How Secure is My Website on a Wix Platform?
Updated: Jun 10
Wix Security is Built right into Your Website
As a small business, you need the strongest protection to guard your website against malware, hacking, and fraud. A team of experts and the latest security features back CIS Agency's Wix Platform-powered sites.
Our Wix Platform Websites are Made with Security in Mind
You can be confident in the safety of your website because the best security practices are followed throughout the development process. Backed by AWS hosting plans, Wix continuously monitors and protects all websites.
Know Your Important Information is Protected
Your website's data is encrypted using the highest industry standards. Wix's encryption ensures that none of your visitor's private information falls into the wrong hands.
Accept Online Payments Securely (e-commerce, booking, or event websites)
Wix websites meet Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS), so your customers can make online payments securely and feel confident that their financial info will stay private.
Work Safely with Third-Party Vendors
Wix's strong Third-Party Risk Management program helps you avoid potential cybersecurity risks from outside vendors and service providers. Some vendors are not compatible with Wix Websites, often due to a lack of security.
Wix Conducts 24/7 Monitoring to Give You Peace of Mind
Wix constantly watches for threats to your website security using a variety of approaches, including machine learning, an expertly-staffed Security Operations Center (SOC), and independent security researchers.
What this Means for You
Denial of Service (DDoS) Attacks that prevent legitimate customers from using your website are quickly detected and stopped.
System Information and Events Monitoring (SIEM) allows any threats to be found and resolved by the SOC team.
Data analysis backed by machine learning detects suspicious changes in activity.
The Bug Bounty Program reveals potential weaknesses before they can be exploited by challenging experts to "hack" the platform.
Wix Steps in Quickly When a Threat is Detected
Even with the best protection, security threats can still happen. Wix's team is trained to respond to these situations and help your business stay running no matter what.
Wix trains teams to respond to security threats efficiently.

Why should I worry about cybersecurity?
Cybersecurity keeps your website running, accessible, and safe for visitors. Without it, criminals can attack business websites using malware and other software designed to steal sensitive information, hijack payments, or prevent visitors from using your site. Strong security allows visitors to complete transactions and share information safely so that you can continue providing services and products.
How is my website protected?
Wix uses encryption to secure your sensitive data. Encryption is a method of protecting information by converting it into code. That way, it's useless to would-be thieves and only accessible to authorized people. Wix protects data in transit (data being moved from one place to another, such as over the internet in email communication) using HTTPS, TLS 1.2 and above, and SSL, all protocols designed to transport data securely. Data is stored (data at rest) is encrypted using AES-256, an advanced encryption system.
To show that the website is secure, each Wix site includes a security certificate. Look for the little lock symbol to the left of the website address at the top of your internet browser to view the certificate.
To ensure financial transactions can be conducted safely through your website, Wix consistently meets the high standards of the PCI. This organization sets the requirements for safely processing payment card data. Wix also constantly scans your website for threats and has a team ready to deal with potential problems.
What else can I do to safeguard my information and accounts?
Protecting the login information for your website and any other accounts you create online is essential. One step that can help is creating strong passwords with multiple characters, numbers, and symbols and using a unique password for each account you have. Two-step verification can make your login even more secure by requiring a code sent to your email or phone number to access your account. You can also control who has access to the data on your site.
