Industry Analyst & Strategist
There have been a ton of announcements regarding acquisitions, partnerships, and more. I thought I’d pick this one up for two reasons, one and a disclosure, I am the Director of WordPress at Cloudways, and two, it’s a bit of work I’m very glad we’ve been able to make it happen since it contributes back to the WordPress community and project.
From the Cloud7 post, Cloudways partners with WordPress security tool provider Patchstack: “Cloudways is releasing WordPress command-line interface (WP-CLI) packages designed by Patchstack that will be available for everyone to use as open-source. WordPress users can utilize these packages to ensure security on websites through vulnerability scanning and patching. Patchstack’s “Red Team,” a community of independent security researchers devoted to building a safer web, will be working in tandem with both companies to report security vulnerabilities in WordPress plugins and themes. Together they’ll help software vendors address security issues before they can pose a risk to users and the public.”
