More than just software updates
Watchful.li comes packed with useful features. Perhaps most important among them is the remote backup feature since all web sites should be backed up before applying any upgrade.
Watchful.li also adds deep security scanning and comprehensive activity logging to all of your Joomla web sites. This allows Watchful to notify you when important files are modified or when web services such as PHP are changed. Since these features of your site rarely change, any notification may indicate unauthorized activity on your web site.
