VaultPress: First Golden Tickets

Very exciting news that invites to VaultPress — a subscription-based protection, security and backup service for WordPress blogs and sites — are now starting to be sent out.

Over the weekend we started to trickle out the first Golden Ticket invites to VaultPress. This means that if you’re on the list you now have a semi-random chance of being one of the first people who can sleep more soundly at night because of VaultPress.

If you didn’t receive your invite yet, there is a way to possibly get one more quickly:

If you’d like to move ahead in the line, write a blog post about why you want to use VaultPress and link it here, or tweet why you need your site protected by VaultPress and use the hash tag #vaultpress.

Introducing VaultPress

We’re excited to announce the beta program for VaultPress, Automattic’s new service for protecting your WordPress-powered blogs and sites. Learn more about VaultPress and apply for the private beta at VaultPress.com.

Here’s more about the vision behind VaultPress from Matt Mullenweg’s announcement post:

The vision of VaultPress is to ensure that blogs and sites under its care are always completely secure, regardless of what happens. Today, this means every bit of content will be safe, from plugins and themes to the smallest comment or post revision, with WordPress-aware, real-time, multi-cloud backups. This is some of the most advanced technology I’ve seen interact with WordPress.

In the future, if your site is tampered with in any way, we’ll know within minutes and can take appropriate steps. The VaultPress core engine will be able to protect you against zero-day security vulnerabilities by updating your blog with hot-fixes, even while you sleep.

We built VaultPress to take the worry out of managing WordPress. We hope you’ll check out the beta and let us know what you think.
