    1) Sucuri has an excellent WordPress plugin for security, you can install it and set everything up through the plugin and it has a great track record! You can find more info here – https://wordpress.org/plugins/sucuri-scanner/
    2) iThemes has an equally great plugin for security, and like Sucuri you can install and setup the security settings directly from within the plugin. You can find more info here – https://wordpress.org/plugins/better-wp-security
    These options are more DIY, but can deliver solid results.

    If you’d like a more full service solution, I recommend https://managewp.com – they have security, WordPress updates, backups, notifications, etc.

    I hope that helps!
    Feel free to ask follow up questions if needed 🙂

    Thanks,
    Jordan

    Thanks to Steve and Jordan on your friendly contribution. I am currently reviewing your subgestion. Any further advice like checking out another company in comparison with MANAGEWP will be a great idea.

    Lastly, Can I use sucuri and All In One WP Security together?

    Regards,
    Gibson

    Hey Gibson,

    I wouldn’t recommend using Sucuri and All in one WP Security at the same time as it can cause conflicts and issues for the website. One or the other is good 🙂

    The only service I’ve use similar to ManageWP is a concierge service provided by WPUP. They supply security, backups, maintenance, support, etc.
    You can find more info here – https://wpup.co

    Hope that helps!
