VaultPress Announces New WordPress Backup Security ServicesMar 30th, 2010 | By James Lewin | Category: General, Podcast Hosting, Podcasting Software
Here’s how Mullenweg describes the service:
The vision of VaultPress is to ensure that blogs and sites under its care are always completely secure, regardless of what happens. Today, this means every bit of content will be safe, from plugins and themes to the smallest comment or post revision, with WordPress-aware, real-time, multi-cloud backups. This is some of the most advanced technology I’ve seen interact with WordPress.
In the future, if your site is tampered with in any way, we’ll know within minutes and can take appropriate steps. The VaultPress core engine will be able to protect you against zero-day security vulnerabilities by updating your blog with hot-fixes, even while you sleep.
VaultPress fills a huge hole for WordPress self-hosted sites. It remains to be seen how automated updates play with critical plugins. If VaultPress can deal with this issue in an elegant way, it could be hugely beneficial for bloggers and podcasters.
VaultPress is in beta now – see the beta application for details. VaultPress plans to charge around $10/month for the service.
