(Ping! Zine) – ServInt, a pioneering provider of managed web hosting for businesses worldwide, today announced it will be a launch partner for the upcoming VaultPress backup and security scan service. Automattic will provide ServInt with a VaultPress “Golden Ticket Machine” providing beta access codes to ServInt customers running WordPress, allowing them access to the beta release. Golden Tickets also will provide ServInt customers with certain long-term discounts on VaultPress.
Automattic is the creator of the popular WordPress.com web hosting service and a contributor to the open source WordPress project. Together, WordPress.com and standalone WordPress power over 30 million blogs and sites.
VaultPress is a comprehensive security and backup service designed to provide real-time, continuous monitoring and backup of nearly every aspect of a user’s WordPress installation. VaultPress also scans WordPress installations in an effort to quickly identify potential security vulnerabilities. VaultPress offers a suite of features designed to help WordPress users make better use of their software and their server. In addition to the multiple layers of security and file recovery, VaultPress provides analytics to help bloggers better understand their workflow and concierge service should site restoration ever be necessary.
ServInt expects to offer VaultPress Golden Tickets to all WordPress users on its network. VaultPress users deploying ServInt’s industry-leading, server-wide backup system will have 12 recovery points for their server and web site – as well as the benefit of two experienced support teams.
“ServInt is a natural choice for us to partner with,” said Paul Kim, VP User Growth at Automattic. “VaultPress has been designed to give people who rely on their WordPress sites for their professional needs the peace of mind that comes with rock-solid security and backup. It’s some of the most advanced technology available for WordPress today, and we’re excited to make it available to ServInt’s WordPress customers.”
ServInt Founder and Chief Executive Officer Reed Caldwell said, “Secure and frequent backups are essential for any successful web-based business. For the thousands of WordPress bloggers on our network, the combination of ServInt’s powerful, free daily backup system and VaultPress’ comprehensive data redundancy create the best possible blog-security and backup solution.”
