JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA — December 10, 2012
SiteLock LLC (www.sitelock.com), a global leader in website security solutions for online businesses, announced that it has partnered with 1&1 Internet Inc. (www.1and1.com), a global provider of web hosting services. Among the largest hosting providers in the world, 1&1 gives private users and small-to-medium businesses a range of innovative, high quality web hosting solutions that allow them to affordably expand their Internet presence.
SiteLock performs website security scans that check for malware and vulnerabilities. SiteLock also provides blacklist monitoring to identify any sites that are blocked by search engines. Once customers' websites are verified, they are given a SiteLock Trust Seal to display on their website. The SiteLock scan package being provided to 1&1 customers is a custom plan, developed specifically for the needs of 1&1 and its customers. All customers will have access to a dashboard that is powered by SiteLock which provides real-time notification and alerts when any issues are identified.
The 1&1 SiteLock scanning packages will evaluate the need for security modifications to web applications, identify the potential for data breaches, recognize if a website has been infiltrated, and can detect if a website itself is being used to distribute malicious content. If an issue is detected, customers will be directed to where the problems lie so that the issues can be resolved immediately and their online presence can maintain the best possible online security.
"We see this partnership as a great opportunity to offer a valuable service to our customers by delivering a secure environment for their personal and business websites," says Michael Frenzel of 1&1. "We strive to offer our customers the highest quality of hosting services in the industry, and believe that the SiteLock product will add more value for our customers".
Tom Serani, Executive VP of Business Development at SiteLock, sees this as a promising partnership. "1&1 and SiteLock both understand that it is more important than ever to protect online businesses, and we have the utmost respect for 1&1's position of global leadership as we work together to elevate the value of website security in the market," he says.
This global partnership reinforces SiteLock's leadership position in the small business website security market, providing scanning or malware removal for more than 700,000 websites worldwide. With a strong presence in markets including the United States, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, Poland, Romania, Argentina and Spain, 1&1 will likely expedite SiteLock's penetration in these markets that are in need of comprehensive website security.
