WordPress security has always been a hot topic. Foundry works with different content management system, but whilst we find WordPress to be one of the friendliest it can also be a bit vulnerable.
Many server security specialist and WordPress expert bloggers have written articles about it, so we thought to share the most relevant covering issues from hosting and server level security, configurations during installation, blacklisting spammers, amongst other topics.
From The Moz blog, we can recommend Sam McRoberts, The Definitive Guide to WordPress Security. Smashing Magazine has also a 10 Useful WordPress Security Tweaks by Jean Baptiste Jung, focusing on a range of security techniques.
In terms of plugins, we recommend three used recently by some of our clients: 1) All in One WP Security and Firewall by Tips and Tricks HQ; 2) Bullet Proof Security by AIT Pro; 3) WordFence Security by WordFence.
