WordFence offers free security audits to K-12 public schools using WordPress

Know a K-12 public school using WordPress?

Wordfence is offering free site security audits and site cleaning for public and government-funded schools, now available worldwide. (The original announcement said U.S. only, but apparently they’ve extended it.) Check out their announcement, and please share this offer with a state-funded school, anywhere in the world, that could benefit from their services.

Whitehouse.gov uses WordPress

The big buzz in the WordPress community this month is that the new administration is using WordPress to serve Whitehouse.gov.

And while you and I probably don’t have anywhere near the manpower behind our sites that the Federal Government can muster to keep one of the most visible – and probably one of the most attacked – websites on the internet safe from all manner of security threats, it’s reassuring to know that they trust it enough for something this important.

So rest assured that YOU have made a good choice in using WordPress.

Is WordPress perfect? Definitely not – no computer program is. Does it hit that sweet spot of balance between ease of use, flexibility, security, and cost? I’d say yes.
