Backup to Cloud Pro
First things first: You have to keep your data safe.
The popular Backup to Cloud Pro extension allows you to keep your backups safely in the cloud of your choice: AmazonS3, Google Drive, SFTP Backup, Dropbox, DigitalOcean Spaces, or MicrosoftOneDrive. These backups can be scheduled to repeat automatically, so you don’t have to do a thing. From a security perspective, this extension is a great place to start.
ImunifyAV & Imunify360
Two great products from one powerful security giant. Imunify provides the best immunity (pun intended) against viruses, adware spyware, trojans, and worms.
With ImunifyAV, you can equip your site with the essentials for combatting various threats in real-time, keeping your sites locked and closely monitored. It also smartly manages reputation, blacklists, and malware cleanup.
Upgrading to Imunify360 packs in even more security features to ensure the best, automated system tracking your sites. It includes everything you get in ImunifyAV, plus additional firewall software, hardened PHP, some integrations with backup, and more. It is the complete security detail you need to keep your inventory safe without a fuss.
Plesk Email Security
Moving on to your mailing. If you want to safely manage your mailing system on the Plesk control panel, Plesk Email Security is the place to start.
Spam can be a real nuisance, and viruses can present a real threat to your privacy and data. With this extension, advanced anti-spam filters keep spam and ham under control server-wide. Even more importantly, the pro version allows you peace of mind with antivirus technology designed to recognize and learn about harmful content. With this tool scanning all emails, managing DNS blacklists, and blocking unwanted content, you can start using Plesk for email too without a worry.
Now it’s time to keep the safety of your OS in check.
Web developers know that the integrity of your kernel is paramount. So this extension in the Plesk catalog, KernelCare, does exactly what it says on the tin: it takes care of your kernel and thereby protects Linux servers against vulnerabilities.
Updates are checked every few hours, and can take place without rebooting the server. This stops service interruptions happening due to server downtime, and the extension monitors this uptime too. This security patching is a web developer’s dream, as it works on a live site automatically without causing anything to go offline.
