Genuine love for WordPress
The platform, the community, the people—all of it. WordPress has democratised publishing, and it is truly a special industry to work in.
We go out of our way to make sure every problem a customer has is solved. That’s actually how we ended up building Migrate Guru.
Remaining stationary means you are falling behind. There is always room to be better.
Here’s how our story begins.
Back in 2010, Akshat Choudhary, the founder of MalCare, was far far away from the world of WordPress.
He was doing kernel hacking at Citrix, building a networking device called Netscaler.
But then one fine day, Coding Horror crashed. Coding Horror, the programming blog of THE Jeff Atwood aka founder of Stack Overflow.And Jeff Atwood had no reliable back-ups—it was only cached versions of the website that saved the blog.
This got Akshat thinking: If Jeff Atwood doesn’t have back-ups to recover HIS blog—what about regular folk? There was a real problem here that needed solving!
And so, Akshat dove into WordPress, learning on his way to kickass products. He built BlogVault—a backup and security service. He kept polishing the malware scanner till it could use over 100 signals to accurately identify new and the most complex malware. This new security-focussed solution became MalCare.
He realised migrating was a nightmare—so the team set out to build Migrate Guru to make it simpler.
But all of these did not solve the problem of taking complete care of multiple websites from one single place. All of these tools were brilliant, but they needed to be integrated into one single do-it-all platform.
So, Akshat and team built MalCare. With the help of the friendly, beautiful community around WordPress, they found out all the problems people had while managing websites, and built a solution that addressed it all. Efficiently. Effectively. Easily.
