JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA — April 1, 2014
SiteLock LLC (www.sitelock.com), a global leader in website security solutions, announced today that it has formed a valuable alliance with DADA (www.dada.eu), an international leader in professional digital services. The DADA product portfolio is aimed at building the online presence of their customers and includes domain registration, hosting, servers, website creation, e-commerce and online advertising services.
As an internationally growing company, DADA provides all aspects of website management and marketing, delivering on their promise to be the “gateway to the digital presence” for their customers. A snapshot of the DADA brands in this business includes register.it, names.co.uk, amen, nominalia, poundhost and register365. Together, these companies enable online businesses to create, promote, publish content, socialize and drive traffic to their websites. The DADA portfolio manages 1.7 million domain registrations for 520,000 customers throughout Europe.
DADA added SiteLock to its services for customers so they could protect their online investments. As small and midsize businesses rely more heavily on their websites as a source of lead generation and sales, the security of their site and visitor data becomes critically important. According to a recent Forbes article, 30,000 websites are hacked each day, with the majority representing legitimate small businesses that are unaware of the infection. By adding SiteLock website security, DADA can support their customers with malware identification and automatic removal as well as vulnerability detection and a web application firewall that blocks malicious traffic and virtually patches risk exposures that could be exploited. Customers can automatically add the SiteLock Trust Seal to display on their website once they are verified as secure.
“At DADA, we are always looking for ways to help our small and medium businesses promote their brands online,” states Claudio Corbetta, Chief Executive Officer at DADA. “It is not enough to give them the tools to host, build and market their websites. Their businesses, brands and customers rely on us for stability, integrity and security. We looked to SiteLock to strengthen security in our international offer, making it easy for our customers to start with full protection from day one of their online presence.”
“Our partnership with DADA and its family of brands demonstrates our commitment at SiteLock to fully support the global SMB market, given their presence across Europe,” adds SiteLock Executive Vice President of Business Development, Tom Serani. “It’s very refreshing when partners take a holistic approach to empowering their customers to build, promote and protect their online brand, going beyond traditional hosting services and educating companies about the importance of website security and online trust.”
