SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA — September 18, 2013
SiteLock LLC (www.sitelock.com), a global leader in website security solutions for online businesses, announced today that it has partnered with ResellerClub (www.resellerclub.com) and its parent company Directi (www.directi.com) to add website security to their comprehensive set of web products that serve millions of customers in more than 230 countries around the globe.
Shridhar Luthria, General Manager & Business Head at ResellerClub said, “We have over 5 million domains and 100,000 web hosts using our platform to run a variety of websites. We take a great deal of effort to ensure that our clients have a secure web presence which is crucial for any successful e-commerce business. To accomplish this, we have been on the lookout for a reputed website security solutions provider.”
The need for website security and proactive protection of online businesses has never been greater than it is now, and unfortunately, the threats increase each year. According to PwC, cybercrime ranks as one of the top four global economic crimes. And it doesn’t discriminate based on size, industry or location. All companies are at risk, and in addition to the financial impact, companies that are cybercrime victims can also suffer significant brand mistrust and reputation damage.
SiteLock partners with leading web service providers and hosting companies that take a similar approach to market education about online threats and how new website owners can protect themselves. Because individuals and companies that want to take their business online first need a home for their site, their primary source of information and options about what they need to make their website successful is their hosting provider. When hosting providers offer SiteLock to their customers, they are demonstrating the importance of having an alarm system for website malware and vulnerabilities, as well as options for malware removal and the addition of a protective web application firewall that prevents harmful traffic from visiting their customers’ websites.
“We see our partnership with ResellerClub and their parent company, Directi, as extremely exciting as it extends SiteLock’s global presence to India and to the millions of customers and resellers in the Directi family,” adds SiteLock Executive Vice President of Business Development, Tom Serani. “When companies make a commitment to an online strategy, they need to know they are working with industry leaders from technology, expertise, and service perspectives. SiteLock and ResellerClub provide highly complementary services that support small business success online.”
“At Directi, our goal is to continually open new possibilities for individuals and entities to succeed with their online presence,” states Bhavin Turakhia, Founder and CEO of Directi. “We believe that new businesses should have the same opportunities and advantages as larger organizations and security is a necessity that no business should be without. Our partnership with SiteLock enables us to introduce this valuable benefit from day one when they launch their online business.”
