After some difficulties with Cloudflare, we have spoken now with Sucuri (https://sucuri.net/). They offer malware removal, website firewall (providing DDoS protection among other things, requires DNS redirection to point to their firewalls) and site scanning (via local agent). All features independent (we can offer all or some).
We are thinking that a better approach to solving our customers problems when it comes to security and performance will be to offer (as add-ons) Sucuri (security centric and very focused on our most common apps) and MaxCDN (pure CDN focused on performance).
Any one has had experience with Sucuri? We have already tested (and in talks with them) and looks very promising.
Let us know thoughts on this (Sucuri + MaxCDN) approach (vs Cloudfront). We know this is well overdue and want to get it rolling.
Is there any way to automatically update our version of W3TC to the fix-W3TC version that and admin commented below will be deployed? I have a lot of sites to apply it to, FTPing the files will take ages.
I had a tech support agent disable W3TC on all of my applications last week. I was having troubles with sites not loading properly, white screens, etc.
His response? All issues were caused by W3TC, and he thinks it's because I was on PHP7, which is incompatible without a half dozen file edits of plugin code. (I was one PHP7 for weeks prior to the errors, however).
But once he disabled it, all sites went back to normal.
How is it that a preinstalled plugin that's deemed crucial for varnish to work doesn't even function with PHP7, which is becoming standard?
+3 votes to drop W3TC.
For the last couple of month we have been doing preliminary work on this. We are working on a cluster like solution that will provide high availability and easy scalability while offering a high degree of control and customisation. We expect to have an alpha version available at the end of the second quarter.
Will keep you posted.
