SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA — November 7, 2013
SiteLock, a global leader in website security solutions for online businesses, announced today that it is honored to accept the Best Website Security Award from Hosting-Review.
Hosting-Review presented “Best in Show” awards in categories including, but not limited to: best windows web hosting; best value web hosting; best secure hosting, in addition to best website security. SiteLock accepted the award at HostingCon 2013 in Austin, Texas in June. The award winners were selected based on technology, reliability, performance, customer feedback, and value among other key factors.
SiteLock was recognized as a leader in website security and selected for the award because of their commitment to offering reliable and high-quality services to their more than 1,000,000 customers. SiteLock partners with leading web hosting and online service providers to continually educate their customers about online threats and how they can protect their websites and visitors. SiteLock’s comprehensive services include website scanning to find malware and vulnerabilities, automatic malware removal, web application firewall and a global content delivery network, as well as PCI compliance. When businesses care about their website and use it to drive customer engagement and online purchases, having website security is not optional, it’s critical.
At the rate cybercrime is currently increasing, roughly 26% year-over-year, according to the recent Ponemon Institute report, “Cost of Cyber Crime”, for many small businesses it’s not a question of “if” they will come under attack, it’s more likely “when”. And because there are so many online small businesses, the pool of targets is nearly limitless for hackers. While for online shoppers, the presence of a website security tool and/or their trust seal is often a distinguishing factor as they determine where to browse and buy. SiteLock has conducted numerous studies among their customer base and seen consistent 10-15% increases in lead and sales conversions.
“We are honored to accept the Best Website Security Award from Hosting-Review,” says Neill Feather, president of SiteLock. “We view the award as a source of external validation of our continuous focus on protecting online businesses and helping them succeed.”
“SiteLock is clearly a leader in website security services and offers a variety of tools to help small and midsize businesses evade potential threats, while not affecting a website’s performance,” describes Dave Price, senior partner and manager at Hosting-Review. “We congratulate SiteLock on their award as well as their dedication to delivering website security tools to the growing SMB market at an affordable price.”
