SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA - July 21, 2020
SiteLock, a leading provider of cybersecurity solutions for businesses, today announced its partnership with Convesio, the first WordPress hosting provider that is a self-healing, autoscaling, platform-as-a-service. Through this partnership, Convesio will leverage SiteLock’s Patchman solution to easily secure its hosting infrastructure and maintain a healthy ecosystem for its customers.
SiteLock’s Patchman detects and patches security vulnerabilities as well as identifies and removes malware on all servers. The cybersecurity solution ensures today’s most popular plugins and Content Management System (CMS) platforms, such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla!, and WooCommerce, are as secure as their latest release. Patchman is designed to simplify security for hosting providers. Through its automated technology, Patchman surgically patches known security vulnerabilities without breaking the website or dependencies. In addition, Patchman runs signature-based malware detection and full file cleaning to ensure servers are threat-free. By using Patchman, Convesio can create a safer and cleaner hosting environment for its end users.
“As part of our unique WordPress tech stack, Convesio is taking a proactive approach to improve security awareness and education for our customers, which provides them peace of mind that their data is secure,” said Tom Fanelli, CEO for Convesio. “With the addition of Patchman, Convesio can now patch WordPress security vulnerabilities and automatically remove malware when detected, allowing them to react quickly to any potential threats or issues.”
According to recent research, websites are attacked 94 times per day, on average. With cyberattacks on the rise, security has never been more important. Through the addition of Patchman, Convesio increases its role as a trusted advisor by providing an additional layer of security to protect its users. Along with helping provide its clients with a more secure environment, implementing Patchman allows Convesio to increase business operational efficiencies. A significant benefit of protecting the hosting ecosystem server landscape is reducing support call times. By automatically remediating threats before they cause business disruption, Convesio can save money and resources. Additionally, proactively taking care of security threats improves customer satisfaction, helping to reduce churn.
“We are excited to partner with Convesio to help provide a more secure WordPress experience for their customers. For Convesio, providing features like security to protect their WordPress clients was paramount. Through our partnership with Convesio, they are now able to ensure their hosting environment is secure and their customers feel safe. By investing in a more secure hosting infrastructure, Convesio will ultimately drive business efficiency as well as an exceptional customer experience.” Tom Serani, Chief Channel Officer at SiteLock.

Convesio was founded in 2018 to provide agencies and enterprises a platform for hosting scalable, secure WordPress sites without the complexity of traditional cloud providers.
Traditional hosting has not evolved to embrace the latest technology, and design agencies struggle to find scalable, high performance hosting. Cloud infrastructures are costly, complex and out of reach for most agencies.
To solve these problems, we had to rethink hosting from the ground up, leveraging the latest technology, infrastructure, and development methods. The result is a multi-tiered system architecture that removes all of the single points of failure associated with WordPress and scales as needed at each layer of the system. Websites on Convesio outperform traditional hosting providers, reducing the amount of client complaints. We simplify complex hosting processes, providing a high availability, secure and scalable platform for client websites and streamlined workflows for agencies. Lastly, we enable agencies to differentiate hosting and use it as a true selling point while maximizing hosting profits.
