As an Enterprise client, security is constantly evolving and dependent on the type of WordPress installs you have. Do you want to build that expertise in house and try to keep up or do you want a dedicated team to do it? Having internal security experts is helpful, but owning a large numbers of sites, the sheer scale demands that you have a resource partner to help 24/7.
Rainmaker Digital, formerly known as Copyblogger, started as a simple one-man blog. Today, it has grown into a digital commerce company with more than 200,000 unique customers and has become successful by creating useful content, smart copywriting, and exceptional products and services. Rainmaker is a managed hosting provider in the WordPress ecosystem and known mostly for its premium theme marketplace, StudioPress and its design framework, Genesis. More than 433,000 websites use the StudioPress product line – from large brands like Dollar Tree, to small independent blogs like WPBeginner.com.
Sucuri’s co-founders connected with the Rainmaker hosting team back in 2011. They became one of Sucuri’s first hosting partners when Sucuri provided remediation and monitoring for their customer websites. Since there was history with Sucuri and the Genesis Theme by StudioPress (owned by CopyBlogger, as was Web Synthesis) all parties were eventually introduced. Sean Jackson, CFO of Rainmaker Digital told us about his experience with Sucuri.
Recognizing that increased malicious bot traffic could lead to security issues, Sean took a proactive approach to website security. As his network of sites grew, hackers were bound to scan for weaknesses in his environment. This understanding lead Sean to find a solution.
A core component of managed website hosting is security. And when it comes to WordPress, security is a major concern since many website owners often run outdated versions of WordPress. While Sean’s team was able to provide a secure hosting environment at the application level, they needed a solution that was both proactive and reliable in identifying and virtually patching security issues within WordPress installations.
When Rainmaker created their hosting group, research went into finding a solid website security company. This spared the team at Rainmaker Digital in having to build their own monitoring application. The cost and complexity of provisioning and maintaining was far too high and not a key component in their core operations.
There were no other options like Sucuri. So the choice was easy. Without Sucuri, our costs would have increased and our ability to provide comprehensive managed solutions for WordPress hosting customers would not be as robust.
With that, Rainmaker signed up for Sucuri’s Monitoring service to detect potential threats to any of their websites and unlimited malware removal in the event of an incident.
Overall, what Sean values most is the response time in mitigating potential threats as well as the partnership with Sucuri that has developed over the years.
We consider Sucuri and our relationship with the team an important part of our overall operation. As one of the first customers, we have seen the Sucuri operation grow and mature over the years and have been impressed with the commitment to continue their core focus of providing comprehensive security solutions for WordPress. There is no question that Sucuri is the leader in its space and provides the most comprehensive approach to securing WordPress.
The responsiveness of the team is exceptional and having Sucuri as a partner in our effort allows us to stay competitive while meeting the ever-changing needs of our WordPress hosting customers.
