WordPress Security- Two-Factor Authentication

Two-Factor Authentication To Enhance WordPress Security | Kinetic Knowledge Monmouth County NJ

Two-Factor Authentication To Enhance WordPress Security | Kinetic Knowledge Monmouth County NJSecurity concerns have grown for all website owners and WordPress is no exception. With a good host and management plan in place WordPress can be as reliable a platform as there is available. Precautions such as adding two-factor authentication can make a dramatic difference.

What Is Two-Factor Authentication?

Simply put, Two- Factor Authentication is where two forms of identity are used to verify a user. During two-factor authentication a person is asked to provide a combination of something they know, something they have or something they are. A common non web example of two factor authentication is providing both a debit card (something you have) and a pin number (something you know) to make a purchase. Traditionally on the web, authentication is simply entering something you know (a username and password). With two-factor authentication, an extra layer of security is added by requiring additional information beyond simply what you know. This makes it much more difficult for your identity to be compromised as it needs to be breached in more than one area, making the theft much more difficult to attain.

How Two-Factor Authentication Works With WordPress Websites

When two-factor authentication is put into action on a WordPress website, more often than not it will work by requiring the username and password, and then utilizing an app on the user’s phone to generate a code, which then needs to be entered on the website. This represents both something you know (your password) and something you have (access to the code). To be able to steal your identity, a hacker would need to both know your password, and have access to the security code. There are many plugins available to implement two-factor authentication, but not all are equal. A reliable, secure, highly rated and regularly updated plugin must be chosen to protect the security of your site (and this goes for all plugins, always)! To avoid making the wrong choices and getting caught without the right security, make sure you are hosted with a dedicated WordPress Host with a reliable management plan and an Advanced WordPress Website Security Plan, because two-factor authentication alone is not enough.

Tired Of Poor WordPress Host and Management? 

If you are tired of distant hosts, automated phone systems that waste your time, high employee turnover and/or an utter lack of knowledge for ( or interest in ) you and your business … well, than that is just a start for why having this type of WordPress Host and Management service will matter to your business!

WordPress itself, its themes and plugin applications all receive updates regularly in order to both advance the site’s software and to harden code against vulnerability to hack. Day in and day out we are contacted by business owners using WordPress who may host somewhere (?), but see no management (!). Worse, they have been hacked and need immediate help! Keep in mind, any update can clash or cause breaks so as managers we are set up to deal with all of that. What’s more, if updates are not being managed the site will become rapidly more vulnerable to hack and malware infusion – a business owner’s worst nightmare!
