    The upgrade is free for any ShopSite lease client or license owner running version 14 already. We do highly recommend this upgrade in order to have all of the latest features and up to date integration with third party services.

    Magento 2 Security Tips

    There are several recommendations for improving the security of any Magento 2 installation. These include:

    • Two factor authentication for admin
    • IP restricting admin URL and SSH access
    • Using SSH keys instead of passwords

     

    There are some two factor authentication extensions for Magento 2, or if you are running 2.4.x there is native support as well. If two factor isn’t a viable option for you, let us know what IP addresses you connect from and we can lock down both the admin and SSH to only allow connections from these IPs. Also, with respect to SSH, you should consider using SSH keys instead of passwords as they offer better security. Using them also allows you to provide access to third parties when needed and then simply removing their keys when they are done eliminates their access without you having to update any passwords.

    Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about setting any of this up as helping you safeguard your data is of the utmost importance to us.

    WP/Woo Scanning Service

    You may recall from a previous newsletter that we were able to offer a scanning service from Sansec that looks for vulnerabilities in your Magento store. We are pleased to announce that we now offer a version of this scanner that can be used for any WordPress website. This is something we highly recommend for all websites using WordPress, particularly those running WooCommerce. This scanner scans all files, the database, and plugins looking for vulnerabilities and hacks. We have discounted the service by over 70% to $29/month for our hosted clients running WP. Drop us a note if you would like to take advantage of this special pricing and we’ll add it to your WP site.

    For more information on this scanner as well as details about the vendor, please reference:
