CMS Security 2015: Top 5 Security Tools for WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla

WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla power three-fourths of the world’s CMS-based websites. A few simple steps will keep your CMS-powered website secure:

  • Keep your CMS software up-to-date. Immediately install all updates to core software and plug-ins. If you don’t visit your admin panel daily, schedule a reminder in your smartphone for updating your CMS regularly.

  • Perform regular backups. Backup your site and its database at least weekly, perhaps at the same time you check it for updates.
