SiteLock announced today that its president, Neill Feather, has joined the board of the Online Trust Alliance (OTA), a leading non-profit organization dedicated to building online trust.
“SiteLock’s mission aligns perfectly with that of the OTA, so it is a pleasure for me to join its board and forward both our organizations’ goals,” noted Neill Feather, President of SiteLock. “SiteLock and the OTA are strong proponents of educating businesses and, collectively, we hope to share best practices and thwart the rising number of dangerous and malicious cybercriminal efforts.”

SiteLock’s involvement with OTA comes at a time when over 70% of security breaches are targeted to small businesses or similar industries. In fact, there are 160,000 new samples of malware being spotted every day – and trojans are now responsible for four out of five (79.9 percent) malware infections around the world.
