Joomla Security Update
We have been using Mambo to create websites since 2003 and were among the first ones to jump on Joomla bandwagon in September 2005. Joomla! is a content management system software for web sites, completely written in PHP language. It is released on a GNU GPL v.2 open source license and it is in constant development under the leadership of Open Source Matters, a non profit developers’ association.
Although Joomla! is unanimously considered one of the most reliable CMS it is very important, for the safety of your web site to keep it constantly updated. But this is not the only thing you need to do, we can do for you an in-depth Joomla Security Audit of your site, to locate and seal security gaps. You can have many of them, from vulnerable extensions used to inproper server settings. Let us find those for you before hackers will discover them!
If you do not have the time, the interest or the knowledge to keep your web site updated, you can subscribe to a “Joomla Security Update*” plan with us for a fixed price of just 250 € (approx. $333) per year. Our team will keep your website (both Joomla and add-ons) updated for you reducing the possibility of attack from hackers. An in-depth Joomla Security Audit and hardening your Joomla install is part of the process. We use a mix of free Joomla components and a series of "best practices" to make your site hacker-proof. If we consider, that would be recommended, we will also will offer our counseling service regarding purchase, install and use of security related commercial add-ons. Also, during the contracted period, if any security incident occurs, we will clean up and restore your site in shortest possible time without any extra charge.
We must remind you furthermore that Joomla now comes in the 3.8 version (after a short period of transition via versions 1.6 and 1.7, and a longer period spent in the 2.5 family) and that from April 2012 they are not releasing any new updates for the 1.5 version. Joomla 2.5 was supported until the end of 2014, when the new Joomla 3.5 family has take it's place. Upgrading your existing Joomla 2.5 sites to Joomla 3.* (or other STS - Short Term Support - releases) is not necessary, but we urge you to upgrade-migrate your existing Mambo, Joomla 1.0, Joomla 1.5, Joomla 1.6 or Joomla 1.7 sites to the latest available Joomla 2.5 version. This package does not cover these migration, but you can contact us to find out what are our offerings regarding these migrations.
Therefore we recommend, for those who have not done it yet, to consider seriously upgrading your Joomla web site made with the 1.5 or older versions to the latest version of the CMS. For further information or for a quotation on the effective cost of this operation contact us using the form in the “Contact Us” section.
While no one can guarantee you won't be hacked in the future, our Joomla Security Update service helps reduce the risk of future attacks, and helps you recover faster (and less expensively) if one ever does occur.
If you are in emergency, and your site is under attack, or it is allready hacked, check our Joomla Site Dehacking service!
Keep your site clean, up and running with minimal effort!
* The Joomla Security Update pagkage covers only upgrades WITHIN the existing Joomla major versions (for example upgrading from Joomla 1.5.14 to Joomla 1.5.26 - the latest release from Joomla 1.5 version), and not the MIGRATIONS between major versions. If purchase of commercial components will be needed, the price will be added to the final invoice. If you need more services, than those covered by this package, you should consider upgrading to our Joomla Support Services or to use our Pay-as-you-go service.
