I’m happy to announce that Automattic has acquired Code Garage (read more on their site). We’re also excited that Peter Butler, one of its founders, has joined Automattic. As of today, our VaultPress team will be taking over maintenance and development of Code Garage.
Like VaultPress, Code Garage provides backups, security scanning, and crisis help for WordPress sites. We’re looking forward to bringing our expertise in building and scaling Automattic, VaultPress, and WordPress.com to the Code Garage product. I also hope we can learn from some of Code Garage’s approaches, like an agency-friendly pricing model that makes it easy for customers to manage dozens of sites, something VaultPress is still experimenting with.
VaultPress is and will continue to be our go-to service for peace of mind through backups and security, but that doesn’t mean we can’t learn from other services doing great work. Sharing, collaborating, and adapting are key to making sure we continue to provide the most effective solutions and support for every WordPress user.
