Professional Joomla Security Experts

If your Joomla powered website has been hacked - you need our dedicated de-hack service!

Security is an ever growing concern for website owners, especially websites that are powered by Content Management Systems such as Joomla or WordPress. Content Management Systems give you the power to manage a website with ease, but do so by utilising a large number of files that you place within your website. At present the Joomla 2.5 CMS provides you with 4,500+ files and 1,000+ folders. That's before you install any extensions.

Hackers are also able to download copies of these CMSs, which they examine in order to look for any vulnerabilities that will give them access to your web space. They will also look for a number of vulnerabilities within popular extensions, such as Akeeba Backup, JCE (Joomla Content Editor), YooTheme's ZOO, Kunena Forum etc (for more available extensions check the Joomla Extension Directory).

If your Joomla CMS (what we call the 'core') is out-of-date your website is much more likely to be compromised - either now or in the future!

Many website owners often forget about the 'nitty gritty' of running a website. They concentrate on adding/updating content and forget to update Joomla and any installed extensions until it's too late. Many of times we are contacted after a website has been hacked where the webmaster has forgotten to update the core and extensions. Some didn't know how to and some webmasters made changes to the core Joomla files which would have been overwritten with the update - editing 'core' Joomla files should never be done!

Dean Marshall Consultancy's team of professional Joomla security experts understand web technology. As experts in the Joomla CMS, you can trust us to help you with all of your website security needs. Contact us now for our Joomla security services and we could harden the security of your existing website, offer security advice about your server set-up and best practise for website administrators.

Our latest security testimonial

We retained Dean Marshall and his team to help us recover from a sophisticated hack. They were the 3rd organization we retained to provide assistance, the last one necessary and the only one that offered us with a permanent solution. They worked through the weekend to help us resolve the issue and were able to restore our website without loss of data. Most importantly, they provided clear, frequent communication in understandable terms and laid out a permanent plan to minimize future risk of attack. We highly recommend Dean and his team.
