Our New Anti-Bot AI Fights Brute-Force Attacks
It you run a well-known CMS like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal or Magento, you are very likely to face an average of 2-3 malicious login attempts by a bot each hour. When you multiply this by the number of all such sites out there, you will receive the enormously huge number of malicious bot traffic over the internet. During the last months we have been working on a new AI-based bot prevention system and it is now active on all our servers. It is already stopping millions of brute-force attacks each day, before they even reach our customers’ websites. Thus we minimise the chance of potential unauthorized logins and we effectively prevent bot traffic from wasting your server resources. Read more details on the blog.
Consider Two-Factor Login
Another useful measure you can personally take to protect yourself against hacking is two-factor authentication. At SiteGround we’ve long supported two-factor login into the User Area and hope to see more customers using it. You can read more about it in our tutorial and enable it from your User Area > My Details.
