Monitoring FAQ

Here are some FAQ regarding our Monitoring.

Why did my site get infected if I have your service?

Our regular plans offer malware remediation, meaning we will alert you if we detect anything malicious on your site and we will have access to clean it up once you submit a Malware Removal request. After the clean up is performed, reinfections should not happen if you have the firewall setup and our ‘after cleanup steps’ are followed, such as changing passwords and updating outdated software.

My site got infected and I didn’t receive any alerts.

This shouldn’t happen. Please make sure that you have properly enabled our Server Side Scanner. If it is properly set up, then check your spam box for the alert. If there is really nothing there, please open a ticket in our system and we’ll check this out.

I got a 500 internal server error warning but it was cleared right after.

These are usually caused by temporary hosting errors. They are nothing to worry about. If they are happening too frequently, please get in touch with your host to see what is going on.

Is the Sucuri Firewall part of the monitoring options?

Since February 2014 the Sucuri Firewall comes included with all Sucuri Website Security Platform plans. The firewall needs to be manually enabled for protection to start working. You can do this using the Website Firewall section in your dashboard. Visit our knowledge base section on Website Firewall or submit a General Support Request to our firewall team if you need assistance configuring the firewall.

If you have any other questions please visit our online chat for assistance.
