Continuing with our #SmallBusinessWeek celebration, today the spotlight is on how Jetpack protects your business site from unwelcome attention and, more crucially, how using Jetpack means you can recover from problems.
How Does Catastrophic Site Failure Occur?
Day by day, week by week, month by month, if a building is not maintained cracks will appear, rust will take hold, and eventually, the roof will cave in when you least expect it to.
A website is not much different. The consequences will be less dramatic but no less real.
If content, comments, code, passwords, and plugins are not being regularly tested, audited, cleaned, and updated cracks will appear in the form of vulnerabilities and spam. The metaphorical roof will “cave in” when your website security is breached and hackers gain access to your site dashboard, content, and user data. It only needs to happen once for your hard-won reputation to be undermined.
Needless to say, it is much cheaper in the long run to keep the roof in good shape than deal with the fallout and expense of rebuilding.
The Jetpack Advantage
Jetpack has both free and paid services that maintain your site for you and provide you with an “insurance policy” should something go wrong.
These are the benefits you will experience:
- Prevention (much better than cure).
Jetpack protects your site from brute force attacks (free), provides secure authentication with WordPress.com accounts (free), automatically updates your plugins (free), and monitors your site every 2 minutes for downtime (free). Paid customers are protected from spam and affiliates links that aim to steal traffic and undermine your brand.
- Daily code audits and scans.
Premium plan customers benefit from automatic, daily scans of their entire site code for suspicious code. Jetpack looks for and identifies known security threats from the thousands in our regularly updated library. Professional plan customers also benefit from automated fixes not just notifications.
- A backup plan.
All our paid plans, starting from just $39 per year, provide you with the ultimate backup plan: daily, automated, and unlimited storage backups of your entire site with the ability to restore at the push of a button. Professional plan customers also benefit from real-time backups.
- And a fallback plan.
If all else fails, you can rely on our team of WordPress experts. Priority support, available to all paid customers, gets you personalized assistance with restoring or migrating your site, dealing with identified threats, and other website security issues and best practices.
