Spurred by the increasing demands for digital acceleration and cost efficiency, mid-market and enterprise businesses are increasingly turning to WordPress. Because WordPress is open source, it can be a common target for hackers and requires meticulous management to effectively protect. Businesses require assurance that their selected WordPress platform partner has strong security measures and controls in place to enable their customers and site visitors’ protection while running their websites at peak performance.

Customers can now have even greater confidence in WP Engine and the company’s enterprise-grade security solutions, with the ISO 27001:2013 certification adding to its SOC 2 Type II Report in 2020.

"Security is critical for all organizations leveraging WordPress to build their digital presence from SMB to Enterprise," said Ramadass Prabhakar, SVP of Engineering at WP Engine. "We're proud to provide businesses the peace of mind that comes with highly respected security standards like SOC-2 which we earned in 2020, and now the internationally esteemed ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification."

ISO 27001:2013 is an information security standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards, and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). WP Engine’s certification was issued by A-LIGN, an independent and accredited certification body based in the United States on successful completion of a formal audit process. This certification is evidence that WP Engine has met rigorous international standards in ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the WP Engine hosting platform including managed WordPress hosting, enterprise WordPress, and headless WordPress platform Atlas.
