Free Site Cleaning and Security Audits for K-12 Public Schools

Wordfence, the leading provider of WordPress security software and services, is currently offering free site cleaning and site security audit services to K-12 public/state-funded schools running a WordPress website. We can help if you think the website is infected, or if you would like a credentialed security analyst to audit the site’s security. No credit card is needed and you have the option to have the free version of Wordfence installed on the site and configured.

With more students and teachers remotely connecting for education, the need for greater security awareness has never been greater. The risk to students, teachers, parents and administrators from malware infected sites interferes with the educational opportunities so needed during challenging times.

Wordfence is committed to helping to ensure schools providing public/government-funded education to the next generation can do so safely. Each Wordfence site cleaning/site security audit is valued at $490, however, Wordfence is currently offering this service free of charge to K-12 public/government-funded schools.
