Hey Darcy,

Sorry to hear about your issues. I don’t have a recommendation for a partner in regards to Multi-Site but we use WPEngine very successfully for all our sites.

Hi Darcy,

There could be a bright side -- There is nothing like a painful security failure to focus those that hold the purse strings on the benefits of managed hosting. This might be an opportunity to switch to one of the excellent managed hosting solutions that are now available for WordPress multi-site installations. Pagely.com and WPEngine.com are the most well know in this space in the US, and here in Canada I'm very partial to WPCloud.ca.

Using managed hosting very effectively offloads most security, backup and optimization issues onto the host. Since these are WP specialists with their reputations on the line they do a very good job of handling it.

It goes against the DIY ethic of a lot of higher education institutions, but it is a very effective way to get the job done.
