Malcare differs from the other security plugins in that it offers a kind of hybrid cloud based model. The plugin is still running on your site (unlike something like Sucuri which is entirely cloud based), so traffic will get to the application. However they offload some of the more resource intensive parts of scanning and firewall operation to their own servers so as to not put unnecessary load on your servers.
The free version of the security plugin includes, but is limited to, regular scanning that detects and pinpoints threats and does it remotely. The free plan also includes Web Application Firewall protection every six hours, which safeguards websites against hackers, bots, and other threats. It does not include the additional features available in different package options, including scanning intervals, malware cleaning, and website management, with personalized customer support.
The paid version includes cleaning a hacked site, website hardening, website management, white-labeling, and creating regular backups.
MalCare markets itself as being a smart security plugin with intuitive features and laser-sharp discovery. The plugin prides itself in making its security operations as user-friendly as possible, with no technical knowledge required to use it.
MalCare can identify threats and data breaches in an exact locale and can remove them with one touch of a button. MalCare includes unlimited scans for all plans, a smart website firewall, login protection, website hardening, and complete website management. The developer built the algorithms and tools over three years of research and development to generate the security plugin. Yet you can easily manage all its features from a single dashboard.
Furthermore, MalCare provides immediate notification if a data breach has been made or malware has been detected. It is regularly checking the site and running scans for malicious activity from its own servers. In addition to the automated scans, ten manual syncs can be requested per day. Alerts are also sent out when malicious attempts to log in to the protected sites are made, or if the website goes offline for any reason, so it can be handled before impacting traffic. It offers the option to receive alerts automatically or manually. Additionally, MalCare logs all threats and malicious login attempts for review whenever convenient for the user.
MalCare has several different plan options to accommodate varying security needs. In addition to the free plan, the Personal program, priced at $99 for one year, offers protection for one website, and consists of unlimited automatic malware removal, automatic daily malware scans, and provides an intelligent website firewall. Moreover, it features login protection, website hardening, complete website management, and personalized support.
The next plan in line is the Small Business plan, priced at $259 per year. It offers all the features the Personal plan does, but for up to 5 total websites. After Small Business comes the Developers plan, which is $599 per year. In addition to the features of the Personal and Small Business plans, the Agency Plus plan covers 20 total websites and one additional team member. All MalCare plans offer 24/7 support, and they provide a 3x money-back guarantee in addition to the satisfaction guarantee. That means they will refund three times the money back if they cannot remove malware from the covered website. In addition, their 1-click instant malware removal is mentioned as the first WordPress plugin that will remove malware within 60 seconds with one click.
MalCare markets itself as providing simple and safe security for websites. It offers various plans that allow users and businesses to secure their sites as appropriate for them. The free version offers the main two protection components, while the four premium paid plans offer extended features. All programs are user-friendly and provide one-click malware removal.
