Choosing the right publishing software can often be an intimidating process, especially if you are not an internet wizard. With all of the different options, solutions and platforms, it’s pretty easy to get overwhelmed.
At Lime Communications, we consistently turn to WordPress as our content management system of choice, and for good reason. WordPress and a mature and extremely stable piece of software that has proven itself time and time again.
WordPress is the most widely used CMS (content management system) software in the world and it powers more than 23% of the top 10 million websites, giving it an estimated 60% market share of all sites using a CMS.
As WordPress currently powers 23% of the web, the platform’s security is constantly under scrutiny. WordPress has long been a favourite target of hackers and spammers who want to get the most return on their efforts. Since the the platform powers millions of websites, a critical vulnerability with a popular plugin or WordPress core can affect a large chunk of the web in a short amount of time.
The WordPress security white paper was released this week to help the public learn more about the core software security. Many consultants have had the experience of clients who are considering WordPress but are wondering if it’s secure. This document was created both for decision makers who are evaluating WordPress and developers who are building on top of the software.
If you are deciding if WordPress is a good option for your next project, this paper will help you understand (on a technical level) just how secure this platform really is.
