Prevent: Proactive measures to safeguard your website’s performance

Why do you need prevention?

At Iron/Out, our 'Prevent' service is dedicated to maintaining and safeguarding your website’s performance through proactive measures. Our approach ensures that potential issues are addressed before they impact your digital experience, allowing for continuous, uninterrupted operation.

Organisations who optimise performance will often regress quickly. This is because website performance is a lot like getting fit: it is not enough to make a one time effort, you have to change your whole lifestyle.

Continuous monitoring and maintenance

We employ advanced monitoring tools that track your website's performance in real-time. This continuous oversight allows us to detect and address anomalies as they arise, preventing minor issues from becoming major disruptions. Our maintenance routines are designed to keep your site running smoothly, updating and optimising systems to ward off potential performance bottlenecks.

Performance health checks

Regular health checks are a cornerstone of our Prevent service. We systematically review all critical aspects of your website's performance, from server load and response times to database efficiency and front-end functionality. These checks help ensure that every component is optimised for peak performance, reducing the risk of unexpected downtimes or slowdowns.

Risk management and mitigation

Understanding and mitigating risks before they manifest is key to maintaining a reliable digital presence. We assess potential vulnerabilities in your website’s architecture and implement strategic measures to mitigate these risks. This proactive approach focuses on enhancing server performance, updating outdated software, and refining resource allocation to ensure scalability under varying loads. Our goal is to preemptively address any factors that could degrade your website’s performance, keeping your site fast and responsive for all users.

Incident response planning

In the event that an issue does occur, having a robust incident response plan in place ensures that it can be managed swiftly and efficiently. We work with you to develop and refine incident response strategies, training your team to handle emergencies in ways that minimise impact on your operations and reputation.

Empowering your team

To further prevent issues, we offer workshops and training sessions that enable your team to understand and manage the website’s performance proactively. This empowerment helps foster a culture of performance awareness and responsiveness across your organisation.
