Hindsight Is 20/20
In 2013 I had an entire hosting account full of WordPress websites hacked.
I was the Chief Technical Officer and Head Administrator for a large criminal justice system for 10 years. I had a decade long run with no successful breaches of a pretty big target, but when it came to my small personal sites… I got lax. I figured I was pretty small potatoes and therefore was not a desirable target. Boy was I wrong!
The hacker got in through an un-patched plugin and was then able to gain control of all the sites hosted on that hosting account. It took months of dealing with Google and preparing disavow lists, setting up 301 re-directs etc. before Google would even agree to index some of those sites again.
The truth of the matter is, that it all happened because of improper maintenance. In my case, the breach would not have happened if I had just kept the offending plugin updated.
I decided at that point to build a system that would protect my sites so I would never have to go through that again. No protection system can be perfect because new exploits are found every day so I knew my system would have to contain an automatic backup just in case. I had to recover systems after Hurricane Katrina where the backups had been destroyed, so I wanted to include a redundant cloud location for the backups in the event of natural disasters.
I have been using this system since early 2014 with great success. I have added my regular clients to the system and saved myself a lot of headaches. Now I am offering the same peace of mind to you.
Here’s how it works..
1. We add a well known and trusted network level monitoring software.
2. We add software exploit protection to block software hacks the network level monitor might not catch. This includes a known hacker IP blacklist that is updated daily.
3. We install a monitoring plugin that reports any needed plugin and theme updates and handles the update installations. This software also reports abandonware plugins that are not being maintained so you can find secure replacements.
4. We then set up automatic backups of the entire site to Amazon S3 Storage. If you ever have a problem, your site can be restored in minutes.
For those that need or want it, hosting with cpanel access is included.
So finally there is
