Joomla Hosting Reviews ( published their interview with SiteGround CEO, Tenko Nikolov about recent security procedures on their servers. Joomla Hosting Reviews asked Tenko about how SiteGround stays informed, security enhancements made, how they are implemented, and how they protect against compromised accounts.

According to Tenko, SiteGround stays on top of the latest security threats daily. He said, “In order for us to stay on top of that constant security battle, we have a full team of system administrators that do their homework and read every single day about new threats and vulnerabilities.”

Tenko said SiteGround continually improves and upgrades their servers so they are the most secure in the industry. He said, “SiteGround is one of the pioneers in terms of security in a shared hosting environment. We were the first to implement a successful Chroot mechanism (also known as account isolation) to all our shared hosting servers.”

When asked how are security fixes implemented Tenko replied, “All security measures we do are done on a global level - meaning they are applied to each and every account we have. The customers don't have to do anything in order to get the new and more secure environment.”

SiteGround protects against compromises by keeping accounts isolated should events arise. Tenko said, “... since we’re always proactive about such problems and try to think out-of-the box for a solution, we created our own virtual environment for every shared server. An environment much more secure than any other shared host had implemented before.”
