Is your Joomla Website Secure?
Joomla is an open source website development platform that enables you to build a highly dynamic website.· Like all applications, security fixes and update patches are released to keep your application safe.· One of the challenges is keeping up to date with those frequent patches and security fixes. We apply core Joomla updates to our customers websites at no charge.· We want to keep our servers safe as well as your website.
Your Joomla website is made up of a core installation.· Most customers have additional extensions for components, modules and plugins.· These extensions need to be updated as well.· We would be happy to put together a quote for you on what extensions have updates available.· Then once reviewed and agreed, implement those updates for you.
It is recommended to look at your added on extensions on a regular basis to see if there has been an update released.
Not all updates are security driven.· Some have improved feature sets or compatibility features.· These may not be necessary to update, but you should look at that option.
- All currently developed and supported versions of Joomla will be actively monitored by the JSST.

- Joomla 2.5.x (until December 2013)
