The Challenge

It is important to keep the site always running and safe from attacks. The site is built on WordPress. A hacked WordPress site can cause serious damage to your business revenue and reputation. Hackers can steal user information, passwords, install malicious software, and can even distribute malware to your users. Each week, Google blacklists around 20,000 websites for malware and around 50,000 for phishing.

A study found that nearly 20 percent of the 50 most popular plugins for the WordPress platform are vulnerable to common Web attacks. Worst, you may find yourself paying ransomware to hackers just to regain access to your website.

The Solution

The Website is being hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). While WordPress core software is very secure, and it’s audited regularly by hundreds of developers, there is a lot that can be done to harden your WordPress website.
WordPress also comes with thousands of plugins and themes that you can install on your website. These plugins and themes are maintained by third-party developers which regularly release updates as well.
These WordPress updates are crucial for the security and stability of your WordPress site. You need to make sure that your WordPress core, plugins, and theme are up to date.
The Solution also involves the WAF solution from Incapsula, which protect unauthorized access, use, alteration, complex attacks against WordPress, keeping your sites safe and online.
The Site is being routed through AWS Route53 and SSL Certificates are being installed to server traffic via HTTPS.
24x7 Monitoring, Backups, Plugin Updates, Security Patching.
For host-based security, Infraguard(scan and automatically install all missing patches) and Trend Micro Deep Security is being implemented.

How AWS services were used as part of the solution

Onboarding a WAF, gave Apoorva Foods the security they needed for the DDOS attacks, XSS scripting and SQL injections.
Deep Security Manager
Deep Security Manager gave them a central dashboard to manage a host defense system for its cloud infrastructure. It gives businesses power over how and where data is accessed and greatly reduces the complexity inherent in traditional key management solutions. Deep Security combines multiple protection modules, including anti-malware, IDS/IPS, integrity monitoring web application protection, log inspection, and firewall, in a single, centrally managed software solution, to provide agent-based or agentless protection.
SSL Implementation
SSL implementation encrypted their transactions and customer information pages to maintain the integrity. The outcome is having tighter controls on the website, handle sudden increases in web traffic very well.
VPS and Security Groups
Amazon VPC helps to provide the isolated Network. Security Group helps to control the incoming and outgoing traffic through specific ports.
AWS NACL provides protection at subnet level i.e. with Nacl we are controlling the network traffic for each subnet.
IAM granular policies are being implemented and keys are rotated on a regular basis.
AWS CloudTrail
AWS CloudTrail allows the compliance, and operational audit by keeping a track of all the actions performed by a user or role.
Amazon Cloudfront
Amazon CloudFront helps speed up the distribution of contents as it routes the user request to edge locations.
