Everyone can appreciate that security is a crucial aspect of a healthy website. At the most basic level, websites must have a current SSL certificate, ensuring that the site meets security standards. Hammersmith Support hosting clients enjoy an additional level of security from WP Engine called Global Edge Security.
What Is Global Edge Security?
Global Edge Security is a sophisticated security solution that keeps a website secure, while also delivering the benefit of a faster experience for site visitors. Global Edge Security is superior as it is able to utilize a global network to “detect and mitigate security threats at the edge of the network before they can reach the website.”
What Is Involved?
According to WP Engine, Global Edge Security provides:
- Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Protection: WP Engine’s advanced DDoS protection can mitigate even the largest and most complex attacks, ensuring that websites remain online and accessible to visitors.
