The What, Why and How of WordPress Firewalls (Infographic)

Did you know that 73% of WordPress sites are vulnerable to being attacked?

Having a WordPress firewall helps mitigate this risk by giving your website an extra layer of protection to defend against known vulnerabilities and attacks.

In addition to protecting your site, WordPress firewall providers also supply extra tools such as malware scanning, search engine blacklist checking and uptime monitoring to alert you of halmful changes to your site.

With new versions of WordPress and the ever expanding amount of plugins available, firewall providers are constantly updating their defence rules to thwart new types of attacks.

Firewalls are run before any code on your website executes to ensure that bad requests are filtered out, once they hit the firewall they cannot get through to the website.

Thanks to WordPress firewalls millions of attacks are prevented every single day.

Firewalls have become so good that you might even be called crazy for not using one.

In the below infographic we will walk you through the different kinds of firewalls, why you should use a firewall and we’ll even show you how you can implement either of the top WordPress firewalls on your website today.
