I must say I feel so much better about security of my website. It seems there are many ways to attack a website.

I ran the quick setup wizard and then went through docs to setup many other features and tweak the defaults. Easy to use Control Panel.

Support

Had one question and got fast and excellent answer.

Documentation

Very good and I learnt so much.

Value for money

Definitely worth the money. Don't even thing twice about this one. Besides security it also includes other useful admin features

I used this to: Security the website from hackers

Functionality

Extremely effective against hacker attacks. Allows to keep the site protected and secure, both frontend and backend.

Ease of use

It is not difficult to configure but you need to read the documentation, watch the videos and follow the instructions.

Very good support, fast and resolutive. One of the best support I've seen in Joomla.

Very good documentation with a lot of real cases.

Very well constructed, but you must read the documentation.

I used this to: Company website

Functionality

ATP has been blocking attacks on many of my sites that I never knew were happening. Ability to block them is outstanding.

Ease of use

If you can build a Joomla site, you probably have the skills to use ATP. It does require some attention to advanced details, not too hard.

Support

The written support is fine so far. I locked myself out of my site several times, but installation tells you how to overcome this easily.

Documentation

The written documentation is extensive, and Google search helps too :).

Value for money

I have had to restore two sites destroyed by hackers. ATP, along with backups, are the most important tools on my site protection workbench!

I used this to: Obviously! Defending my dozen or so websites from hackers, who have destroyed two of them in the past. Not any more. Thank you ATP!

Quite Nicely Done

Its mission is simple: create a site backup that can be restored on any Joomla!-capable server, making it ideal not only for backups but also for site transfers or even deploying sites to your clients' servers. Akeeba Backup creates a full backup of your site in a single archive. The archive contains all the files, a database snapshot and an installer similar in function to the standard Joomla! installer.

Akeeba Backup is the reliable, easy to use, open source backup solution for your Joomla! site. Akeeba Backup has won six J.O.S.C.A.R. awards at J and Beyond. Download it for free to find out why! Joomla! 3.4 and later, PHP 5.4 and later (including PHP 7). We have older versions for Joomla! 1.5 to 3.3 and older PHP versions on our site. Features: The Configuration Wizard configures itself for optimal operation with your site, automatically. The fastest and most reliable native PHP backup engine. One click backup. Integrated restoration for same server restoration. Site transfer wizard. Transfer your site between servers fast and easily. Restore with Akeeba Kickstart (free of charge script): restore extracting the backup directly on the server; no need to upload thousands of files by FTP!

Unattended backup mode (CRON job scheduling), fully compatible with Webcron.org Archives can be restored on any host. Useful for transferring your site between subdomains/hosts or even to/from your local testing server (e.g. XAMPP, WAMPServer, MAMP, etc). and much, much more!
