Without noticing it, over time I ended up in a comfort zone because everything was working again and I thought I did not need to worry. I had not asked myself, am I sure everything is fine? If problems occured, could they be solved quickly?
Computer Solutions is a company based in Brazil that specializes in protection technology for electrical energy and energy efficiency. It operates mostly in the area of resale of uninterruptible power source (UPS) and batteries for UPSs.
Owner, Arnaldo Mefano, in addition to managing Computer Solutions, is 100% involved in maintaining the security of his site. He also has a personal digital marketing blog.
Everything was working perfectly – the Joomla website and the WordPress blog – all of them inside the csolutions.com.br domain.
On the Friday of Carnival, my Astral Hell began.
After receiving a warning that third parties were using the domain to send spam, the company in which Arnaldo hired hosting space suspended his domain, leaving his website and blog offline.
After two days offline, the domain was up and running, but still there were some restrictions.
The Joomla platform we were using had serious security holes.
Arnaldo decided to upgrade his Joomla platform to its newest version, only to discover that it wasn’t possible to migrate from the older to the latest version without losing the entire database.
Faced with several limitations, Arnaldo even thought that the best solution would be to develop a new site, using the updated version of Joomla.
This, however, would not be the best solution. Arnaldo did not have answer to when a new version is released in the future, would he lose everything again and have to develop a new website? He decided then to abandon this platform and migrate the company’s website to WordPress. In the meantime, other problems occurred, damaging the site and blog.
To his surprise, when requesting the restoration of all previously hosted content, Arnaldo faced a dreadful problem to overcome–the company’s website could be restored, but his blog was lost.
After contacting the hosting company many times, (still within the week of Carnival), the blog was finally restored and put back online, but Arnold’s astral hell was not over yet.
The site began sending spam emails again.
Imagine, on the eve of the Carnival your company website and respective blog blocked, offline!
Arnaldo’s site had been hacked and was sending out spam emails.
He decided to change hosting companies to have better service quality and also hire the protection service of the Sucuri Firewall.
Through research and indications we found out about Sucuri.
Arnaldo believes that safety is very important and should be carefully observed.
My site and my blog are my business and also where I enjoy and contribute disseminating useful information. My work cannot stop, especially because of intruders and unauthorized access.
Sucuri’s platform offers a complete security service and protects Arnaldo’s blog and website.
Keeping the site and blog platforms protected needs to be taken seriously.
After using Sucuri, invasion attempts and other problems have been properly blocked, ensuring the availability and security of his site.
The choice of using Sucuri services is due to their high quality and great reputation in the market. It is also an excellent cost benefit.
Arnaldo was very pleased with the protection of his site and visitors.
Now I have 100% availability, the site is up and running.
In addition, Arnaldo saw a considerable performance improvement. Arnaldo was so excited about Sucuri that he joined the referral program to spread the good news about it.
