Whether you have an eCommerce store, write about your favorite topics online, or promote services on your site, backups are absolutely critical. They provide incredible peace of mind — if your WordPress site is ever hacked or if it goes down for any reason, you can quickly and easily restore it in full.
Until now, Jetpack has offered daily backups as an option for site owners. And while this is a great step to protect your site, Jetpack’s real-time backups are the best way to get complete peace of mind. They save a copy of your site each and every time a change is made — a page is updated, a post is added, a setting is tweaked, or a product is purchased — all behind the scenes without requiring you to lift a finger. That way, you know that you’ll never lose a second of your hard work or a single customer order.
And we believe so strongly that every WordPress site should have real-time backups that we’re making them even more affordable and accessible.
That’s why we’re now including real-time backups in each of our Backup and Security plans.

Jetpack is acquiring WPScan, a WordPress vulnerability database. WPScan is used across the WordPress ecosystem to learn about new vulnerabilities to WordPress core, themes, and plugins.
WPScan started as a simple Ruby script in 2011 to help identify vulnerabilities in self-hosted WordPress websites. The simple script matured into a large software project and gained popularity amongst the security and WordPress communities.
Vulnerabilities are sourced from around the web, as well as security researchers from both the community and WPScan. In 2021, WPScan was able to double the amount of vulnerabilities added to the database compared to 2020. In total, it has cataloged more than 23,000 WordPress vulnerabilities over the last 10 years.

For more than ten years, Jetpack has been regarded as the ultimate all-in-one toolkit for WordPress sites. With more than five million active installations, it provides a single plugin to make sites faster and safer, while providing more traffic. And it eliminates the need to search for dozens of different plugins, vet their quality, install them, make sure they don’t conflict, and remember to update them.
But we also appreciate that the WordPress community is incredibly diverse and that everyone’s needs are unique. Many developers and site owners asked for the flexibility to use specific components of Jetpack as part of their own, custom-built “tech stack” of plugins. We listened.
“This project came as a direct result of feedback from the community,” says Backup Team Lead William Viana. “We’ve gotten such a positive response about Jetpack Backup. But whenever we ask for suggestions, people always ask if they can install Backup by itself. Now, I’m excited to say you can.”
