Malware is most commonly injected by exploiting security vulnerabilities. Patchstack detects those vulnerabilities and automatically applies virtual patches that provide highly targeted, lightweight and effective way to hold off attacks to prevent any malware to get inside.
Malware scanners in the other hand scan for already injected malware which means the web application has already been compromised and infected which also requires a thorough clean-up. While having regular malware scans is important to cover your back, it’s always better to prevent malware infections in the first place.
We encourage pairing Patchstack with other security tools, such as WPVivid or UpdraftPlus for backups and WPUmbrella or ManageWP for uptime monitoring. You may also check with your hosting service provides whether they offer pluginless server-side backups.
The free version of Patchstack does not run anything aside from scheduled tasks on your website, so there will be no noticeable difference. The paid version does run several tasks on each page load but based on tests from us and from our customers we have seen that Patchstack does not affect your website’s performance in any significant or noticeable way. In fact, a test done by one of our users indicated that Patchstack is up to 10x lighter than competing security services.
