Alert Logic has released a new offering in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) marketplace - Alert Logic Managed Rule Groups for AWS WAF - Virtual Patches for WordPress. This new offering provides you with the coverage you need to protect your WordPress website in the critical time between when a patch is released and when you can test and successfully apply a traditional patch.
With Alert Logic Virtual Patches for Wordpress, you can add preconfigured conditions to your Web Access Control Lists(ACLs) when using AWS WAF. Our virtual patches will protect against exploitable vulnerabilities for the WordPress content management system (CMS) and plugins, including those listed in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) database.
Note: The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures list is maintained by the Mitre Corporation.
