Juggernaut Security and Firewall

Plesk Extensions - Juggernaut

First of all, we have the latest member of the gang – Juggernaut Security and Firewall. An all-in-one security extension that Danami designed especially for the needs of power users and server-providers. This extension adds an extra layer of security. One that goes beyond the default settings that most users usually optimize for themselves.

Offering experienced sysadmins a wider range of features and increased flexibility. These advanced features include SPI firewall, brute-force protection, real-time connection tracking, intrusion detection, dynamic block lists and geo-blocking.

Juggernaut is a paid extension. And version 2.05 is now available in the Plesk catalog. You can try it for free for 15 days. Then you’ll get two free months when you sign up for annual billing.

Speed Kit

Plesk extensions - Speed Kit

As a result of recent studies, we know that lower page load times directly link to an increase in traffic. Not to mention lower bounce rates. And hence, higher visitor retention on your website. All these things will eventually lead to higher conversion rates.

Speed Kit promises to boost your page loading speed by 50-300%. How? By re-routing web traffic through its caching infrastructure. Even more, it takes just one click to improve your website’s performance with Speed Kit.

After you install, the extension performs an in-depth speed analysis, determining the improvements that you should implement to boost your site’s metrics. When you store a copy of your site in the accelerated framework, users can access your page in an instant from their browser. Even when they’re offline.

Seems like Sucuri Security Scanner uses the public API of Sucuri SiteCheck to detect malicious elements on your website.
