SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA — June 19, 2014
SiteLock LLC (www.sitelock.com), the global leader in cloud-based website security, announced that its year-over-year growth has seen the business more than double each year since inception in 2008. A key driver of this growth has been international expansion, spurred by partnerships with technology market leaders such as GoDaddy, Melbourne IT, Register.IT, UsableWeb, Strato, and others.
As the online threat landscape evolves faster than most consumers can post a tweet, the challenge for security tools is to keep pace and prevent those threats from affecting online communities – businesses and customers alike. According to the 2014 Data Breach Investigation Report, published by Verizon, “As economic and social activities continue to go online, criminals will follow in order to exploit the soaring amount of data that can be (all too easily) converted to cash.”
These risks are not subject to geographic, demographic or size discrimination. Any website, anywhere in the world can be a target. That’s why partnerships with leading providers around the globe is so important to help spread awareness of security services that can protect their online businesses. The companies that have joined the SiteLock partner family in the last year include some of the largest in the market, adding credence to message that security should be built in to a website from the very beginning, just like putting locks on doors and windows of a brick and mortar retailer.
To prepare for the onslaught of online attacks, SiteLock has expanded its product portfolio to include a web application firewall powered by a global CDN, dynamic application security testing (DAST) and most recently, static application security testing (SAST) to enable companies to thoroughly test web applications and correct vulnerabilities prior to the application launch.
“At SiteLock, we know that we engaged in a rapidly-changing environment, as online risks continue to increase in volume and complexity,” says Neill Feather, President of SiteLock. “Our goal is to stay ahead of the attacks to prevent them from affecting our customers. Since we protect more than a million websites, we learn about new malware and vulnerabilities very quickly and automatically add them to our detection and removal solutions. And our partnerships with leading global service providers helps increase business awareness of online risks and the solutions available for them.”
