SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA — January 21, 2014
SiteLock LLC (www.sitelock.com), a global leader in website security solutions for online businesses, announced today that it has teamed with Web.com® (www.web.com) to integrate website security and protection into the Web.com comprehensive portfolio of offerings which currently includes services such as website hosting, online marketing and eCommerce solutions.
According to recent research published on ITProPortal.com, 90 percent of websites are vulnerable to an attack. Additional findings state that 95 percent of those weaknesses could lead to information loss or leaks. With the majority of business websites launched being small or brand new businesses; there are often limitations in technical or security expertise. To add insult to injury, many small businesses cannot afford the potential revenue loss or reputation damage that could follow a website attack.
SiteLock partners with innovative web hosting and related service providers that share their focus of helping online businesses succeed. To further provide proactive protection to their customers, Web.com will manage the setup of TrueShield, SiteLock’s web application firewall that prevents malicious bots and targeted attacks from affecting their customers’ websites.
“At Web.com, we continually look to provide better services to our customers and with the addition of the SiteLock services, we can now better safeguard our customers,” states Amit Mathradas, senior vice president, Marketing at Web.com. “We take a customized, consultative approach with of our clients that need full-service or managed programs.
