If it were not for seeing the great value we can provide in quickly resolving hacking situations that have gone on for weeks or months, we likely wouldn’t have anything to do with the security industry, since it is such an awful industry, which seems to be largely built around taking advantage of people. One reoccurring example of that is that those in the security industry promote leaving websites insecure as security, instead of telling people what would actually keep websites secure (which doesn’t involve the services they are selling). As yet another example of that, here is how GoDaddy sells people on a security service that they charge up to 29.99 a month for:
Complete protection for complete peace of mind.
Website Security powered by Sucuri is advanced protection made simple. There’s no software to install, daily security scans run automatically and if there’s ever an issue our auto removal tools can’t fix, our security experts will repair it manually – no matter how long it takes and at no additional cost to you.
By repairing the issue, they are talking about cleaning up a hack, which shouldn’t happen since the website is supposed to be protected.
Also of note, with the claims made in that quote, is that our experience from often being brought in to re-clean websites after their security division, Sucuri, fails to get the job done, is that sometimes they will keep doing incomplete cleanups and in other instances they won’t come back in and will falsely claim that a website is clean when it isn’t. In either case what they don’t do is attempt to properly clean up the websites in the first place, which would negate the need for even discussing repeated cleanups.
A Better Alternative to Sucuri
If you have a website that needs to be cleaned up from malware or another type of hack, we provide a better alternative to using Sucuri, where we actually fully and properly clean up the website.
