Automatic Protection

Automated vulnerability patching and malware removal.

Hosting providers suffer on a daily basis from the consequences of the many security vulnerabilities found in commonly used CMS's such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla.

Patchman detects these vulnerabilities and is able to safely patch them without assistance from your customer. Because of our unique approach, you can also be rest assured that websites will continue to function properly.

On compromised hosting accounts, Patchman detects uploaded malware and automatically quarantines it for you.

Customer Coaching

We believe that educating your customers is an important aspect to security.

Patchman makes it easy to set up automatic workflows to inform your customers of security incidents. For example, you could setup the following workflow:

  • On detection of a vulnerability, warn customer and educate how to resolve the issue.
  • After 2 days, if still unresolved, remind customer.
  • After 3 days, if still unresolved, automatically patch vulnerability and inform customer.
Start in 60 Seconds

Patchman was built with hosting providers specifically in mind.

It literally takes 60 seconds to start scanning for vulnerabilities and malware. Here's a few more examples of how we will make your life a lot easier:

  • Automatically integrates with cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin.
  • RPM and DEB packages for easy and standardized maintenance.
  • Scanning process optimized to be incredibly fast, light weight and distributed in larger environments.
  • Easy configuration and maintenance through web application.

"Being able to pro-actively mitigate abuse on our shared servers saves us time and money, as well as helping to keep the internet cleaner. Patchman fixed a problem that was causing us headaches."

Security Should be Stupid Simple

You and your customers have access to a super easy to use web application. For you, it's a piece of cake to set up, configure, monitor and maintain deployments from one to thousands of servers. Your customers get a private panel to review unresolved issues and fix them.


The Facts You Should Not Ignore

The following statistics and claims are based on third-party research and case studies with customers of Patchman.

Security Breaches Cost You Dearly

On a monthly basis, 1 to 5 percent of your websites are compromised. Hackers generally want to take advantage of your server's resources for spam runs, DDoS attacks, etc. However, it also exposes you to much more severe risks: root exploits, data loss, data theft, or worse. Each security breach costs you at least one to several hours in labour to resolve.

One in Two Websites is Vulnerable

According to W3Techs, approximately 34% of the web runs on WordPress, Joomla or Drupal. For average web hosting companies this number is actually much higher: 57%. Approximately 80% of these websites run an outdated version of their CMS. This leaves 46% of your websites exploitable through significant security vulnerabilities.

One in Three Customers Churns

According to research by StopBadware and Commtouch, 28% of webmaster of whose website was compromised considers moving to a new provider. Webmasters blame the provider for the compromise, are unhappy with the (lack of) support they receive, are not able to resolve the issue themselves or are simply fed up with it and quit.

Don't Take Our Word For It. Hear What Our Customers Say.

"One of the most time consuming problems we have had is dealing with old, vulnerable CMS and the fallout of customers sites being hacked. With Patchman this is a thing of the past, and long may it remain so."

Doesn't Patchman break my customer's website?

No - This is the unique part about Patchman. 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.

About Patchman, the Company

Patchman was built to scratch our own itch.

Launched in early 2014, Patchman was created to simplify security for hosting providers. We 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 we designed a solution to proactively patch CMS vulnerabilities automatically, while cutting costs and increasing customer happiness. Say hello to Patchman.
