SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA — March 17, 2020
SiteLock, a global leader in cybersecurity solutions for small businesses, today announced its partnership with Aruba S.p.A, the largest Italian hosting provider in European markets, including France, U.K., Germany, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, and Slovakia. Through this partnership, Aruba will leverage SiteLock's Patchman solution in over 700,000 websites to create a safer, cleaner hosting environment for its end users.
Patchman is uniquely designed for website hosting providers who want to detect and patch security vulnerabilities as well as identify malware on all servers. The cybersecurity solution ensures Content Management System (CMS) platforms such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla!, ecommerce platforms and today's most popular plugins, are as secure as their latest release. Through its automated technology, Patchman surgically patches known security vulnerabilities without breaking the website or dependencies. This simplifies security for hosting providers while increasing business and operational efficiencies and reducing customer churn.
"As cyber threats continue to rise and make headlines, our top priority is ensuring that our customers' business and data are secure," said Gabriele Sposato, CMO at Aruba S.p.A. "Partnering with SiteLock allows Aruba to provide our customers with a cleaner and safer hosting platform. By leveraging Patchman's industry-leading technology to detect vulnerabilities and automatically patch them safely, our customers' sites will remain online and uninterrupted, providing the best and most secure experience possible. This also translates to greater business and operational efficiency by reducing support call times, which saves us money and resources, as well as helping reduce customer churn."
According to recent data, 80% of CMS websites are running on outdated versions, which significantly increases the risk of data breaches, root exploits, and other cyberattacks. By leveraging Patchman, Aruba expands its role as a trusted advisor and provides an additional layer of security to its clients at no additional cost. This not only provides further security for Aruba's clients, but also ensures the overall hosting infrastructure remains healthy, resulting in greater customer satisfaction and loyalty.
"We are thrilled to partner with Aruba and help provide a more secure hosting environment for their customers," said Tom Serani, Chief Channel Officer at SiteLock. "In the face of an ever-evolving threat landscape, today's hosting providers require proven cybersecurity solutions that mitigate risk in order to stay competitive, increase customer retention, and drive new business. By investing in Patchman, Aruba is demonstrating to its customers that they take security seriously and are committed to delivering the highest level of protection and value."
