Web Security for us at CNP integrations is a top priority. Quick overview; we have partnered with the SecureLive.com to deliver a superior application layer security second to none and our hosting partners (RackSpace and Cloud Access) both do an excellent job of optimizing security at the server level. Our admin team keeps on their toes 24/7 to deliver responsive technical support and this makes for a best of bread solution for our clients.
We never set out to be in the hosting business but we we never fully satisfied with out of the box types of services in the marketplace so we built our own platform using a combination of the best providers and tools availalbe. We assume this responsibility to safeguard our customers web assets, this means we have to always be looking for the latest and best tools available for safeguarding our clients web assets. we strive to keep the bar high and maintain our edge for delivering superior solutions around the Joomla CMS platform.
With that said, when we run across a new tool worth mentioning I have to shout out a bit to let folks know since it only fuels better tools. As geeks we love our utility tools, don't we, because they save us time and frustration and often make us look like heros. :-)
As you may know there are a lot of Joomla 1.0 and 1.5 sites that need to be upgraded and with Joomla 3.x evolving as a stable platform there are even some 2.5 sites ready for upgrading. Hackers are having their heyday right now during this transitional period and causing a lot of havoc in the marketplace. We have been getting a lot of calls lately from folks ready to button down their sites, clean them up and upgrade them to a newer platform. With this in mind there has been a need in the market place for a tool that can quickly scan, identify vulnerabilities and assist with clean up and upgrading the security of Joomla portals.
I have to say the tool suite developed by Joomla guru Phil Taylor available at www.myjoomla.com stands out as a premium service. He has thought through the user experience effectively to simplify, educate and facilitate understanding a clear picture of potential issues with your sites. He continues to add new features, wizards, utilities and narrative that offer significant value to any Joomla administrator. It is seldom that I get so jazzed about such a suite of utilities but I have to give high kudos to this one.
It is one thing to have a great tool suite but it is yet another rarity to have such personalized and responsive service. I filled out a support form and Phil himself not only emailed me back right away but he jumped on live chat and we quickly resolved a simple tech issue.
