Presslabs is a secure made-to-measure hosting infrastructure, augmented by WordPress Intelligence
for the most complex website setups.
A regular in our testing, this is the first year PressLabs jumped up to compete in the Enterprise tier. And they did fantastic. 100% uptime. Almost no errors on Load Storm and a perfect Load Impact test. They even had the best rating on their SSL certificate. Great to see Presslabs jump up to play with the biggest boys and earn a Top Tier performance award.

Using purchased plugins or themes rises the risk of vulnerabilities.
Renew subscriptions to be able to always keep the commercial code up-to-date.
Code snippets inserted in your site’s source code expose your visitors, in case of intrusion.
Reduce to a minimum the amount of external calls and review periodically your site code for outdated references.
The more code you have, the more potential security risks may arise.
Keep open-source plugins, by all means, up-to-date.

Always work with highly trusted ad networks.
Don’t authorize access to open sessions in browsers while logged in on dashboards.
Consider encrypting your storage and use strong passwords.
Control the access to your site. If given to the disloyal people, your site may get harmed.
