Echo utlizing CodeGuard for automated website backup and monitoring

CodeGuard Logo

Its unfortunate the Internet isn’t always the safest place. Hackers, scam artists and “evil doers” are prevalent online. As web developers, we’re constantly looking for ways to make our websites as safe and secure as possible. Should a problem or attack occur, we understand the importance of having backup protocols in place so we can quickly restore the affected websites. 

We have recently invested in a great product called CodeGuard to help us backup and monitor our sites. With CodeGuard, our sites are automatically backed up on a daily basis. So should a problem occur, we can restore a website or database to any previous backup version. We can download a zip of the contents at any time, choose an automatic restore, or restore individual files and folders.

Additionally, CodeGuard helps us monitor our websites for suspicious activity. If CodeGuard detects a change we will receive notification letting us know what was added, modified, or deleted from a particular website. When you combine this 24/7 monitoring with the automatic backup, it’s a powerful combination that gives us peace of mind.  : )

To learn more about CodeGuard or other measures we have in place to monitor or protect our websites, please contact us.
