JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA — July 17, 2012
SiteLock LLC (www.sitelock.com), a global leader in website security solutions for online businesses, announced today that it is partnering with BaseKit to extend its secure presence to entrepreneurs at the point where they create and design their websites.
Given SiteLock's focus of providing complete website security for the SMB market with an inside out as well as outside in development approach, it makes perfect sense that they would integrate with such a highly respected and accepted platform. BaseKit has received international acclaim as an all-in-one website builder that lets SMB's build a site that "looks as good as most commercial sites" (The Sunday Times, 23 Oct 2011). Both companies share a passion for serving the frequently underserved market of small business owners. They often lack technical support and design resources, so it's critical that the online tools they can access are easy to use and carry all of the design prestige and security protection afforded by large enterprises.
"At SiteLock, we are continually looking for ways to make small business solutions affordable, while providing exceptional quality and technology at the same time," states Tom Serani, EVP of Business Development. "By partnering with BaseKit, we are enabling companies of all sizes, in any market, to truly build security into their website design from day one."
"We aim to provide a website builder that both the most novice and most experienced users could learn and adapt to their business needs," claims BaseKit's CEO Juan Lobato. "We have found that the more comprehensive the service we provide to cover all of their website aspects, particularly the critical element of security, the more confident our small business customers will become in their website's ability to meet their company's objectives."
SiteLock protects small businesses online. BaseKit enables the same audience to build and design websites with such a professional and classy interface that they are often perceived as and able to compete with much larger organizations. At the rate of acceleration of online threats and attacks, website security tools are no longer optional. Now, with the powerful combination of a site builder with sizzle, neither design nor security needs to be compromised for small and midsize business websites. BaseKit will make SiteLock website security services available through their wholesale partner and retail API. Website builders who choose SiteLock through BaseKit will also be able to display the SiteLock Trust Seal on their sites, which assures consumers that their experience will be safe.
