Launched in early 2014, Patchman was created to simplify Website Security for web hosting providers. Patchman recognized that abuse was a huge time drain in the company. Customers wouldn't keep their CMS up to date, and the resulting security vulnerabilities were being exploited at a rapidly growing pace to abuse the server's resources for spam runs, DDoS attacks and more. This had to stop, but it was a losing battle to get customers to update. So Patchman designed a solution to proactively patch CMS vulnerabilities automatically, while cutting costs and increasing customer happiness. Say hello to Patchman.
We at JustHostMe® take Website Security as an utmost priority, therefore Patchman is automatically included in all of our superfast UK web hosting plans free of charge - forever. That's a guarantee. We only patch the specific security vulnerabilities and won't touch anything else. In comparison, updating the CMS as a whole usually results in a broken website due to plugins and themes depending on a specific version of the CMS. New vulnerabilities are regularly found in CMS's like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal. Patchman extracts the security fixes from new releases and backports them to all earlier versions. Safely patching your websites with confidence.
