CU*Answers Web Services improves security on all hosted sites with WordFence

GRAND RAPIDS, MI (May 8, 2018) — CU*Answers Web Services recently upgraded all hosted WordPress sites to premium licenses of WordFence at no additional cost to hosting.

David Damstra, VP of marketing and manager of the web service team, said: “We take security very seriously. Upgrading all of our website hosting clients to the premium version of WordFence adds yet another layer of protection to help defend websites against the continuous scans and attacks that exist on the open Internet.”

Mark Maunder, CEO Defiant, the creators of WordFence added: “Defiant is delighted to partner with CU*Answers to help secure and protect their sites with Wordfence. As the premier provider of WordPress security, Wordfence protects over two million sites worldwide, and we’re happy to have CU*Answers as a part of the Wordfence network.”

The WordFence upgrades were rolled out in late April to existing hosted websites and new website launches will be upgraded when they go live. This security upgrade is an important layer in CU*Answers’ defense in depth stance.
