Stuff can go wrong
Just like it’s important to backup the data on your hard drive, it’s equally as vital to ensure that your WordPress database and files are backed up and stored safely. Even though WordPress offers top of the line security, there are numerous ways in which your professionally designed, custom website data can become corrupted that may be outside of your control. For example, many businesses fall prey to hackers attempting to gain access to information that is being stored on their databases.
Other problems can arise when routine maintenance doesn’t work as smoothly as intended. Even something as simple as a WordPress update has the potential to cause database problems, which is why WordPress recommends to its users that they backup their data before installing updates. Human error can also trigger unanticipated problems to your WordPress database and files, causing massive headaches while attempting to restore the website to an earlier point.
All of the above causes underscore why it’s important to take advantage of automated WordPress backup and protection. If any of your files become corrupted without having a handy backup, then the restoration process can be notoriously difficult for your site. By storing your data in a location that is easily accessible, an automated WordPress plugin can prevent the damage caused if any of your files become corrupted.
