Website Backups have become a required part of modern website strategies. The sad truth is that websites today are threatened by hackers wanting to deface web pages, servers that unfortunately go down and malware that’s always trying to hijack your website traffic.
When trouble happens, fixing the problem can be very time and resource consuming. Sometimes the simplest solution is to restore your website to a known safe state using a Website Backup.
Introducing our Website Maintenance: Backup Package
Caveena Solutions is introducing our Website Maintenance: Backup Package specifically to address this need. With this package, your website will enjoy the safety of regular automated Website Backups for your peace of mind. On top of that, a copy of your Website Backups are stored off-site to further mitigate the risk of losing your website.
A while back iThemes reported they had to remove VirusTotal Malware Scanning from their iThemes Security WordPress plugin. They have just announced that the plugin will now use Sucuri’s SiteCheck Malware Scanner.
While Sucuri’s SiteCheck is available in both the free and Pro versions of iThemes Security, the Pro version allows for daily automated scanning. That’s a nice add-on, if you ask me.
This is a great addition to the iThemes Security plugin. However, my websites already use the Sucuri Security WordPress Plugin which incorporates Sucuri’s SiteCheck (albeit scans have to be done manually) so this is a bit redundant for my needs. Having a different malware scanner would help cover more bases.
For alternative malware scanners, there’s always StopTheHacker. That service was StopTheHacker was acquired by CloudFlare last year so perhaps more integration is in the works.
