Sucuri offers unlimited malware removal in all Website Security Platform plans. Even if your website is reinfected, you will be able to open a malware removal ticket and Sucuri’s security analysts will clean your website. This includes automated cleanup, manual inspection, and a complete report of the quarantined files.

Sucuri does not charge extra for large websites, databases, or manual cleanups. Website availability is crucial to running a successful business so we want to make website security available to as many businesses as possible.
No matter how complex or difficult the malware removal process is, our security analysts will clean your website. Sucuri has a predictable pricing system based on the level of response required. The cost also includes one year of ongoing monitoring and protection to keep your website safe. For web professionals, Sucuri offers volume discounts and flexibility to protect your client projects.
Sucuri researchers work night and day to stay on top of new website threats. In 2018, the Sucuri Firewall successfully protected websites from 99% of zero-day vulnerabilities. These types of security flaws are not known to software developers, meaning that security patches aren’t available. Despite this, the Sucuri Firewall blocks the vast majority of these exploitation attempts.
The Sucuri Firewall is included in all plans. We are serious about performance so we use several techniques to make your site faster. Sucuri offers website protection and increased performance with Sucuri’s global Anycast content delivery network. The Sucuri CDN caches your website content automatically, increasing the website speed by over 70%.

ilacweb, Naime Yildirim
I tried to find some help, I tried to find a security company and a professional solution to websites regularly, with affordable payments. The two options that I found at first were not providing a security support for a term like one year. They were offering “cleaning” for one time. I thought these options would be temporary and this means that my website can be hacked again, then that would be frankly a waste of time and money for me. The third option that I found was thankfully, Sucuri.Read More
