SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA — June 19, 2013
SiteLock LLC, (www.sitelock.com) the global website security leader, announced today that it has launched a new online tool to help website owners understand security risks and potential threats, as well as tips and best practices to address them. The interactive tool asks a series of questions and generates a Risk Assessment Profile (RAP) that website owners and managers can use as a guide to remediate their security gaps.
On the heels of the recent report on small business website security vulnerabilities and their costs, SiteLock continues to educate the market regarding the constant pressures and exposures that they face to secure customer data. The SiteLock RAP takes a consultative approach to guiding website owners through their security knowledge, practices, policies and technology currently in place. The profile report rates the level of security based on the website owners‘ responses and provides them with steps to protect their online businesses in the future.
“Based on our in-depth knowledge and experience with small business websites, we developed the Risk Assessment Profile to reinforce the message that whether we, or they, want to acknowledge it or not, the unfortunate truth is that SMB websites are under massive, targeted attack – every day,” explains Neill Feather, President of SiteLock. “We believe that they should have just as much access to insight, technolgy and services to address such threats as large enterprises, even if they don’t have extensive IT staff or resources in place.”
Having recently been named to the OTA Online Trust Honor Roll by the OTA Alliance, SiteLock practices what they preach and exposes its own business and website to the same or even greater level of scrutiny to ensure they do everything possible to protect their customers‘ and partners‘ websites, data and online experience. The launch of the RAP demonstrates another example of their commitment to data protection and online security.
