What's Included

Investing in security is something that we all know is important, but that can be painful at times, particularly if it's been a while since you've patched. The good news is that you can expect to get a whole lot of bang for your buck with our security patching service!

Core Code Audit

We'll audit your core code, checking for modifications that could conflict with the patch.

Access Audit

We'll help you review the user access permissions you have setup. This is an important step in bolstering your organizational security.

Upgrade Analysis

We'll help you to understand the trade-offs between doing a full upgrade versus just doing the patch, providing you with an analysis to inform your decision here.

Itemized Patches

We will list out all of the patches that need to be applied along with a brief on each patch, so that you know exactly what needs to be done to get you caught up.

Extension Audit

We will review all the 3rd party extensions you have installed, itemizing which need to be updated along with their associated prices.

Malware Scan

If you're unpatched, there is a good chance that you could already be hacked. We will perform a scan of your code as well as your database to make sure you're not.


No patch is complete without testing, testing, and more testing. You can rest assured that all of the heroes listed here will test the patch thoroughly.

Theme Audit

Don't forget about potential updates that may need to be made to your custom theme! We will be sure to check for XSS, CSRF and other vulnerabilities that could require fixes to your theme.

Password Strength

We will help you to review the password strength of passwords that are in use in your Magento admin as well as across your organization. Avoid brute force attacks with stronger passwords!

Recently Completed Security Patches

Not every security patch project is the same. Some are simple - others are complicated. While we can't tell you exactly what it will take to complete yours until we're under the hood, the next best thing is for you to take a look at some recently completed projects to get a feel for complexity and cost.

How do I know if I need a patch?

A good place to start is to scan your site for free at magereport.com. They keep an updated list of security patches and will immediately let you know what you're missing.
